Lemony Snicket – “When Did You See Her Last?”

 “When Did You See Her Last?”:  All the Wrong Questions Book 2 – Lemony Snicket (2013, Harper Collins Publishers Limited, Toronto)

Lemony Snicket’s younger self keeps on asking the wrong questions in book 2 of this mystery series, as he and his ragtag friends – a savvy journalist named Moxie, two taxi driver brothers nicknamed Pip and Squeak, the mysterious sub-librarian Dashiell Qwerty (which may be the coolest name for a librarian EVER), and the dashing teenaged cook Jake Hix try to rescue a kidnapped chemist and restore order to the town Stain’d-by-the-Sea, which is fast approaching ghost status.  Given Snicket’s playful writing style and dark humour, this is almost more fun for adults than for the preteen reading audience it’s geared for.
