I really love Lemony Snicket and was excited for this book, but it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. It’s all about how a bad mood travels and influences others, but I the story wasn’t as good as I was hoping it would be. As a note, a man gets his pants all muddy, goes to the dry cleaners, takes them off and is in his underwear to get the pants cleaned. The dry cleaning woman looked at him in his underwear and fell in love with him and they eventually get married. Random and a tad funny, but I thought that was a little inappropriate for a children’s book.
