Lemony Snicket Giveaway!

In less than two weeks, we will be chatting live with the one and only Lemony Snicket, where he will be taking questions from you! In honor of that live chat, we are giving away five signed copies of his latest novel, All the Wrong Questions #1: Who Could That Be at This Hour?

All The Wrong Questions will eventually be a four-book series. This first installment begins the tale of a young Lemony Snicket. But that’s all I can tell you—you see, it is top secret information.

The summary reads:

In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about. He started by asking questions that shouldn’t have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn’t be read. This is the first volume.

Wondering how to get your own signed copy of Who Could That Be at This Hour?

Easy! Simply comment on this post with the phrase: “My favorite Lemony Snicket character is…” and tell us your favorite of Mr. Snicket’s creations! You have until January 15 at 11:59 p.m. to enter, so get those comments in! Click here for complete rules.

  76. Deborah Bishop-Karney

    My favourite Lemony Snickett character is Count Olaf. While he is an antagonist in the series, I’m sure his story would read differently if he was the one to tell it. ;>))

  77. Becky Wilson

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire.

  78. My favorite Lemony Snicket character is NOT Count Olaf obviously, or any other notorious cakesniffer…. The thing is, I love MANY of his characters… The Baudelaires and the Quagmires and the Snickets… The books are amazing. Love them. With all due and respect – S

  79. Matt Lawson

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Carmelita Splats because she is “adorable, beautiful, cute, dainty, eye-pleasing, flawless, gorgeous, harmonious, impeccable, jaw-droppingly adorable, keen, luscious, magnificent, nifty, obviously adorable, photogenic, quite adorable, ravishing, splendid, thin, undeformed, very adorable, well-proportioned, xylophone, yummy, and zestfully adorable.”

  80. Kamia R.

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character has to be Lemony himself. I loved how he would always slyly work himself into the books and of course, his doomed love with Beatrice was heartbreaking. I’d always read the author description and the “unofficial” books like The Beatrice Letters and Horseradish in the hopes of a better understanding of the enigmatic man. I’ve read Who Could That Be at This Hour? and I eagerly wait the next installment.

  81. mary angela young

    My favorite Lemony Snickett character is Count Olaf. He is so funny!!

  82. kamryn

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf

  83. Jim

    My favorite Lemony Snickett character is Count Olaf. He is one determined fellow.

  84. Carol Bitonti

    It is cruel to ask us to list our favorite Lemony Snicket character because he has written so many brilliant characters. I love each of the Baudelaires for their unique abilities; biting, inventing, and researching. Each of their many guardians have memorable traits as well, though Uncle Monty is my clear favorite. Count Olaf is a fascinating villain. Carmelita Spats is, well, Carmelita Spats, who gifted us with a wonderful phrase, “Cake-sniffers”. I also love Beatrice and Lemony’s love for her. I can’t choose just one!

  85. My favorite Lemony Snicknet character is impossible to choose. I have a soft spot for Uncle Monty among many others…I’m simply thrilled that the series is continuing.

  86. Chels May

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Klaus Baudelaire. I think he’s absolutely brilliant. ; D

  87. Kim G.

    My children both love Sunny! I think Lemony Snickett himself would have to be my favorite character. We just finished the second book “The Reptile Room” and literally could not stop laughing at some of it- needless to say, my children will NEVER,ever,ever,ever,ever,….. ever……ever play with an electric socket! What a great author!!! We are definitely looking forward to the new series

  92. My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny!!!

  93. B. H

    That is hard! I have many favorite Lemony Snicket characters! I love the Snicket siblings because they seem to really care about each other. I like Dewey Denouement because he is very nice and kind. I also like Beatrice, Mr. Snicket’s love. I imagine her to be very nice and understanding.

    My favorite Lemony Snicket is Violet. It is amazing how she can create something out of whatever she has at the moment.

  98. Kristine Fangcreed

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is the ever fashionable and somewhat dastardly Esmé Squalor, due the fact that I have never encountered a person like her in life.

