the hostile hospital

My favorite book right now is The Hostile Hospital.  It's a book in The Series of Unfortunate Events.  My favorite character is the orphan, Violet Beaudelaire, because she's a girl, and I like her inventions.

 Count Olaf is always wanting to get his hands on their fortune.  He gets worse and worse and worse.  

There are these silly guys that call themselves V.F.D. and they give out heart shaped balloons to everyone in the hospital while they sing the funniest song ever.  They say it makes a person feel better.

The hospital is a very unfinished one.

This is a drawing of Violet.

Here is the operating theater where they are planning to do something very terrible to Violet.

Violet's siblings rescued her form the operating theater.

The author wants us to stop reading this book, but we keep reading it anyway.

Here they are in the trunk of Count Olaf's stinky car.


  1. Wait just a minute! I thought I read all the Series of Unfortunate Event books and I don't recall a Hostile Hospital book. What happened? Did I miss one? Did he/she write another one? It looks fabulous! Great taste, Greta! I was just wondering if you would like Nancy Drew. I was a big fan when I was a few years older than you. But you're so smart, I figure you're ready now! Can't wait to see you!

  2. i would enjoy reading this book, greta! in fact i might look it up, see if i can track down a copy in my own language? enjoy!!

  3. Dear Greta,
    ...I'm happy Your reading...! The book looks very fun and interesting ... I like to read stories too...When You know how to read ,,, there is always an Adventure at Hand... I dig Your Blog...!

  4. Greta,

    You tore right through that book! We're onto the next one in the series. I love how you always ask me, "What's going on in The Series of Unfortunate Events?", and I always respond, "Oh boy, I can't remember.", then you say, "Here's what's going on…", and you give me a complete retelling of the story so far. Impressive!

    I love you!


  5. I will tell Bela about this book, it looks really good!

  6. Hi Greta,
    I've read some of the Lemony Snicket books but not all of them. This one sounds really good! I just read a good book for my book club called The Year of the Dog.
