If you are not a member of our secret organization, hello there. This is a blank audiobook which you shouldn’t listen to. ~ as seen on the back of the audio jacket
Lemony Snicket is in the town of Stain’d-by-the-Sea but his stay is not a quiet one. In thirteen separate incidents he is called upon to assist in cracking a mystery. Kidnappings, vandalism, food theft, and even potential ghosts, Lemony, along with the help of the reader, solves each case.
13 Suspicious Incidents is divided into thirteen short stories read by different narrators. Kudos to John Scieszka, Terry Gross, Sarah Vowell, Libba Bray, Ira Glass, Sophie Blackall, Jon Klassen, Chris Kluwe, Holly Black, Sook-Yin Lee, Rachel Maddow, Stephin Merritt, and Wesley Stace.
Each story is a mystery that Lemony files and then moves on to the next case. At the end of the thirteen stories, each story is quickly revisited and explains the solution. What a fun may for a middle grade student to try to solve these mysteries before they hear the answers!
I personally found the stories fun and enjoyed the different narrations. I have to admit… some of the cases had me stumped and I had to wait to the end to figure it out. 🙂
This audio is right around 3 hours long. This would be great for a car ride with kids.

This sounds like fun 🙂
I used to read Lemony Snickets to my sons before bedtime. We all loved them. For nostalgia reasons I might have to check this one out.
I have some young relatives that might really like this. The idea of having different narrators for each story is neat and a little different for a children book.
