Spotlight & Review: Personalized Lemony Snicket Books from Put Me In The Story


I'm a huge Lemony Snicket fan, so, when the awesome folks at Put Me In The Story asked me to review their new personalized editions of Snicket's All The Wrong Questions Series, I jumped at the chance...

About All the Wrong Questions and Lemony Snicket:

All the Wrong Questions is Lemony Snicket’s second series and follows the wildly successful A Series of Unfortunate Events, which has sold over 65 million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than 40 languages.

All the Wrong Questions has reunited Snicket with his longtime representative, Daniel Handler, author of the Printz Honor–winning young adult book, Why We Broke Up, which was described as “beautifully rendered” by the New York Times and “perfectly pitched to woo romantics of any age” by the San Francisco Chronicle. Handler is also the author of We Are Pirates, The Basic Eight, and Adverbs.

Acclaimed illustrator Seth returned (against his better judgment) to illustrate the cover and interior art. The cover of “Who Could That Be at This Hour?” was named one of the New York Times’ and Flavorwire’s favorite covers of 2012. Seth is also the creator of PalookavilleClyde Fans, and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists.

*I was provided copies of each book in exchange for my honest review

This is such a fun, smart series! The four books in the All The Wrong Questions series are bursting with Lemony Snicket's signature wit, unforgettable characters, enthralling story-telling, and a pitch-perfect voice.

Readers will journey with young Snicket to the almost dead town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea, where a complex and twisty mystery is brewing. Readers take on an active role throughout the series as they join Snicket and his associates in their attempt to solve the mystery and save the town. Prepare for twists and turns, diabolical villains, unexpected murder, and bitter coffee!

Lemony Snicket's macabre and deliciously dark humor, unique way of spinning a tale, and ability to create intriguing and memorable characters, all shine in this thrilling series. With engrossing and vivid world-building, clever and expertly plotted story-telling, and engaging characters, these books are impossible to put down. Fans of A Series of Unfortunate Events will delight in and love discovering all the connections Snicket creates between these two series. 

And of course, these editions are extra special because of the ways Put Me In The Story allows you to personalize them!
