    Mischief and magic. Tinkers and fairies. Do you believe in magic? 
    Evelyn, an orphan, doesn’t believe in magic anymore, but then the meddlesome tinkers arrive in her village and change her world forever. 
    Farran Sherwin cupped a hand to his ear and said, “I can’t hear you. Do you believe in fairies?” 
    The hall erupted into chaos as children sprang out of their seats, spilling popcorn under their feet as they yelled, “Yes!” 
    The tinker staggered as if he had been struck by a sound-wave and the children giggled. 
    Farran cocked his head. “Listen. Can you hear someone?” 
    A hush settled over the children. They perched on the edge of their seats, palms gripping the armrests. Their faces were pinched tight as they gazed up at the stage. 
    He widened his eyes and whispered, “She’s coming.” 
    A heart-lifting tale suitable for junior readers or a perfect bedtime read by parents and grandparents for younger children.

    NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES 
    As the three Baudelaire orphans warily approach their new home Prufrock Preparatory School, they can't help but notice the enormous stone arch bearing the school's motto Memento Mori or "Remember you will die." This is not a cheerful greeting and certainly marks an inauspicious beginning to a very bleak story just as we have come to expect from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, the deliciously morbid set of books that began with The Bad Beginning and only got worse.

    NOWA NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES 
    Dear Reader, 
    If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives, I am sorry to say, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and this one may be the worst of them all.If you haven't got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, a signalling device, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup, a horrible villain, and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this book will probably fill you with despair.I will continue to record these tragic tales, for that is what I do. You, however, should decide for yourself whether you can possibly endure this miserable story. 
    With all due respect, 
    Lemony Snicket

    Zebras come from the family of horses and donkeys. They are known to have black and white stripes which make them different from horses and donkeys. Their stripes usually have unique patterns for each zebra just like the fingerprints of every human.Zebras have three species: the plains zebra, Grevy’s zebra and mountain zebra. These species can be found in Africa. Unlike donkeys and horses, they are not usually domesticated. Typically, they are social animals that live in small to large groups.
