Are things getting better for the Baudelaires? Could they possibly get worse? Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are fortunate to have found a new guardian, Aunt Josephine. Even though she is unusually nervous, she seems nice enough. And the children are also fortunate to be living so close to a large body of water. It's true that the lake is teeming with ferocious leeches -- but if the children wait one hour after eating, they can go swimming. It is fortunate, too, that the siblings have such a splendid view of the big dark lake.

For these are the unlucky Baudelaire orphans, and they will certainly need all their strength when everything that could possibly go wrong, suddenly does.
