This is the fifth book in A Series of Unfortunate Events. In this book the Baudelaire children are attending Prufrock Prep, which is a boarding- type school.
This book is silly, but not in a bad way. The vice principal is arrogant and selfish, making all the children at his school attend a concert, every day, where he plays the violin badly. Violet, Klaus and Sunny (the Baudelaire children), must also sleep in a shack, because they are orphans and do not have permission from their guardians to sleep anywhere else. Even more than the previous books the reader will go "That would not really happen", but it's one of the reasons why this series is so fun. If the children just attended a "normal" boarding school, the book would be boring and over done. However, Snicket (the author), has made this boarding school a unique, imaginative and fun one. Those are the reasons as to why I liked this book.
