Deborah and James Howe created the literary world’s most adorable, and arguably the most beloved, vampire in Bunnicula, whose titular character is a small, thirst driven rabbit. Beginning with an ingenious Editor’s Note, we are introduced to our narrator, Harold the dog, who has lived a peaceful and settled life with the Monroe family, a tight knit family of Mom, Dad, two brothers, and Chester, a feline of great intelligence, with a voracious reading habit. That is until the arrival of a mysterious rabbit, discovered on a theater seat when the Monroes attending a screening of Dracula. This rabbit, dubbed Bunnicula by the Monroes, quickly becomes one of the family, but Chester grows suspicious of the rabbit’s true identity and origin. When Chester discovers a white zucchini and a whole array of vegetables drained of their juices, the two family pets fear and anticipate the worst – Bunnicula is a vampire! And as Chester expounds, “Today vegetables … tomorrow the world!” The Howes’ delightful tale is a smorgasbord of absurd and hilarious hijinks, capturing the imagined voices of two dedicated and intelligent pets with aplomb. This popular novel will appeal to students ages 8 and up.
