Non-Fiction Biography | Humor
A new stand-alone adventure—appropriate for all ages—by Lemony Snicket, one of the twenty-first century’s most beloved authors.
For more than twenty years, Lemony Snicket has led millions of young readers through a mysterious world of bewildering questions and unfortunate events. With this latest book - a love letter to readers young and old about the vagaries of real life - longtime fans and new readers alike will experience Snicket’s distinctive voice in a new way.
This true story - as true as Lemony Snicket himself - begins with a puzzling note under his door: You had poison for breakfast. Following a winding trail of clues to solve the mystery of his own demise, Snicket takes us on a thought-provoking tour of his predilections: the proper way to prepare an egg, a perplexing idea called “tzimtzum,” the sublime pleasure of swimming in open water, and much else.
Poison for Breakfast is a classic-in-the-making that - in the great tradition of modern fables like The Little Prince and The Phantom Tollbooth - will delight readers of all ages.
