The last book in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is called The End, making it the only installment in the 13-book series with a two-word title. The rest of the books have alliterative three-word titles. My favorite title is for the next-to-last book because one of the words in it actually means "next-to-last," and that's just awesome.

So, my question for you is: (without looking it up!) what's the name of the 12th book in A Series of Unfortunate Events?

And bonus points* for anyone who can name all of the books (without cheating!).
