The Ersatz Elevator

The Ersatz Elevator is the sixth book in A Series of Unfortunate Events, written by Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler).

The book was later adapted into the TV series produced by Netflix as the third and fourth episodes of season 2.

In this book, the Baudelaires are sent to live with a wealthy couple living in the penthouse of a tall apartment building.

“Ersatz” in german means “Replacement”, in the meaning of replacing something else in its function, which could cause confusion, as the Elevator is practically nonexistent.
