There is nothing remotely ominous or unusual about the Swinster Pharmacy, but a girl, a boy, and their dog find it intensely suspicious. The tone of the illustrations, with lots of dark gray, does make the place seem a little dark, but it's entirely in the kids' heads. More baffling than funny, really; not my favorite Lemony Snicket.

"It tells the story of a little girl, a little boy, and their little dog, who grow intensely fascinated with the mysterious Swinster Pharmacy of the neighboring town and begin pondering what it might sell. Beneath it is a lovely allegory about the capacity of children’s imaginations to see enigmatic wonder in even the simplest things and find multiple meanings in the most mundane." -- http://www.brainpickings.org/2014/11/18/best-childrens-books-2014/ ( )

Snicket makes our world a better place, I think. A Haruki Murakami for the younger set. ( )

I'm having difficulty thinking of a target audience for this little oddity. Great illustrations. ( )
