In this book of the series the Baudelaire children face mortal peril (again) at the hand of Count Olaf. They dress themselves up in disguises to fit in at the house of freaks in a carnival. They make some interesting friends along the way. But they're not safe yet. They still have to make sure they don't get eaten by hungry lions!
I liked this book because it had an amazing adventure. It's a little scary but in the end it leaves you wanting to read more. I recommend this book to ages 8 and up only because it's slightly scary.
