Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener,

The word "carnivorous", which appears in the title of this book, means "meat-eating", and once you have read such a bloodthirsty word, there is no reason to read any further. This carnivorous volume contains such a distressing story that consuming any of its contents would be far more stomach-turning than even the most imbalanced meal.

It would be best if I didn't mention any of the unnerving ingredients of this story, particularly a confusing map, an ambidextrous person, an unruly crowd, a wooden plank, and Chabo the Wolf Baby.

To avoid causing discomfort, your time might be better filled with something more palatable, such as eating your vegetables, or feeding them to someone else.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

What the Critics Say

    Story
    "DONT PURCHASE THIS AUDIO BOOK"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I love the story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    violet because shes inventive


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tim Curry?

    ANYONE ELSE BUT HIM


    What character would you cut from The Carnivorous Carnival?

    The two powder face twins


    Any additional comments?

    I wish i purchased a hard copy of the book rather than an audio because of the narrators voice

    "Just okay"

    Some parts of the book are hard to understand. The book on the other hand is very good.

    "No letter again"

    I loved the story, but once again the letter to the editor was missing much to my dismay :(
