A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Penultimate Peril

The penultimate travails of the poor Baudelaire orphans are more miserably woeful than ever. Will they ever escape the ogre Olaf and his hideous henchmen? Probably the next-to-last things you would like to read about are a harpoon gun, a rooftop sunbathing salon, two mysterious initials, three unidentified triplets, a notorious villain and an unsavoury curry. Next-to-last things are the first thing to be avoided!

    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 twelfth in the series and the realisation that these beloved books are coming to a close starts to set in.
