A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Austere Academy

The three Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus and little Sunny, arrive at the Prufrock Preparatory School – only to be met by an unpleasant bully. And that’s not all. For in these pages, our unlucky heroes will also face snapping crabs, strict punishments, dripping fungus, comprehensive exams, violin recitals, S.O.R.E. and the metric system!

    It’s a little strange how even though these books each have their unfortunate event they are really enjoyable, each page spent in anticipation of Violets inventions, Klaus’ knowledge and sunny’s Bites. this is the fifth in the series the poor orphans are sent to boarding school and forced to live in a horrible room and horrible children.
