Book Review #1021
The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming by Lemony Snicket, illustrated by Lisa Brown
Rating: one star (out of four)
I was not impressed with this book in the least. There were too many pages devoted to a screaming Latke. The ending was a little gruesome, although I know it was played for laughs, I just found it a little unsettling. I felt like Lemony Snicket was trying too hard to make this story work and I was annoyed with how many times the Latke insisted he wasn't part of Christmas traditions. This book is worth skipping and I would even tell die-hard Snicket fans to avoid.
