Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-6–In this follow-up to “Who Could That Be at This Hour?” (Little, Brown, 2012) 12-year-old Lemony Snicket is an apprentice in a mysterious organization and still stationed in Stain'd by the Sea with his stern and unimaginative chaperone, S. Theodora Markson. (Readers still don't know what the S. stands for.) Lemony and his mentor have been assigned to investigate the mysterious disappearance of Cleo Knight, a brilliant chemist and daughter of the richest couple in town. Markson is content to believe the far-fetched theory that Miss Knight has run away to join the circus and considers the case closed. Lemony is convinced that the girl's disappearance is connected to a string of recent crimes in town and believes that only one man can be responsible: the villainous Hangfire. With a little help from his friends (most of whom are familiar faces from the first book), Lemony sets out to find Miss Knight himself and to stop Hangfire and his dastardly accomplices in their tracks. While the abundant wordplay and several unanswered questions may trip up some younger readers, Snicket goes to great lengths to keep his audience up to speed, recounting backstory and defining advanced vocabulary in a way that is never patronizing, and is in fact fairly humorous. The author's trademark wit and talent for sustaining suspense make this fast-paced, noir mystery a fun choice for kids who enjoy a good whodunit. And for the faithful fans of Snicket's “A Series of Unfortunate Events” (HarperCollins), this is a must-have.–Liz Overberg, Darlington School, Rome, GAα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

In book two of the All the Wrong Questions series, we find young Lemony still in Stain’d-by-the-Sea, still in the company of mentor S. Theodora Markson, but with a new mystery to solve: Where is Miss Cleo Knight? And what is the secret project on which she has been working? But as Snicket’s pal, reporter Moxie Mallahan, knows, those aren’t the right questions, at least as far as the big picture is concerned. These are: What is this job exactly? Where did you come from? How long will you stay? When will you leave? Why are you investigating things in this town? Though the Cleo case gets closed, the larger issues remain, becoming curiouser and curiouser. While we wait for answers, Snicket introduces a sometimes charming, more often alarming cast of characters: the bickering husband-and-wife police force (and their smirking son, Stew); Pip and Squeak, the taxi-driving Bellerophon brothers; the mysterious (and cute) Ellington Feint; and the mysterious (and sinister) Hangfire—all of whom keep the pages turning. The droll young Snicket makes a perfect presenter as he careens from difficulty to difficulty, yet always with his eye on the ball. Or is it? HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The major marketing campaign continues, including a national author tour. There’s no stopping Snicket! Grades 4-7. --Ilene Cooper

There are six things you need to know about this book. I will list them in order, so you will not be (too) confused, and so S. Theodora Markson will approve:
1. When Did You See Her Last? is the second book of Lemony Snicket's All the Wrong Questions series, a hard-boiled detective style story populated with strange people, unsettling settings, and more wrong questions than you can shake a stick at. (Why would you want to shake a stick at anything? What good would it do? Well...let's not think too hard about that.)
2. This book picks up where the first book, Who Could That Be at This Hour?, left off, so if you don't want to read any spoilers ("spoiler" is a word which here means, "stop reading this right now!"), read the first book first. Also, starting at the beginning of the series instead of the middle will save you from being more perplexed and mystified than necessary.
3. Even if you have read the first book, you will still be perplexed and mystified by the perplexing new mystery introduced in this second book: Cleo Knight, the daughter of the Ink Inc. owners who once made Stain'd-by-the-Sea a thriving center of ink commerce, has allegedly run away and joined the circus. It is up to young Lemony Snicket and his not-so-competent chaperone, S. Theodora Markson, to find Miss Knight.
4. As implied by the title of this book, Snicket attempts to locate Miss Knight's whereabouts by asking the obvious question. However, he soon realizes that, once again, he is asking all the wrong questions. The true mystery is not, "When did you see her last?" or "Why did she run away?" but "Why aren't her parents more upset about her disappearance?" and "How can she be seen in more than one place at the same time?"

Lemony Snicket is my favorite author. I have read The entire Series Of Unfortunate Events and Who Could That Be At This Hour? This book continued the story of Lemony Snicket and the mysteries of Stain'd-By-The-Sea. It features a missing girl, a secret message, a treacherous villain, and a cameo appearance that Snicket fans will love. Well done Mr. Snicket, well done!

I just finished the whole book and I must say I liked it much better than the first book. It also revealed some mysterious elements and characters that will probably be important in the plot of the series. Overall this book is great and I highly recommend it.

I can't say it enough - I love Lemony Snicket, and I love Daniel Handler. I have thoroughly enjoyed his previous series "A Series of Unfortunate Events", but I've been enjoying this one a lot more.

A younger Lemony Snicket is such a joy to experience. His curiousity, the way his mind works, all the questions he asks (wrong or otherwise), and the people he meets throughout are absolutely delightful.

In this second part of the series, Snicket is still seeking Hangfire and trying to stop him from creating more evil in the town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea. The reason for this unusual name is that back in the good old days, the town was known for manufacturing ink from Octopuses/Octopi/Octopodes, hence "stained" by the sea.

This book focuses on Snicket's search for a missing girl - Cleo Knight - who is a chemist and is looking for a new product to bring the town back to its old fortune. Miss Knight is also the daughter of the previous owners of the ink factory, and she finds it her duty to take over and make things better. However, someone is stopping her from doing so, and Snicket, who suspects Hangfire, makes it his business to find out who and why.

As he goes around town asking the wrong questions, he is accompanied by Moxie, a journalist who asks a lot of the right questions and becomes a great assistant to Snicket. Together, they join forces with several other bizarrely unique characters to find Miss Knight and bring her home. All the while, his mentor, S. Theodora, remains completely useless as she wrongly concludes that Miss Knight has simply run away to join the circus, leaving it to Snicket to do her job.

We heard the first of the series as an audiobook and loved it so ordered this preview of 2nd, then the new audiobook from the library when it was released. Fun story both the adults and the kids enjoyed, and the actor doing the reading adds a LOT, so if you can get the audio version, do so.

Love the style of this author. I have been reading his books aloud with my 10-year old son, and even though the story line is fairly simple, Lemony Snicket's style makes it a fun read. Plus, reading his books always boosts our vocabulary!

^O^ The first three chapters just makes me want to read more and more. I'm going to buy the book. I can't wait! I just love the style the author uses. How he describes things in the book is so different from all the other books I've read.
