Author(s): Lemony Snicket; Seth (Illustrator)
Young apprentice Lemony Snicket is investigating a case of arson but soon finds himself enveloped in the ever-increasing mystery that haunts the town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea.
Who is setting the fires? What secrets are hidden in the Department of Education? Why are so many school children in danger? Is it all the work of the notorious villain Hangfire? How could you even ask that? What kind of education have you had? Maybe you should be in school.
Before you think anything at all about Shouldn't You Be In School? ask yourself these questions:
1. Do you smell smoke?
2. Are school children in danger?
3. There's a witness to a notorious fire, but he appears to have gone missing. Also, these fish tanks are empty. And these books are blank.
4. Wait, those aren't questions. What is going on?
Lemony Snicket is a broken man, wracked with misery and despair as a result of writing A Series Of Unfortunate Events. He spends his days wandering the countryside weeping and moaning, and his evenings eating hastily-prepared meals. He is also responsible for All The Wrong Questions. Seth appears innocent, but looks can be deceiving. He is the creator of Palookaville, Clyde Fans, and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists and can be blamed for the art in All The Wrong Questions.