  116. Christian Lopez

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is… Klaus Baudelaire. Im a bookworm too in Real life

  117. Meg

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Fiona. She and her mushroom obsession are adorable and I like how she added dimension to Olaf’s henchman.

  118. Christine Allen

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny – I just love her teeth! I wouldn’t be surprised if all of her ‘baby talk’ is really ancient languages.

  119. Daniel H

    My favorite character is The Incredibly Deadly Viper.

  120. My Favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf!

  121. Tilly

    Sitting here, reading the comments already posted, I went back and forth between many characters. So, in other words, my favorite Lemony Snicket character is either Violet, Sunny, Esme, Carmelita, Uncle Monty, Count Olaf, or Vice Principal Nero. Yes, I know that doesn’t exactly narrow it down at all, but what can you say.. :)

  122. Dana Dammar

    I believe my favorite “character” Is Lemony Snicket himself. When he intervenes my reading, it always leaving me laughing. Also because I do believe that Lemony Snicket himself is a character, seeing as the name might just be a pen name. Either way, he is definitely my favorite!

  123. me

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire

  124. Sasha

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny Baudelaire from the Series of Unfortunate events. I started reading the series in 4th grade, and all throughout the book I truly loved Sunny for how smart she was even if she didn’t have a clear way to communicate. My favorite book by Lemony Snicket is “The End” , or the last book in The Series of Unfortunate events, book 13. I love that one and have read it at least 4 times because I truly enjoy reading it. I love how all of it comes along and Count Olaf does ‘intresting’ things. And, when someone asks for book suggestions, I always suggest this series.

  125. My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Montgomery Montgomery. He is, in my opinion, the best (if not brightest) of the Baudelaire guardians. A wise man, and good. :-)

  126. Alley K

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet. I always wanted to be like her…

  127. My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny too. :)

  128. Kathryn

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is The Incredibly Deadly Viper.

  129. Demi

    I always find it hard to pick a favorite character, but on this one, I’ll have to go with Sunny Baudelaire. Klaus, I can relate with — we both read that much — but Sunny tops him. She’s just the amusing one. The fun one. From her gnawing of carrots to baby language.

  130. Charlene T

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Klaus Baudelaire because he inspires me to read more books and find out more information in the world. He also gives me a deep love and fascination of books and to this day that principle is instilled in me since childhood. All around Klaus is my favorite because without his influence from his love of reading I might not have gain my deep interest in reading.

  131. Meaghan Petty

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny. My husband and I have read and have all the books in hardcover and we even have our 11-month-old bite all his correspondence just like Sunny did.

  132. Cole

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire.

  133. Haley Peters

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire.

  134. My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf, he is really interesting.

  135. Jose V.

    My favorite character is probably Isadora Quagmire, if not Kit Snicket. I just found them both super kind and interesting.

  136. Sandra

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Jerome Squalor…but also Esmé Gigi Geniveve Squalor.

  137. Catherine Freeman

    My favourite Lemony Snicket character is Lemony Snicket.

  138. Victoria Fall

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire. She always uses her resourcefulness and creativity to improve things or solve a problem.

  139. Melissa

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Quigley Quagmire.

  140. Christina

    Friday Caliban is my definite favorite. Straightforward yet polite, kind and generous, taking no nonsense while still remaining respectful, all wrapped up in a fluffy white robe.

  141. Amanda

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf.

  142. Marley

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny because she can climb with her teeth and can bite through almost anything she can also fit under the smallest holes to find clues to foil Count Olaf’s plots and plans.

  143. Andy

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character has to be Sunny Baudelaire mostly because of her funny remarks like “Wasabaza!”, her attitude, which is nothing short of Sunny, and her ability to use her teeth to do anything.

  144. Issac

    My favorite Lemony Snicknet character

  145. jessica

    My favorite Lemony Snicket characater is aunt Josephine because she is so funny when klaus said there would be realtors and she jumped out of that cave and into that boat as fast as she could ahahahahahah! lol

  146. Issac

    My favorite Lemony Snicknet character is Sunny because whenever I read a funny part in the book of her, she inspires me and always makes me laugh when she was sword fighting with her teeth! How does she do that!

