Lemony Snicket to publish new series

12th November 2009

Four new titles will be written by the author of the bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Lemony Snicket, the pseudonym used by Daniel Handler, has moved from HarperCollins to Little, Brown Book Group and will publish the new series in 2012.

Titles written under the A Series of Unfortunate Events banner include The Carnivorous Carnival, The Hostile Hospital and The End. The books have sold 60 million copies worldwide and spawned a movie spin-off starring Jim Carrey.

In addition, Handler will publish a work of young adult fiction under his own name in 2011, with New York Times visual blogger Maira Kalman contributing the artwork.

Megan Tingley, publisher of Little, Brown's children's division, commented: 'These will be highly inventive and entertaining works that will enthrall Lemony Snicket's legions of fans, as well as firmly establish Mr Handler as a force to be reckoned with in the world of young adult literature.'

According to Handler, he decided to write children's stories under the pseudonym Lemony Snicket after coming up with the name by mistake when researching his novel The Basic Eight.
