Harold the dog and Chester the cat live comfortably with the Monroe family until a new furry member is introduced: a rabbit with peculiar habits. Chester begins suspecting that there is more than meets the eye with this quiet animal, particularly when the vegetables start showing up white and juiceless! The feline is determined to expose the rabbit's secret, while Harold debates where his loyalties lie.
Bunnicula is a charming tale, perfect for the season of spooky for the younger crowd. My son enjoyed the tale as evident by his pictures of rabbits that include fangs! We recently discovered that Bunnicula's tale continues in a number of sequels, and they have already been added to our list of books to read together.
Have you read Bunnicula? How about the sequels?
I love Bunnicula and all of its sequels. There is also a companion series written by "Howie" one of the characters from "Howliday Inn," and that series is incredibly cute and funny.ReplyDelete
I loved this book...and when I taught I read it aloud to my second graders...I love Chester!!!ReplyDelete
This was the first book I ever read on my own as a kindergartener! I read all the sequels, but they kind of blur together in my mind, so I can't say if they're better or worse or anything. Fun books, though!ReplyDelete
I haven't read them in years, but I loved them all as a kid. I loved the clever names too like Howliday Inn and The Celery Stalks at Midnight! So glad your son is enjoying them!ReplyDelete
Ticia ... I really need to check those out, too! Thanks for the recommendation!ReplyDelete
Patty ... Me too!! I can't wait to read the sequels!
heidenkind ... Wow! Kindergarten?!? That's impressive!!
lisa :) ... I love the play on words as well! So cute!!!
Haven't read these, but you can't go wrong with a vampire rabbit! Sound like fun books!ReplyDelete
I love Bunnicula! We've read several of the sequels too.I think Bunnicula meets Edgar Allan Crow sparked my daughter's interest in Poe's stories and poems.ReplyDelete
Alexia561 ... So far, they are!ReplyDelete
Carol ... Oh, I have not yet heard of that one! I'm definitely interested. I LOVE Poe!!
I'm so glad that this one held up. I was worried because I loved it so much when I read it as a kid. Not only did Z enjoy it but I did again too!ReplyDelete
Kristen M. ... I completely agree about it holding up! I had never read the sequels, so I'm looking forward to exploring them with my son and hope that they are just as enjoyable!ReplyDelete
