The Austere Academy : A Series of Unfortunate Events : Book 5
Publication Date: 1 October 2000
Tales of a rollicking good time at boarding school with fun classes and friendly chums will not appear in this darkly humorous story from the Austere Academy series. Three unfortunate siblings encounter sour classmates and mean-spirited teachers, along with a host of other dreadful situations. Follow these poor lads as they amuse your middle-grader with tales of suffering at the Austere Academy. About The Author To the uninitiated, his name may sound more like dessert than good reading; but Lemony Snicket (known to communicate through emissary Daniel Handler, shown here) is a star author to readers who are hooked on his gloomy A Series of Unfortunate Events books. You never know what will happen to those poor Baudelaire orphans next -- only that whatever it is, it's going to be a head-shaking shame.
