I donít think the pictures are nice pictures, because they look like cartoon pictures!! I hate cartoons pictures except for another chapter book. This book is like the other books by Lemony Snicket, because of his fracases. It is part of a series called A Series of Unfortunate Events. It is like the other books in the series.
I recommend this book maybe to second, third, or fourth grade students. It is good, funny, and sad, because one of the children is hypnotized. They do lose in the end. Probably second and third graders will like this book more than fourth graders. I think people will like it mort when the middle Baudelaire uses the stamp machine wrong!!