  147. korben mathe

    my favorite Lemony Snicket character is Klaus because he sounds like the boy that I would be and I like his creativity but i also like Sunny a lot also!

  148. Sandra Rodriguez

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet because she can invent something out of anything like she could create light out of just a light bulb switch wire and a battery or if they wanted to do it an easy way they could get a flashlight. But Violet of course would do it the hard way I just like Violet because she can in vent anything with the right tools.

  149. Domino

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Quigley Quagmire because he is a very nice boy and I feel bad for him after everything he has been through.

  150. Avery Bird

    “My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Klaus because he loves reading just like me and also because hes a really fast thinker
    like in the 10th book in the lion pen and the wood mill!
    p.s.Somebody tell me what v.f.d means because it does not mean village of fowl something.

  151. Tyra Brown

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Beatrice! She’s consistently mentioned in the dedications, and in the Unauthorized Autobiography. Love her.

  152. Rachel

    My favourite Lemony Snicket character is Kit Snicket.

  153. BetsyC

    “My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire so creative and inventing things!!

  154. Allison J

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is the Virginian Wolfsnake.

  155. My favorite lemony snicket charectar is count olaf because he makes the series of unforchanet events intresting.

  156. My favorite lemony snicket charecta is count olaf he makes the series of unforchanet events interesting.

  157. Noon

    In a series so fantastically developed, it really is quite hard to pinpoint my favorite Lemony Snicket character. I’m rather fond of the magpies (are there magpies? Perhaps I’m crossing alias territory—but Adverbs has always made the more striking impression), but for the purposes of owning a book touched by the man himself I’ll say that Violet is my favorite character. She transcends female stereotype without ever meaning to. I think it’s pretty important to have those kinds of role models as a kid.

    (On second thought, it’s probably the magpies. The birds are, after all, always there.)

  158. Amy

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Beatrice because of the way he writes about her. I enjoyed reading his fresh take on love and about the novel ways he shows affection for her.

  159. bn100

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf.

  160. Patricia

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire

  161. Becca Lee

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Klaus, but Esme Squalor holds a close second.

  162. Patty P

    My favorite character was Sunny. The wit of the youngest Baudelaire orphan reminded me of the my own daughter also the youngest. The wit and charm of the youngest of siblings is uncanny and so pleasantly surprising! Myself being the middle of three, just as witty as my siblings but altogether different because it is based on practicality, or it seems to me that way! My darling daughter has the wit, charm, practicality that is sometimes seemingly sarcastic (by no means meaning to!) We were born and bred in the north and are now living in the great state of South Carolina where the “wit” we call normal is looked upon with a raised eyebrow!
    Sunny appealed to us in such a way that she felt like our home away from home, Michigan!

  163. Austin Marek

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Uncle Monty

  164. Ariel J.

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf.

  165. Ashley

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf, cause he’s super cool.

  166. Meg

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Quigley Quagmire.

  167. Josh

    My Favorite Lemony Snicket Character is: Aunt Josephine. She was an peculiar lady with mannerisms. She took good care of the Baudelairs although she was very superstitious. She was a genuis with grammar. Also she proved intelligent enough to leave mistakes in a letter to point them to where she was hiding out at. You have to love oh dear Aunt Josephine.

  168. Inka Bujalska

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is the ultimately hapless Uncle Monty!

  169. Alica

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Klaus Baudelaire.

  170. Sara

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire. I love how she can always invent something that can get them out of a bad situation.

  171. Deborah F

    My Favorite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny Baudelaire and I would like her to be my personal chef because she knows how to cook.

  172. Nilly

    My favourite Lemony Snicket character is actually Lemony Snicket himself – it was hard to pick but I decided on him in the end because he’s extremely interesting.

  173. Alex C

    My favourite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny Baudelaire. She makes very sneaky comments for a baby.

  174. Brianna

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire.
    x

  175. Sarah

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Lemony Snicket himself. He tells the stories with such wonderful, dry humor and his tragic story makes him both easy to sympathize with and relate to.

