While not the best book in the series, I still really enjoyed it mostly because SUNNY. The little thing is growing up! Which is both sad and wonderful. I love her and her cinnamon hot chocolate. She's so cute.

Lemony Snicket is also on a roll with his writing in this one. Going on about French terms and phrases and all that jazz. I love him. ( )

Yep, it's getting to the point where I can't put the books down now ... I can't think of anything to say about this installment that won't give something about the story line away ... It's getting so good!

On to Book 10!

I love how clever and witty Lemony Snicket is. I liked him when I initially read his books in fifth grade and love him even more as I'm rereading the series. ( )

Worst book in the series, I didn't like it at all. The setting was weird and the plot was bonkers, even for these books. ( )

Book 9: The Carnivorous Carnival finds the Baudelaires working in the House of Freaks at the Caligari Carnival where Count Olaf and his henchmen (including Esme Squalor) consult with Madame Lulu the fortune teller for information on the Baudelaires' whereabouts, the Snicket file and other things of importance. Where does Madame Lulu get her information? Is it really her crystal ball or something else? Where is Mr. Poe? How is Lemony Snicket involved in all of this? Who survived the fire? So many questions, so few answers. At least Sunny seems to be learning to speak more clearly. Surely, she'll be speaking in complete sentences by the next book. Enjoyable and (at times) a bit tedious as always. I especially enjoyed the literal, literary demonstration of what 'deja vu' means (as well as the explanations of other French phrases). ( )

First words
When my workday is over, and I have closed my notebook, hidden my pen, and sawed holes in my rented canoe so that it cannot be found, I often like to spend the evening in conversation with my few surviving friends.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064410129, Hardcover)

Everybody loves a carnival! Who can fail to delight in the colourful people, the unworldly spectacle, the fabulous freaks?

A carnival is a place for good family fun - as long as one has a family, that is. For the Baudelaire orphans, their time at the carnival turns out to be yet another episode in a now unbearable series of unfortunate events. In fact, in this appalling ninth instalment in Lemony Snicket′s serial, the siblings must confront a terrible lie, a caravan, and Chabo the wolf baby. With millions of readers worldwide, and the Baudelaire′s fate turning from unpleasant to unseemly, it is clear that Lemony Snicket has taken nearly all the fun out of children′s books.

Ages 10+
