Book 9: The Carnivorous Carnival (buy the book here)
This next miserable story is set at the Caligari Carnival where Madame Lulu uses her glass ball to tell Count Olaf the Baudelaires whereabouts!
After a stuffy trip in the back of Olaf’s fancy car, the orphans disguise as freaks* for the carnival to discover Olaf’s nasty scheme. In their freakish caravan they meet Kevin, Colette and Hugo and every day they are forced to perform in a Freak Show. The Baudelaires must try to get into the fortune telling tent owned by Madame Lulu and find out how she knew where the Baudelaires went on their miserable travels….
I loved this one but personally the next book is my absolute favourite! I’ll tell you about that one in my next post. Anyway, this one I enjoyed because it includes lions!! Olaf buys two of them for Lulu so that every day the audience would watch one of the freaks get eaten by them! That’s all perfectly funny for the audience but not for the freaks and especially not for Violet, Klaus and Sunny who are determined to solve the case! Read the book to find out the rest!!
