WARNING: LISTENING TO THIS TAPE WILL ONLY MAKE YOU WEEP...Dear Listener,If you are looking for a story about cheerful youngsters spending a jolly time at boarding school, look elsewhere. Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent and resourceful children, and you might expect that they would do very well at school.Don't.For the Baudelaires, school turns out to be another miserable episode in their unlucky lives. Truth be told, within the chapters that make up this dreadful story, the children will face snapping crabs, strict punishments, dripping fungus, comprehensive exams, violin recitals. S.O.R.E., and the metric system.It is my solemn duty to stay up all night reading my history of these three hapless youngsters into a microphone, but you may be more comfortable getting a good night's sleep. In that case, you should probably listen to something else.With all due respect,LEMONY SNICKET

3.0 The Austere Academy (A Series of Unfortunate Events #5)
The Baudelaire Orphans go to a private school. Meet the Quagmire Triplets[who are down to twins], run ragged by Count Olaf and live in a shack. Ends up with the Quagmires being kidnapped by Count Olaf’s henchmen[they have an enormous fortune of their own]. Mr Poe is as useless as usual.
