* LemonyNarrator

to:

* LemonyNarratorLemonyNarrator: This is heavily, heavily present in all of the books of the original ''Secret Series''. The style is some ways very similar to ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'', though in many ways different. The narrator is, nevertheless, very obtrusive. This trope is still present but heavily [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] in ''The Bad Books'', to the relief of some reviewers who felt it was used to the point of driving the reader to distraction in the original series.
