This book is written by Harold. His fulltime occupation is dog. He lives with Mr. and Mrs. Monroe and their sons Toby and Pete. Also sharing the home are a cat named Chester and a rabbit named Bunnicula. It is because of Bunnicula that Harold turned to writing. Someone had to tell the full story of what happened in the Monroe household after the rabbit arrived.

Was Bunnicula really a vampire? Only Bunnicula knows for sure. But the story of Chester's suspicions and their consequences makes uproarious reading.

Since its first appearance in 1979, Bunnicula has been a hit with kids and their parents everywhere, selling over 8 million copies and winning numerous awards.

Seriously, why would you want to read about a vampire stalker when you can read about a vampire bunny? Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe is a fantastic children's book which would be a perfect read for today, Halloween, especially if you have children who frighten easily (there are no real scary moments). The book begins with an authors note, about recieving a manuscript from a dog, from then on it is told in first person from Harold's point of view. Harold being the dog, of course. Harold's narration reminded me a bit of Sherlock Holmes, but for children of course.Aside from Harold, I felt the secondary character of Chester the cat to be the type of cat I would someday want. Maybe this is because Chester can read and has excellent taste in books. Chester, however, does not warm up very quickly to vampires. Yet, Chester's the most perceptive of all of the characters, and perhaps this is why I love Chester. I like that he isn't oblivious, if it was a horror movie, I wouldn't be yelling at him.Actually, the majority of characters in this book were likable, however the family was a bit flat. Then again, this is a short book, my portion was 98 pages long, so how much can you really develop characterization. Also it is a book for children, and a super-quick read!read more

I was introduced to this book when I was a 2nd-grader who was hooked utterly and completely on the Boxcar Children. I read this in three hours, and wanted the rest of them as quickly as possible! This is such a fantastic book for any child who loves animals and gets a kick out of a good mystery tale. Definitely one of my all-time FAVORITE books!read more

I really liked this chapter book, it was very funny, easy to follow along with and had a great plot. I liked how the book introduces new vocabulary gently and leads children to more complex books. There is a wide interest level for this book; the characters are well developed with a creative story line. There is a slight horror aspect to the books but it is only mild and I think it would interest students more than it would scare them. This book will have the reader hooked!

I thoroughly loved this book as a child. Bunnicula was my dream pet! This story is very well-written, well-suited to its intended demographic, and flat-out adorable.