  176. Max Bilodeau

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Olivia Caliban

  177. Madison Scott

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Lemony Snicket himself, because of his endearingly pessimistic views on life and his wittiness.

  178. lyn

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is… Klaus Baudelaire!

  179. Luke

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Lemony Snicket. Although he attempts to remove himself from the treacherous tale of the Baudelaires and the bias world to which they belong, he can’t help but employ the characteristics of the adult world which is so plainly cruel and nonsensical. He records the lives of the Baudelaires in such a melancholy fashion, that it leaves readers curious of not just the trials of the children, but also the hidden woe of the author himself. The character has so much depth, and such an aura of mystique that he is undoubtedly my favourite character.

  180. Brittany

    My favorite Lemony Snicket characer is Lemony Snicket.

  181. Gina

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire!

    Me and my 6 yr old’s favourite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny Baudelaire.

  184. James McCracken

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is definitely Klaus Baudelaire! I always related to him when I was younger and first started reading the books. It was great to watch him expand and grow into a much stronger character over the course of the series!

  185. Clarissa

    My favourite Lemony Snicket character is Uncle Monty (: He is so kind and sweet, and genuinely cares about the Baudelaire orphans!

    My oldest daughter has autism. When she was born I sat in the NICU reading SOUE to her. To this day she loves the books and the movie. Her favorite character is the Sunny. She affectionately refers to her as “The Baby.” Best moment ever she looked at me one night and said, “I’m sorry I don’t speak monkey.” I know that’s from the movie but she is mostly non-verbal so it made our night!

  194. Austin N.

    For a series so packed with such great characters, I’d have to say that my favorite is Snicket himself. Growing up with these books as I did, me and family loved his sense of macabre humor mixed with just the right amount of heart amidst a world full of turmoil. Also, he taught us many lugubrious words, a word which here means “slightly depressing yet full of surprisingly educational value.” So thank you, Mr. Snicket. The world need not be quiet with you in it.

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet.

  196. Samantha

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is a lump of coal!

  197. Beth

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet Baudelaire. I love that she’s mechanically-minded and that she takes such good care of her family through all of the unfortunate circumstances they find themselves in.

  198. Jill Boyar

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Violet!

  199. My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Beatrice. Shh.

  200. David Patrick

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is the infamous (meaning evil) Count Olaf. Not because he constantly (meaning again and again)attempted (meaning tried) to seize (meaning lay his hands on) the Baudelaires in order to obtain (meaning to steal) their fortune, but because of his unpropitious, yet dramatic, demise (meaning his grim and hopeless death)in the end The End.

  201. Michael S

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is… Klaus Baudelaire!!

  202. Kristel

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf. He is so ridiculous it makes you wonder throughout the whole series how he doesn’t get caught. He adds so much to the story and is really the whole reason the Baudelaire orphans end up having so much misfortune. He’s just a really colorful character.

  203. April

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Aunt Josephine. I love how she gets over her fear a little bit by the…well. *spoiler*

  204. Emma Chana

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Dr. Montgomery Montgomery.

  205. Kaity

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Jerome Squalor. He’s such an underrated character and I love how he was kind and caring to the Baudelaires, despite his wife. Also, although he loved Esme, he was able to make it on his own, after realizing that the woman he loved left him for a terrible man and loved money even more than him. I love Jerome.

  206. My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Quigley Quagmire, and close behind him is Dewey Denouement. In a world of smoke and mirrors, and lies and subterfuge, these two nearly unmask all the mysteries.

  207. madison

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf!!!

  208. Ryan Fletcher

    My favourite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf because he has so much character development in him. He’s not just an evil person – people are like chef’s salads. He has his good moments. His evil wants does not define him.

  209. Willis Barber

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is hands down Count Olaf. He’s a true actor, a word which here means he has fully committed his life to passionate and awe-inspiring roles which he selects and creates for himself. He’s courageous, charming, funny, independent, and most importantly he’s not afraid to stand up for what he believe in. He’ll do anything to achieve his dreams, which is a quality that I think a lot of people lack.

