E #AtoZ Challenge




It’s Saturday and E day! What book do you think we’ll be highlighting today?

Any guesses?

If you guessed Easter you’d be wrong. To be sure, Easter starts with E but I’m not discussing that today.

Do you know the word Ersatz? It means fake or substitute.

What about the word Elevator?

Any guesses NOW?


Ersatz Elevator


The Ersatz Elevator

The Ersatz Elevator, part of A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.  I wonder what he could be talking about, a fake or substitute elevator? hmmmmmmmmm do you know?

Tell me!

  3. Greetings – Erzats Elevator – sounds like a portal of some sort. No doubt there’s an unfortunate EVENT – hope it’s not an unfortunate drop.

  4. I think perhaps your definition is probably the more accurate one. chicory for coffee??? ew! thanks for visiting!

  5. Erzatz Elevator…sounds like a fake to me, probably hiding a portal or some sort of hiding place.
