Description


In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about. He started by asking questions that shouldn't have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn't be read. This is the first volume.

About the Author


Lemony Snicket had an unusual education and a perplexing youth and now endures a despondent adulthood. His previous published works include the thirteen volumes in A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Composer is Dead, and 13 Words.

Seth has portrayed suspicious circumstances and shady characters in much of his work. He is a multi-award-winning cartoonist, author, and artist, whose works include Palookaville, Clyde Fans, and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists.

Praise for "Who Could That Be at This Hour?"…


* "[With] gothic wackiness, linguistic play and literary allusions....Fans of the Series of Unfortunate Events will be in heaven picking out tidbit references to the tridecalogy, but readers who've yet to delve into that well of sadness will have no problem enjoying this weird and witty yarn."
-Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Full of Snicket's trademark droll humor and maddeningly open-ended, this will have readers clamoring for volume two."
-Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Full of Snicket's characteristic wit and word play . . . this book belongs in all collections."
-VOYA, starred review

"Please, it's Lemony Snicket. Enough said."
-Booklist

"A Pink Panther-esque page turner that marks the return of eccentric narrator Lemony Snicket....The black, gray and blue illustrations by celebrated cartoonist Seth only add to the throwback gumshoe vibe of this outrageous, long-overdue, middle-grade follow-up series from a truly beloved narrator."
-Los Angeles Times

"Demands to be read twice: once for the laughs and the second time for the clues....Equal parts wit and absurdity."
-The Boston Globe

"The sort of goodie savored by brainy kids who love wordplay, puzzles and plots that zing from point A to B by way of the whole alphabet."
-The Washington Post
