There are signs that this series is maturing along with the Baudelaire's and the readers. They are forced to face Count Olaf and make difficult moral decisions. As they watch others around them give into evil decisions they ponder the question of responsibility.

This tale has many creative elements due to the environment of the Carnival wannabe atmosphere. There is also social commentary once again on mob mentality which is oh so difficult to watch happening.

Looking forward to the Slippery Slope!

It has suspense, a lot of emotion, mystery, and you love the characters even the villains!! ~Ella, age 10 1/2.

Good book

A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Carnivorous Carnival was a book filled with suspense and I enjoyed it very much. My favourite part was when the Baudelaires disguised themselves as freaks so they could join the carnival. My favourite character is Violet Baudelaire because she is an inventor, and is the oldest sibling, so I can relate to her.

A hilarious yet suspensful story - definitely worth reading over and over! Lemony Snickett is a clever, funny author.
