Crows, secret clues, meals of bread and water in their deluxe cell, and a very ugly fountain are all in the gripping continuation of the lives of the Baudelaire children. In this episode, they spend time with the people from the village of V.F.D. Poe (the family Banker) asked the children to choose a village from a list he gave them. The name of V.F.D, being the same as the secret that the Quagmires told them, was on that list. It was their choice. The children did not know that V.F.D stands for Village of Fowl Devotees. In their continuing flight from Count Olaf, the children are grudgingly housed with the local handyman Hector, possibly the only friend they have in V.F.D. They try to find the Quagmires, but are plagued with misfortune and wretched misery in their search. They succeed, but not before they are cast under suspicion of foul play themselves. 

You must read this exciting instalment of A Series Of Unfortunate Events. I enjoyed this story very much.
