Ok, so here's the diabolical--a word which here means "wicked" or "cruel"--plan: Lemony Snicket uses a lot of challenging words. Together, we'll make a list of words we're learning from the book.

Pick one of the words from the book below and add its definition. Feel free to look it up if you need to. And be sure to put your name and school at the end of your definition.

BUT, since The Bad Beginning is like no other book, this vocabulary list will be like no other, too. Be sure to start each definition with "A word which here means" just like the great Lemony Snicket does throughout the book.
