Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Everybody loves a carnival! Who can fail to delight in the colourful people, the unworldly spectacle, the fabulous freaks? A carnival is a place for good family fun-;as long as one has a family, that is. For the Baudelaire orphans, their time at the carnival turns out to be yet another episode in a now unbearable series of unfortunate events. In fact, in this appalling ninth instalment in Lemony Snicket's serial, the siblings must confront a terrible lie, a caravan, and Chabo the wolf baby. With millions of readers worldwide, and the Baudelaire's fate turning from unpleasant to unseemly, it is clear that Lemony Snicket has taken nearly all the fun out of children's books.

Horn Book Review

Ever-victimized Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire try to evade their nemesis Count Olaf by joining a carnival as sideshow freaks. The older siblings masquerade as a two-headed person, while Sunny dons a beard and pretends to be half-wolf. The series is formulaic but remains darkly humorous with Snicket providing his unique first-person commentary about bad things happening to good children.
