A Series of Unfortunate Events - WikipediaAlthough they are classified " children's novels ", the books often have a dark, mysterious feeling to them. The books follow the turbulent lives of Violet , Klaus , and Sunny Baudelaire. After their parents' death in a fire, the children are placed in the custody of a murderous relative, Count Olaf , who attempts to steal their inheritance and, later, orchestrates numerous disasters with the help of his accomplices as the children attempt to flee. As the plot progresses, the Baudelaires gradually confront further mysteries surrounding their family and deep conspiracies involving a secret society known as V. The series is narrated by Lemony Snicket, who dedicates each of his works to his deceased love interest, Beatrice, and often attempts to dissuade the reader from reading the Baudelaires' story. Characterized by Victorian Gothic tones and absurdist textuality,   the books are noted for their dark humor, sarcastic storytelling, and anachronistic elements, as well as frequent cultural and literary allusions. Since the release of the first novel, The Bad Beginning , in September , the books have gained significant popularity, critical acclaim, and commercial success worldwide, spawning a film , a video game , assorted merchandise and a television series on Netflix.

This is probably the least believable of Count Olaf's disguises. A female receptionist named Shirley is hardly a clever disguise for a criminal mastermind. Also, if the Lucky Smells Lumbermills employees work for only coupons then how are they supposed to use those coupons if they have no money? Another unbelievable disguise but this time that disguise belongs to Sunny.
