"[A] winsome story of friendship - proceeds thus, with a Snicketian 13 words in all.... This charming chef-d’oeuvre sings like a mezzo-soprano." (Kirkus Reviews)

A Picture-book with No Pictures!

How much fun is it to read a picture-book without any pictures? Not much.

Michael Emerson should narrate more Snicket Books

Would you consider the audio edition of 13 Words to be better than the print version?

Yes I certainly would

Would you recommend 13 Words to your friends? Why or why not?

Only friends with either kids or people who love Lemony Snicket

Which character – as performed by Michael Emerson – was your favourite?

The dog - but Michael played all the characters with totally panache..!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, as with all Lemony Snicket books it was bitter sweet and explained in some form about his writing style because in Series of unfortunate events he often has adults explaining words to children that they often know already in some detail. This device is found also in all the wrong questions. I will admit the sad part came when the song started a small tear left the corner of my eye
