It appears we have come to the wrong house Baudelaires
I hope his house is as nice as this house
Count Olaf doesn't live here. I barely even know him. He lives in the house across the street. But you are welcome to come and visit me whenever you like.
After receiving the news that their parents perished in a terrible fire that also destroyed their home, the Baudelaire children were told that they were to live with their new guardian, Count Olaf. They were on their way to Count Olaf's house in Mr Poe's car.
This sure could use a cleanup...
I understand that my humble home may not be as fancy as the Baudelaire mansion.
Mr Poe pulled up to a delightful home and when they knocked on the door, a lovely older looking woman named Justice Strauss opened the door and kindly greeted the Baudelaires. The children asked if this is where Count Olaf lives, but when Justice Strauss points them to where Count Olaf really lives, a chill runs down the children's spines.
I cant believe the amount of work Count Olaf expects us to get done.
I know, we better get started
Their new guardian's house was appalling. They were shocked at the state of Count Olaf's house. They noticed a creepy looking eye on the front door. And when they caught a glimpse of Count Olaf, they were even more shocked. He had one long eyebrow instead of two, he was tall and lanky and his skin was the whitest of white.
The inside of the house wasn't anymore promising. It was scummy and filthy. Mr Poe's coughing got worse and worse for every second he was in the house because of all the dust
Once Mr Poe had left, Count Olaf gave the children an endless list of difficult chores that almost seemed impossible to complete.
The children went up to their room and were dismayed to see that they had only been supplied with one bed, a pile of rocks on the floor and a painting on the wall of an eye, as if Count Olaf was always watching them.They decided to use the curtains as a bed for Sunny and they would take turns sleeping in the small, awful bed.
