Slightly freaky-weird. Which is not unexpected from the likes of Lemony Snicket. This book reads like Snicket was given a list of 13 words and challenged to write a story containing them all in 15 minutes. And maybe he was. Which would explain a lot. I didn't find it particularly funny, but maybe I should reread it with that thought in mind? It's pretty good if that was the point, but I wouldn't call it a good story on its own.

The concept/challenge, however would make an interesting and fun assignment for middle school kids in creative writing classes or upper elementary spelling classes.
