Poison for Breakfast

by Lemony Snicket
# UV3852 Hardcover, 158 pages; 2021
No Longer Available
Lemony Snicket returns with a sharply witty, cunningly thoughtful, and elusively mysterious short novel for readers of all ages. Poison for Breakfast begins with Snicket, acting as both the main character and the narrator, discovering a note that reads "You had poison for breakfast." The present action follows him through town as he searches for clues to uncover the origin of the poison. Meanwhile, Snicket's philosophical thoughts become ensnared within flashbacks and interspersed stories, until fiction becomes inseparable from fact. This book is laugh-out-loud clever, desperately somber, and curiously thought-provoking. Set aside an afternoon for this puzzler—I highly recommend reading it in one sitting! (RR)
