Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061119830, Hardcover)

Experience Snicket in the worst way possible: from the very beginning. Here are twelve books contained in four boxes in one terrible shipment -- complete with four unfortunate gifts.

The first twelve books in Snicket's disturbing serial are slipcased in four handsome boxes that will take readers from the very bad beginning of this upsetting story right through to the calamitous conclusion of the second-to-last book. The Horrendous Heap also contains four gifts, more upsetting than an itchy sweater in an unflattering color, including: A full-color print of one of Brett Helquist's most worrying illustrations, suitable for framing or burying in the backyard. A door-hanger, designed to keep unfortunate events out of any room with a door. A full page of black-and-white stickers, fit for sticking wherever unfortunate events arise. An iron-on, which can render any piece of clothing a part of the uniform of a secret organization.

Please be warned. This offering is a great deal of misfortune. Lemony Snicket advises against the reading, framing, hanging, sticking, or wearing of unfortunate events. In fact, you might be better off ordering a less horrendous heap, if you prefer that sort of thing.
