LEMONY SNICKET had an unusual education which may or may not explain his ability to evade capture. He is the author of the thirteen volumes in "A Series of Unfortunate Events"; several picture books, including "The Dark"; and the books collectively titled "All the Wrong Questions."

[scene opens with black-and-white stock footage of a man using a reel to reel tape recorder]
LEMONY SNICKET: I will investigate further by listening in to the mysterious woman's phone calls ...
[cut to a woman laid out on her couch and dialing a telephone (while a high-pitched ditzy voice is dubbed over the original dialogue)]
WOMAN: La la la la la! Dialing, mm mmm hmm ...
[cut to an older female librarian (short curly hair, dress) picking up the ringing phone on her desk (while a husky voice is dubbed over the original dialogue)]
[cut back to the woman speaking into the phone]
WOMAN: Hello? Is this the library?
[cut back to the librarian speaking into the phone]
[cut back to the woman speaking into the phone]
WOMAN: Hi! I was wondering if any breathtakingly interesting books that are thirteen years overdue have been anonymously returned recently?
[cut back to the librarian speaking into the phone]
LIBRARIAN: Why yes, they have.
[cut back to the woman speaking into the phone]
WOMAN: Oh, wonderful! Because I was hoping to check out one of those books myself!
[cut back to the librarian speaking into the phone]
LIBRARIAN: But of course, come by anytime ... except during story hour, mwa ha ha ha!
[the camera zooms in on a sign advertising "Story Hour Every Saturday at 10 AM" as ominous music plays, then cut to a young girl looking up at the clock on the wall before rolling her eyes and walking away]
["Wait until Story Hour? Yes / No" appears on screen]



All the Wrong Questions is a four-part young adult series and prequel to A Series of Unfortunate Events by American author Lemony Snicket (pen name of Daniel Handler). Snicket signed with Egmont Publishing (UK) in August 2009 and Little, Brown and Company (U.S.) in November 2009 to begin working on the series. Although Snicket has switched from his former publisher, HarperCollins, to Little, Brown and Company, he will continue to work with his longtime editor Susan Rich. The first book, Who Could That Be at This Hour?, was released on October 23, 2012. The second book, When Did You See Her Last? was released on October 15, 2013. The third book, "Shouldn't You Be In School?" was released on September 30, 2014. Also, a companion novel "File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents", was released on April 1, 2014. The series explores Snicket's (a fictional character in the series) childhood apprenticeship to V.F.D.

In August 2009, it was announced that Egmont Publishing had purchased the rights to a new series by Snicket. By November 2009, Little, Brown and Company had purchased the North American rights to the series. The series will have some overlap with his previous series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, but will not involve its protagonists, the Baudelaire orphans. Daniel Handler, the author behind the Snicket pen name, clarified that the series "is mostly an entirely new story. But if you are a close reader of the series you will see some overlap. There will be something for people who are hungry for that sort of thing." He reiterated: "It does have some overlap with the series, but it's not a continuation."

Asked about his progress with the series in January 2010, Handler stated that he was "at the point that it's a twinkle in someone else's eye." He told The Scotsman that the series was "still kind of fetal", and that he would be writing it in 2010. The Times reported he is playing with a plot and title. The only hint to the story's plot provided by Handler was that the series will "approach that question mark from a different angle", a possible reference to the mysterious entity appearing in the eleventh and thirteenth novels of A Series of Unfortunate Events.

On February 8, 2012 the name of the series was revealed, All the Wrong Questions, along with the first book's title, Who Could That Be at This Hour?. The series is to follow Lemony Snicket's childhood in "an organization nobody knows about". The first book has been given a first printing of one million copies and was released on October 23, 2012. The title of the first book had earlier been hinted at in a message to fansite 667 Dark Avenue, where it was apparently designated as "The First Question". The second book is titled "When Did You See Her Last?"

Chapter One of Who Could That Be at This Hour? was published on Entertainment Weekly's website on June 1, and, three days later, on, including the first chapter illustration. Subsequently, further chapter illustrations and the second chapter were made available to the 667 Dark Avenue fansite as thanks for a birthday gift to Daniel Handler. The first two chapters were also made available in promotional attache cases distributed at BookExpo America. The two chapters were also later made available on the series's official website, lemonysnicketlibrary. Chapters Three and Four were later released with the first two as an E-book via and Google Play.



Lemony Snicket's You Choose the Mystery
Posted on 4 October, 2014 by Jonathan H. Liu

Lemony Snicket, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events, has just released the third book in his ongoing series All the Wrong Questions. The series is set in the same world as Unfortunate Events and serves as a prequel (this time with Snicket himself serving not just as narrator but as protagonist).

To promote the series, Snicket has created a video mystery series, You Choose the Mystery. Filled with grainy black-and-white video and silly noir parodies, the videos are like a choose-your-own-adventure tale, with a choice at the end of each one that directs the course of the story. Whether you've read the new series or not, the videos are fun to watch through with your kids.

Start with the intro video above, and then follow the buttons to follow the story!
