A Musical Mystery By Lemony Snicket

Lemony Snicket is at it again, this time with a classical music mystery: The Composer is Dead. I shan't go into a huge explanation.  Suffice it to say that it appears to be engaging for young and old alike. I will tell you that, in this tale, everyone has a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone is an instrument. To find out more about Lemony Snicket, check out this recent interview.

What advice do you give to children who want to be writers? Avoid wearing squeaky shoes when listening at keyholes. What do you do to prepare to write? I look at the only photograph I have of my beloved Beatrice, and I say to myself: If you do not write these books, her wrongful death will go unpunished. Are you a real person? Of course. Aren’t you?

Here's a musical sneak preview. Happy Sleuthing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPBDHnlhvSQ
