Lisa gives an overview of the book:

Latkes are potato pancakes served at Hanukkah. Lemony Snicket is an alleged children’s book author. Lisa Brown is an alleged illustrator. For the first time in literary history, these three elements are combined in one book. People who are interested in any or all of these things will find this book so enjoyable it will feel as if Hanukkah is being celebrated for several years, rather than eight nights. People who are interested in none of these things will get what they deserve.