  210. Philomena

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is himself. Obviously. ;)

  211. Valerie

    Every single one of Daniel Handler’s characters seve a higher purpose and are all so perfectly crafted. I can’t choose a favorite of the remaining Baudelaires (I feel like they’re all a part of me) so Ill say…my favorite Lemony Snicket character is Lemony Snicket. I love how he is able to incorporate himself into the series flawlessly, and make himself a part of every aspect of the tale. His humor also makes my day sometimes, and is just another reason this book series is so fantastic. I learn so much from his little side thoughts too!

  212. My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Lemony Snicket himself.

  213. Cassie

    My favorite character is Lemony Snicket himself, if I’m allowed to do that–I always loved the hints of his adventures and backstory in ASoUE

  214. Emma R.

    My favorite character of Mr. Lemony Snicket is . . .
    Isadora Quagmire!!(I’m not sure if I spelled her last name right though) I love her and Violet Baudelaire. I love Isadora because she is pretty smart and resourceful, like in book #7, when her and Duncan are stuck in the fountain, she writes couplets and wraps them around the ankle of one of the birds, and they all fly into the tree by the Baudelaires. Pretty cool.

  215. Kaitlin Feiler

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is violet. I discovered lemony snicket when i was very young and it helped me develop my love of reading. I now read the series to children at the library during story hour and my family and i are using a series of unfortunate events to help my cousins learn to love reading as well.

  216. Lillian Dodd

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Count Olaf, but I have good reasons for this, I swear. Without him, would we have had such an entertaining story? His character is so dynamic and dramatic, especially at the end, when suddenly you realize this character has a mysterious background, and has his own reasons for being who he is- and you’re also reminded at the end that he is human, and he does have heart. His wickedness and relationship with the Baudelaire orphanskeeps the character strong and realistic.

  217. Jacob Schupbach

    My favorite Lemony Snicker character has to be well every single character he’s created!!!! From the charming young Baudelaires, to both mysterious Beatrices, as well as Bertrand. Gosh I really think I have an addiction I mean I even enjoy Kevin (who could enjoy someone who’s left and right hands are equally strong– although I am partially ambidextrous.) I loved Carmelita, who invented that lovely “cakesniffer” word oh haha. And of course the invidious nature of Mr. Poe, also the way that his boys’ names are Edgar and Allen haha like Edgar Allen Poe oh gosh! And Bruce who in
    The world is he? And the snowscouts and their dumb song! No Klaus xylophone is a much better adjective than xenial. So yep that’s it. No WAIT Olivia! Ah Madame lulu was
    My favorite. And Ésme her fashion and cackle very good. Wow this is long. I also enjoy babs, Kit, Ink, Monty, Josephine, Olaf, the genderless mass, Colette, Hugo, the quagmires, Jacques, Hector, Fernald, Fiona, Captian Widdershins, Ishmael (Melville allusion), Friday, Mrs. Caliban, Thursday, the denouements, S. Theodora Markson, Pip and Squeak, the Littlest Elf, Ivan Lackremose lake explorer, Ariel, the man with hair but no beard and of course the woman with hair but no beard, Elanora, Calypso, Chabo, beverly and Eliot, Mrs. Morrow, Jerome, and of course Justice Strauss, was that too long?

  220. Sami Squires

    My favorite character is Kit Snicket

  221. Khanh Vo

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Sunny Baudelaire! :)

  222. Lauren Francis

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character was Violet Baudelaire. The fact that she could invent and fix just about anything with anything lying around was just too cool. When reading the books I felt I could relate best to her because she was the oldest of three siblings, as am I, and I also put my hair up with a tie when I am thinking.

  223. Dawn Comer

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is Carmelita Spats. Because, really, what better nonsensical insult is there than “Cake sniffing orphans in the Orphan Shack.”

  224. Helen Wagner

    My favorite Lemony Snicket character is, surprise, Lemony Snicket!
    Love the humor! Love all the characters and tales! Would treasure a signed book!
