The Wide Window
Review
This is the third book in the series of Unfortunate Events and I liked this book. The kids lived with their aunt Josephine. She was funny because she had so many irrational fears. For example, she was afraid of using doorknobs because one could burst into a million pieces that might hit her in the eye.  "Check it Out"
