Reviews for A Bad Beginning
Review - A Bad Beginning
The three Baudelaire children’s parents die in a fire. They’re sent to live with mean Uncle Olaf who wants their money. He plans to marry Violet (14) against her will, but Klaus (12) reads law books and uncovers his plot. Olaf threatens Sunny (2), but Violet outfoxes him by signing the marriage license with her left hand to annul the marriage. It was a clever premise, and worked for this one book.
