"I can neither confirm nor deny that I have begun research into a new case, and I can neither confirm nor deny that the results are as dreadful and unnerving as A Series Of Unfortunate Events. However, I can confirm that Egmont will be publishing these findings," Snicket, the pen name of San Francisco author Daniel Handler, said in a statement.

One of my kids' favorite books is Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett. This amusing story takes place in the town of Chewandswallow where the townspeople get all of their food from the sky. Everyone loves living in a town where they don't need to shop for groceries, until one day when things take a turn for the worse. If you enjoy the book, a movie version is being made which opens on September 18th.
Need More Winnie? Try A Bear Called Winnie, which tells the story of the real life bear that Christopher's teddy was named after. You can also find more information about the Milnes and Winnie here.

"Deep in the water
where the fish hang out
lives a glum, gloomy swimmer
with an ever-present pout."
Can anything cheer up this bummed out fish? Will he ever get over his case of the "blubs"?? For a rollicking good read be sure to check out "The Pout-Pout Fish"!
