This review is from 2004 Since it s Halloween, I thought I d talk about something frightening Bunnies Vampire bunnies Ninja vampire bunnies Okay, so, maybe not that ninja part But definitely vampire bunnies one in particular.So, my roommate Mr I m not in there from the other week was recently given a collection of young adult books as a birthday present Most of the stack didn t interest me, but I did notice one specific volume in the pile I remember reading Bunnicula as a child, and it very well [...]
Hear me out there is no Bunnicula This is about the cat.His name is Chester He has schemes and a vivid imagination, as cats do He s steeped in Gothic literature Here s my Gothic Drinking Game if you need a refresher, and notice how Bunnicula will get you drunk Nasty weather Fainting in our first hint that Bunnicula may not be the villain, he is usually the fainter Creepy noises Scary eyes And the most important thing a relative turns out to be the surprise villain Here s what we know the Monroes [...]
It s only month 2 of the books that made me love reading challenge, and already, I m noticing a pattern Last month, I re reviewed Harold and the Purple Crayon, a book that has had a profound influence on my life I freely attribute my creativity to the inspiration I received from this happy little picture book, and now I realize that this month s book, Bunnicula, has had an equally large impact on my life and personality.Bunnicula made me smart Seriously, it did.Yes, I m raising serious nature vs [...]
A blast from my past that is still epic to this day One of my first horror reads, too Bunnicula and My Teacher is an Alien are why I started writing stories when I was younger I read those two books and thought, Hey, I can do this The rest is history.In summation Find it Read it Pass it down through the generations.Final Judgment Highly recommended for all ages.
Bunnicula, written by Harold the dog and starring Chester the cat, was well received by my kids on a recent trip north It was short, silly, and featured hi jinks of the best kind Chester is one high brow cat Extremely well read and quite impressed with himself, he makes frequent literary references and he sees no reason to dumb down his language for Harold and as a parent, I loved that I chuckled at his barbs and sarcastic comments, as well as his paranoid ideas about the bunny Chester stole the [...]
Hilarious and delightful read I m a sucker for books narrated by animals With a Dracula theme and a snarky cat, how can you lose
Just read this novel with my elementary book club The kids found the idea of a vampire bunny hysterical This book s popularity has been making a comeback lately with all of the vampire hype in recent years And I must say, my favorite part of the entire novel may be the Editor s Note at the beginning.
I first met Chester and Harold as a kid and fell in love with them If you haven t encountered these two yet, let me introduce you Chester is a highly educated cat with a vivid imagination One of his delights is to listen to his owner, a college English professor, practice class lectures He s widely read, and especially favors Edgar Allen Poe Harold isn t quite as intellectual as Chester, but he does have a good deal common sense He s also the one who wrote and delivered the first manuscript of [...]
I had completely forgotten about reading this book as a child until a conversation with my best friend likening someone to a bunny with red eyes and fangs Whereupon she said, wait, I m pretty sure that s actually a book isn t it She looked it up and yes, yes it was BUNNICULA is one of those children s books that I love Literary references and large vocabulary words interwoven into an adorable little story Although I had forgotten about this book, not hard to do when you book carnivore like I do, [...]
Bunnicula is hilarious I loved it during the 5th grade when I read it over the summer, and nearly everyone I know enjoys it for its witty humor and quirky characters.
Charming and Funny.The Monroes kids didn t know what special rabbit they brought home.Necesitaba con urgencia algo livianito con todas las tragedias pasando en The Fifht Season y esto fue justo lo que necesitaba A pesar del titulo, no crean un intento de horror para ni os segun dice, esta pensado para 8 a os para arriba P , sino que es m s bien jocoso y escrito con mucho ingenio.Cualquier cosa que me haga reir, tiene mucho valor para m He s a vampire Chester snarled Today, vegetables Tomorrow t [...]
Howard the Dog and Chester the Cat enjoy living with their humans Harold especially likes Toby who enjoys feasts that he shares with Harold So when the family brings home a bunny they name Bunnicula, it isn t surprising that Harold and Chester are a bit jealous of the attention the family focuses on Bunnicula But Chester s jealousy soon turns into the suspicion that Bunnicula is a vampire He sets out to prove it no matter what the cost Although Bunnicula is aimed at readers ages 8 12, it is a de [...]
I remember hearing about this little vampire bunny when I was a kid, but the story never interested me Shame on me, because I read it outloud to my two little boys this past week and had a ball Our narrator is the loyal, if not slightly blustering, dog Harold When their family discovers a WHITE tomato, Harold s scheming cat friend Chester is convinced that the family s new bunny is the culprit A juice sucking BUNNY That is just funny, in fact, my boys were in hysterics than once, thanks to Ches [...]
