Sunny Baudelaire was an infant, a word which here means “a person of the age at which one mostly speaks in a series of unintelligible shrieks”, so most people had trouble understanding what she was saying. What Sunny lacked in communication skills, however, she made up for with the size and sharpness of her four teeth.

Imagine what Sunny Baudelaire’s first job interview would be like.

“Well, you’re pretty young, so I don’t expect you to have a lot or experience..”

“Actually, I’ve worked in a lumber mill, I was an administrative assistant at a boarding school, and I was a concierge at a hotel. Unfortunately, all of my former bosses died in a fire at the hotel, so I can’t give you any references.”
