This biography of Lemony Snicket / Daniel Handler is a brief factual book about the author who created the series of unfortunate events.

As a long time fan of the Series of Unfortunate Events (more than 10 years) it is exciting to find out some information like where he got the names of characters.

I recommend this non-fiction book to anyone who enjoys the work of Lemony Snicket.

Daniel Handler keeps the children guessing with his name and background. This book provides information on the author of The Series of Unfortunate Events. Readers will learn that his father escaped The Holocaust and that Daniel plays the accordion.