Introduced this book to my 4th grade class Started out with overhead transparencies of Bela Lugosi as Dracula, and discussed common held beliefs about vampires After having the students complete a Vampire Worksheet, we dove into chapter 1, pausing for exciting vocabulary words.A fun, fun read Great for those kids who have a dry sense of humor They ll appreciate the jokes The rest enjoy reading about pets that are smarter than or, at least as smart as their humans.
What makes a classic middle grade book a classic I know I ve reviewed some here, such as Watership Down, James and the Giant Peach, The Giver, and Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing But what makes those books classics and new books, such as Savvy by Ingrid Law, likely to be but not yet classics I don t really know, but I think time has something to do with it, which is a crappy deal for writers Classics are books that have endured over a particular period of time and if you re an author hoping yo [...]
Bunnicula is one of my all time favorite kids books I checked out this twentieth anniversary edition because it includes an almost 60 page appendix, Writing Bunnicula The Story Behind the Story Ah, this is perfect to read by the window while I sip my coffee this morning, I thought James Howe tells the story of meeting his wife and love of his life, Deborah They thought they wanted to be actors In headshots, Deborah looked like a young Linda Lavin James, with his geekier than Bill Gates but with [...]
Harold the dog and Chester the cat enjoy intelligent conversation, warm milk, and the occasional belly rub at the hands of their human family, the Monroe s.Their quiet lives are turned inside out when the Monroe family brings home a small, white bunny with red eyes and a hand written note in an unknown language tied about his neck The family names him Bunnicula.Suspicions rise when vegetables begin to turn up white and drained of juice.Chester, with the help of Harold, derives a plan to uncover [...]
You know those books that you remember very fondly from childhood and then you go back and read them as an adult and you re like oh no, it s awful and boring now WELL THIS ISN T ONE OF THOSE BOOKS This was every bit as hilarious and entertaining as it was when I read it 18 years ago and I m so happy I decided to revisit it Definitely a classic.
Such a cute little story Perfect for young readers who like a bit of a darker tale without being too scary Can t wait to read the rest of the series with my son.
It s been many years since I read this book and I m not sure if I actually read it myself or had it read to me.My memories about the story were a bit different from what I experienced now re hearing it my brother read it to me while I drove him around Northern Minnesota and North Dakota I remember feeling a bit frightened the first time Of course I was a child when I first heard it, but somehow I remembered it being a lot chilling I also remember it being a bit longer, but I suppose just as th [...]
I love my used bookstore I can t tell you how much I adore it Because outside in the freebie pile was a torn and tattered copy of Bunnicula I was ecstatic I haven t read Bunnicula since I was in Middle School My friend, Krena, got to go to all the cool places Like bookstores and record shops and over the bridge way than me I mainly got my books from the library and grocery stores.But why am I telling you this Because it was Krena who showed me Bunnicula She told me I could read it after her and [...]
I remember reading this book as a child and loving it Recently, I was cleaning out things from when I taught fifth grade and my daughter saw the book and wanted to read it because she loves animals Always eager to introduce her to my favorite books and encourage her love of reading, we sat down and began reading right away I must admit that from an adult viewpoint the book wasn t that great kind of hokey and bland Some of the comments though about the literature the cat was reading made me chuck [...]
I had a bizarre obsession with this book as a diminutive child There is a vague remembrance of myself dancing menacingly in an airport while my father s friend improvised at my behest a song on the topic on his guitar It is unfortunate that the book was not written by a darker and stranger writer, for my love of the concept didn t really translate to the simple silliness of the books themselves.Of course, I didn t want something evil and frightening, but a bit of Carroll s disturbance would not [...]
I read this to my two youngest daughters and we thought it was hilarious There were many laugh out loud moments for all of us We look forward to continuing with the adventures of Harold the dog, Chester the cat, and Bunnicula the vampire rabbit.
This book series was my childhood XD
By far my favorite book as a kid Rivaled only by Green Eggs and Ham I credit this book for introducing me to vampires.
Bunnicula is a classic scary story for kids When the Monroe family finds a strange bunny in a theater showing Dracula, their cat, Chester, and dog, Harold, decide to investigate the aptly named Bunnicula As if the bunny s strange markings and creepy red eyes weren tenough, weird things start happening around him, like vegetables appearing completely drained of their juice The lovably dim Harold andtoo smart for his own good Chester must figure out if Bunnicula really is a bunny creature of the n [...]
