I don't care how old I get, I'm just not going to turn down a chance to read a book about a vampire rabbit, especially if it's told from the point of view of a dog. Good old Harold was pretty much living the good life until the introduction into the household of a cute wittle bunny wabbit the Monroes brought home with them from the movies one night. (Apparently a Dracula fan, the bunny was all settled in to watch the Count do his thing when one of the Monroe kids sat on him in the theater.) Little Bunnicula doesn't really bother Harold at all, since he sleeps all day and doesn't come between him and his treats. Harold's feline friend Chester, on the other hand, doesn't cotton to Bunnicula at all, seeing what no one else seems to notice - this bunny has fangs, and his coloration pattern sometimes makes it look like he's wearing a cape. Reading up on vampires while the Monroes sleep, Chester quickly becomes obsessed with getting this little bat in bunny's clothing out of the house as soon as possible - especially after healthy vegetables begin to show up completely drained of their color.

There are some really funny bits in this story, including my favorite scene wherein Chester tries to inform the Monroes know that their newest pet is a vampire. Unfortunately, all this achieves is the Monroes' growing belief that their cat is getting cabin fever and needs to spend some quality time outside. With Chester temporarily out of the picture, Harold befriends Bunnicula, leaving Chester to resort to drastic measures once he finally gets the run of the house again.

Bunnicula is a great story for children inclined towards the horror genre but whose parent's don't think they're quite ready for James Herbert or Mary Shelley! Written from the point of view of the family dog it is a witty and clever book with echoes of a classic spoof horror. Whilst parents will find it amusing children are more likely to be concerned for the fate of the family pets and the loveable Bunnicula! A fantastic read!

I picked this book up and had a good laugh about the backcover, specifically this line: "But Chester, Harold's good friend and house-mate, was a very well-read cat and he knew there was something strange about Bunnicula. For one thing, he seemed to have fangs. And the odd markings on his back looked a little like a cape."

Maybe I'm really a seven year-old in this older body, but how can't you laugh at that!

Anyway, I read it in a very short time and the characters and dialogue are witty enough to keep a person interested through the story. Pick this one up if you run across it in the store. I plan to read the whole Bunnicula series and pass in on to the younger generations in the family.

i was first introduced to this story when i was in primary school, and just recently purchased it for my children ... it is simply brilliant! a fun story, it captivates and entertains, plus allows children to draw their own conclusions regarding the bunny and his nighttime activities. it's a treat for parents as well ... years later, i still find myself amused by chester's antics and runaway imagination, plus harold's benevolent "whatever" dog attitude is refreshing. bonus: if you like this story, there's many sequels to enjoy!!

I remember reading this back at school some 11 years ago and I loved it then and I love it now.

There's intrigue, mystery and humour all thrown into this book and you won't want to put it down.

This is a great read for both children (13+) and adults.
