Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–6—In his signature Snickety style, the author of "A Series of Unfortunate Events" (HarperCollins) and creator of that oddball little town known as Stain'd by the Sea offers 13 case files reminiscent of Donald Sobol's Two-Minute Mysteries (Scholastic, 1969). Set in the same locale as the previous installments in the "All the Wrong Questions" titles and starring a young Lemony Snicket investigating strange occurrences as part of his apprenticeship for a shady "secret organization," this companion book can be enjoyed by die-hard fans as well as readers new to the series. Each mini-mystery—just a few pages long—is chock-full of wordplay, clever dialogue, noir references, and red herrings. The short chapters end with a cliff-hanger and kids may consult "Sub-file B" at the back of the work to see how the brilliant young detective solved the crime. Black-and-white illustrations highlight key details and provide a few subtle clues along the way. Though there is a narrative thread connecting the individual tales, readers can also delve into the separate cases one-by-one with equal enjoyment. By the end, not all mysteries are solved, nor all questions answered; whodunit aficionados will want to revisit again and again.—Kiera Parrott, School Library Journal --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Booklist

Fans of the All the Wrong Questions series will have to wait for answers to its bigger questions while Lemony Snicket meets Encyclopedia Brown. Oh, not literally. Young Lemony is still in Stain’d-by-the-Sea (why is the town falling apart?) and still in the company of mentor S. Theodora Markson (who exactly is she?), but he’s taking a pause to solve 13 mysteries, Brown-style: short conundrums with the answers at the book’s conclusion. The main difference between Snicket and Brown is that the former has a much bigger vocabulary and far better allusions (eating maple syrup is like drinking the blood of a tree), while the latter chooses mysteries that are easier for readers to solve. That said, Snicketeers will relish the chance to revisit Lemony and several familiar characters (in every sense of that word!). Once again, Seth’s black-and-white illustrations are charming (and occasionally worrisome). But after this delightful detour, Snicket, please return to the problems at hand, as Stain’d-by-the-Sea is losing residents faster than rats departing a sinking ship. (The kind of rats Billy Becker tries to catch in his old pillow case—see the chapter “Troublesome Ghost.”) Grades 4-6. --Ilene Cooper --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

Lemony Snicket claims he was nowhere near the scene of the crime. He is the author of several other unpleasant stories, including those in the bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Lump of Coal.

I read this book over the phone to a friend of mine.

It's a very quick read, and I thought it was a nice intermission from the series All the Wrong Questions.

I love Snicket and this was a great addition to his new series.

If you were part of the secret organization, I could tell you all the things in this book you would find. I could tell you that it contains, mystery and intrigue, bickering cops and naughty children. I would almost guarantee you'd discover where the spoon went and why, and the word that does not in fact, rhyme with gourd. But since you're not in said organization I won't tell you, you'll just have it read it for yourself.

This book has been another amazing book by Lemony Snicket even though it is not his normal type of book. The only reason why I'm giving four and not five stars is because it is split up into 2 short books instead of just being one. I really liked how you could solve the mystery and then see if your theory was right. If you are a fan of Encyclopedic Brown or Lemony Snicket this book is defenantly for you.

The smile on my grandson's face when he opened his Easter Basket and found the book was proof of how great Lemony Snicket books are. This one didn't disappoint our little boy - he did nothing but read for the rest of the day and said it was the best Lemony yet!

Format: Hardcover
I love Lemony Snicket. I love everything he writes, and his style of writing. Although this book is formatted differently, I found that it still had the essence of Lemony Snicket in there. 13 Suspicious Incidents is literally just that. A book about 13 incidents that Snicket resolves very quickly. It's enjoyable, and fun, and quirky.

The book reminded me a little bit of those Goosebumps books with alternative endings in the sense that to read the ending and how the mystery was solved Snicket tells you to go to (xx page) to find out what happened, allowing you to take a jab at solving it yourself before reading who the real culprit is.

It's a very quick read, and I thought it was a nice intermission from the series All the Wrong Questions. Sort of like those short Pixar films played before a Disney movie.

albeit some are a little obvious, but my 6 year old really likes discovering the solution to the so-called crimes. The pictures are fun, stories and vocabulary great for a budding reader and always a little funny and dark enough for the adult reader/listener.

I read this book over the phone to a friend of mine. While she hadn't read any of Snicket's books before, there wasn't really anything I needed to explain. The short mysteries are consistently amusing, much hearty laughter was shared.
Overall, as a Snicket fan I adored this entry and from my experience it seems to function well as a stand alone read, also.
