Those poor Baudelaire children. They are relocated to a good home. Uncle Monty is a brilliant herpetologist. His house has a reptile room where nothing bad happens. Until, that is, an old foe appears in disguise with his mind set on a plan to get rid of the children and become the inheritor of their fortune.
Just when things are looking up they go horribly, horribly wrong. Such is life in the Series of Unfortunate Events.
3 down plus 49 to go.
