Poison for Breakfast
“Poison for Breakfast is a delightful and welcome return of Lemony Snicket. After finishing breakfast one morning, Snicket finds a mysterious note declaring simply "you ate poison for breakfast". Curious to discover who may have left the note and which breakfast item could have held poison, Snicket embarks around town, visiting his local shops and going down his breakfast ingredient list one by one. What follows is less of a whodunit and more of an introspective, hilarious, and at times poignant meditation on everyday life. Written in classic Lemony Snicket narration and read by the actor who played Snicket in the most recent Netflix series, I loved every minute of listening to this audiobook (a phrase which here means, I read this book in one sitting, delightfully nostalgic for days spent reading Lemony Snicket books in my youth).”Kelly, Mysterious Galaxy Books
