Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire are three intelligent young children who receive terrible news that their parents have died in a fire.

They are also told that their parent’s have left them an enormous fortune not to be used until the eldest child is of age.

When they are sent to live with Count Olaf, a greedy distant relative, they soon learn he is trying to steal their fortune for himself.

Enigmatic author Lemony Snicket recounts the adventures of the three children as they change hands from the conniving Olaf to the reptile-loving Uncle Monty to Aunt Josephine, who lives in fear of just about everything.
