A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS comes to THE END
My son, Bach-Boy Henderson is a big fan of A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, and when I told him he could interview Lemony Snicket, he was determined to get the author to reveal secrets from the thirteenth and final book from the series.
Here are 13 Questions from Bach-Boy, all answered (or evaded) by Lemony Snicket:
1. Which Baudelaire parent survived the fire, or was it both?
I cannot answer this question until the following phrase is added to it: “or was it neither?”
2. How does the sugar bowl store information?
The same way a sugar bowl stores sugar: one simply opens the top.
3. Who are the Baudelaires with now?
I wish I knew, but if I knew I’m not sure I would tell you.
4. Did Beatrice love you as much as you love her?
Love is difficult to measure. Beatrice once told me she loved me with all her heart, but she was shorter than me, so her heart may have been smaller.
5. Will there be a happy ending to the series?
It depends what you mean by “happy.”
6. What’s your favorite book to read?
7. Why have you dedicated your life to writing the stories of the Baudelaires’ lives?
If not me, whom?
8. Can you give a clue to where you’re hiding?
9. What would be the consequences if you’re found?
It depends on who found me, and how far their voice might carry.
10. Is writing the events of the Baudelaires’ lives helping anyone in any way?
It may help the Baudelaires.
11. Could you explain, in summary, what is contained in the Snicket file?
In summary, a great deal of dangerous information.
12. Where is the Baudelaire mansion located? [Country/Province/Town/Street/Number]
The Baudelaire mansion is no longer located anywhere, as it has burned down.
13. Are people now safe from Count Olaf’s treachery?
No one is safe from a person’s, even after his demise. Treachery hangs in the air forever, like a sloth, or the smell of tunafish salad.
