About the Book and Author
To celebrate the 40th Birthday of this bestselling classic a new edition with a striking metallic blood-red cover has been published by Scholastic. This book contains the first two stories of the original Bunnicula series by Deborah and James Howe.
The first is about Harold the dog and Chester the cat who must find out the truth about the newest pet in the Monroe household, a suspicious-looking bunny with unusual habits – and fangs! – before it’s too late.
In the second story, the Monroes have gone on vacation, leaving Harold and Chester at Chateau Bow-Wow. On the animals’ first night there, the silence is pierced by mysterious cries in the dark, and Chester becomes convinced there are werewolves afoot. Soon animals start disappearing! Is it time for Harold and Chester to check out?
I give this book a 5 star rating because the authors' writing is amazing, hilarious and imaginative
Bunnicula is a horror story with lots of surprises, humour, sadness and even a murder. It is about a family who finds a bunny rabbit while watching a Dracula film and he comes to live with them. He sleeps
peacefully in the daytime but at night he sucks the juices out of vegetables to make them white because…..he is a terrifying vampire.
I like both stories in the book because the authors made the storyline sound exciting. The book made me laugh a lot. For example, when the Monroe family went on holiday Harold and Chester were sent to a place called Chateau Bow-Wow. This book was funnier than I thought it would be. I wasn’t expecting this from a scary book. There was nothing that I disliked about the book. It was also great timing to read at Halloween!
I would recommend this to a young reader who likes scary stories. I give this book a 5 star rating because the authors’ writing is amazing, hilarious and imaginative.
