Lemony Snicket writes new books

Lemony Snicket

There's great news for Lemony Snicket fans- he's announced he's writing four new books.

The author, whose real name is Daniel Handler, became a massive hit with his A Series Of Unfortunate Events adventures.

But you've got ages to wait! The first book in the new series won't be out until 2012.

There's no news yet about what they'll be about, but chances are they'll be as dark and scary as his other stories.

Lemony Snicket isn't giving any hints away. He says "I can neither confirm nor deny that the results are as dreadful and unnerving as A Series Of Unfortunate Events."

More than 60 million copies of his books have been sold worldwide.
