MEDIA REVIEWS

'Poison for Breakfast is a book to savour. Every sentence is perfectly balanced to surprise, delight, intrigue and, yes, bewilder the reader. A book about impending death which captures the simple, but profound, joys of being alive. I am a long-time Lemony Snicket fan and this is his best yet.' - Sarah Hagger-Holt, author of Nothing Ever Happens Here

'Witty, clever and unsettling - it's Lemony Snicket at his finest, and bright minds that love dark delights will gobble it right up.' - Rachel Delahaye, author of Mort the Meek
