5.0 out of 5 stars To old typewriters, tear-stained letters, and blurry photographs, September 10, 2006
This review is from: The Beatrice Letters (A Series of Unfortunate Events) (Hardcover)
I think I can safely say that the Series of Unfortunate Events is the only series I've read where the author's mysterious story might be even more intriguing than the actual storyline. This book is cleverly set up, complete with punch-out letters that spell out something important! There is also a very suspicious-looking two-sided poster. This book takes a few reads and a bit of piecing together, which makes it a lot of fun. There are still some things I need to figure out. You may want to take some notes while reading these letters...

The humor is more subdued in this companion to the series, but Lemony Snicket's reply to Beatrice's 200-page book made me laugh. The whole presentation is both funny and kind of sad...like the books themselves. In other words, this book is worth the buy.

I read the Beatrice letters and i was fully satisfied with it. i read the last book before I read the beatrice letters and I thought the last book didnt give enough answers and information and the beatrice letters solved ( most of) that. beatrice baudelaire wasnt perfect, she killed count Olaf's parents, and lemony snicket was in love with her yet she didnt marry him because of something written in the daily punctillio and i loved this book. I was upset that LS didnt say what was in the sugar bowl though.
