This is about three kids who has lost their parents in a terrible fire. It was a tragedy but this book is suspenceful . Violet (eldest child),klaus and sunny lost their parents and had to live with a foster parent who isn't like any other foster parent who named Count Olaf has a tattoo of an eye on his ankle . Their foster parent is an actor with suspicious associates who treats them badly , maybe Olaf wanted someting from them. Overall this was a great mystery novel!
