                            In A Series of Unfortunate Events "The Wide Window", Aunt Josephine is the new guardian of the Baudelaire orphans.  She is afraid of everything.  Captain Sham (Count Olaf) is trying to steal the orphans' fortune yet again.  They have to save Aunt Josephine, reveal Count Olaf, and save the day!
                        Some of the lessons that you learn are to listen to children once in a while.  You shouldn't always think their wrong.  They might always be right.  Or at least some of the time.  Not all children are helpless and stupid.  The Baudelaire orphans were almost every time in this book.
                        This is an exciting novel, it's so thrilling.  It's a unique novel because of all the depression.  The villain always gets away.  It's such a good book.  The leeches are especially exciting.  (Nathan L.,  Student)
