"A tongue-in-cheek tale of a hapless youth...Adult fans of Bleak House and Oliver Twist will appreciate Ardagh's clever crafting, and kids who lap up Lemony Snicket's series will take quickly to this tale and clamor for the next." (Publishers Weekly)
This story is hilarious! If you like Lemony Snicket or other silly and clever books, you will love this! This book and the other two in the series are definitely worth buying!

I've heard this book so many times. It has so many puns that keep me listening to it as an adult, even though I found it as a child.
