This morning you had poison for breakfast.

One day, Lemony Snicket finds a puzzling note pushed under his door and is forced to follow a winding trail of clues to solve the mystery of his imminent death.

But this is so much more than just a mystery. Along the way, he tackles some of the key questions about life. Who was Korla Pandit - what did he do and what was his real name? What are the three absolute rules for writing a book? Why should you never judge a goat by the way it looks? And why does being clumsy have its benefits?

For over twenty years, Lemony Snicket has led millions of young readers through a world of bewildering questions and strange, unfortunate events. In this, his latest book, a love letter to the young and the young at heart, he takes us on a thought-provoking tour of his own predilections.

Long-time fans and new readers (Who are you? Where have you been?) will fall in love with this true story, told in a way that only Lemony could tell it. You might even learn some important life-lessons - like how DO you cook the perfect egg?

Reviews for Poison for Breakfast

'Poison for Breakfast is a book to savour. Every sentence is perfectly balanced to surprise, delight, intrigue and, yes, bewilder the reader. A book about impending death which captures the simple, but profound, joys of being alive. I am a long-time Lemony Snicket fan and this is his best yet.' -- Sarah Hagger-Holt, author of Nothing Ever Happens Here
