NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES A Warning from the Publisher: If you have come this far, it is likely too late. Readers who have experienced the first nine volumes in A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket are usually so weakened by their dreadful knowledge of the Baudelaire orphans' story that they spend most of their time moaning and weeping, and have no strength to read The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril, or The End. If, by chance, your moaning and weeping is more or less under control, there is no need to further risk your physical, emotional, and literary health by reading the four remaining volumes in the series. It would be better to regain your strength by spending your time indulging in less alarming activities, such as whistling or making cupcakes for the elderly. After all, this collection contains all of the calamities in the last four volumes of A Series of Unfortunate Events, including abandoned condiments, cigarette smoking, a shocking revelation, a ridiculous laugh, a fearsome storm, a herd of wild sheep, a truly haunting secret about the Baudelaire parents, another shocking revelation, and Phil. There is no need to expose yourself to such atrocities, not after all you've been through already.

Ein junger Detektiv, ein mysteriöser Diebstahl und immer die falsche Frage. Der skurrilste Fall aller Zeiten! Lemony Snicket, der den Leser schon öfter an der Nase herumgeführt hat, ist wirklich nicht zu trauen. In seiner neuen Reihe von Detektivromanen erzählt er erstmals seine eigene Geschichte. Oder gibt er dies nur vor? Und treibt ein höchst raffiniertes und vergnügliches Verwirrspiel mit uns, wenn er uns in seine Kindheit entführt? Alles beginnt in einer verwunschenen Stadt am Meer. Hier soll der junge Lemony Snicket zusammen mit S. Theodora Markson, einer eigentlich mehr als lausigen Detektivin, den ominösen Diebstahl einer noch ominöseren Statue aufklären. Als er mit seinen Nachforschungen beginnt, muss er aber leider erkennen, dass er immer die falschen Fragen stellt. Doch vielleicht sind es gerade diese Fragen, die Theodora und ihn auf die richtige Spur führen?

There is nothing to be found in the pages of A Series of Unfortunate Events but misery and despair. You still have time to choose another international best-seller to read. But if you must know what unpleasantries befall the charming and clever Baudelaire children read on . . . The Ersatz Elevator is the sixth instalment in A Series of Unfortunate Events in which Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire encounter a darkened staircase, a red herring, friends in a dire situation, three mysterious initials, a liar with an evil scheme, a secret passageway and parsley soda. With 5 million copies sold in the UK alone, one might consider Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events to make him one of the most successful children’s authors of the past decade. We, however, consider these miserable so-called adventure stories and the Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey that accompanied the books for children as nothing more than a dreadful mistake.

Crossing Textual Boundaries in International Children’s Literature

“As the first part of the title indicates, my interest in looking at intertextuality and transformation still maintains a prominent place throughout this book as well. If we believe that ‘no text is an island,’ then we will understand that the relationships between and within texts across the years become a fascinating place for academic inquiry. I included the word ‘boundaries’ into the title because we never get tired of voicing our opinions about texts which traverse relegated boundaries, such as genre or medium. Not only am I interested in discussing what these changes across boundaries mean socially, historically, and culturally, but also what they mean geographically, which accounts for the second part of my title. “I am very excited that this book will be placing even more emphasis on children’s literature in an international scene than my first book did, in the sense that I have added more scholars on an international level. I hesitate to list the nationalities of all of the contributors here because quite a few have themselves crossed international boundaries in different ways, by either studying abroad or finding permanent residency in foreign countries. Nevertheless, the writers have lived extensively in or identify as being from Australia, Canada, England, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, the United States of America, and Wales.” —Introduction

Gar betrüblich ergeht es den Baudelaires ... Die Baudelaire-Geschwister ergeht ein schreckliches Schicksal: Nach dem Tod ihrer Eltern werden die Kinder in das düstere Haus von Graf Olaf gesteckt. Angeblich handelt es sich um einen entfernten Verwandten, der sich jedoch bald als gemeines Scheusal entpuppt. Er verfolgt den miesen Plan, das Vermögen der Kinder an sich zu reißen. Hinterhältig versucht er Violet dazu zu zwingen, ihn zu heiraten. Nur mit Hilfe von Klaus’ Belesenheit, Violets erfinderischem Genie und Sunnys Gabe, die Schurken im richtigen Moment zu beißen, gelingt es ihnen in letzter Sekunde, Graf Olafs Plan zu vereiteln. Aber der Bösewicht entkommt. Mr Poe, der Testamentsvollstrecker der Baudelaires, fährt die Kinder zu Onkel Monty. Bei dem berühmten Schlangenforscher fühlen sich die drei Waisenkinder wie im Paradies – doch nur für kurze Zeit. Denn der nette Onkel stirbt an Schlangengift, und Graf Olaf, diesmal in einer raffinierten Verkleidung, von der sich nur die Baudelaire-Kinder nicht täuschen lassen, versucht, die Kinder zu entführen ... Dieser Doppelband enthält 1) Der schreckliche Anfang 2) Das Haus der Schlangen
