Bunnicula by James Howe.
Reviewed by Joie
The latest horror is not a monster story like Frankenstein, nor a love story featuring Godzilla and King Kong. It resides in something you see nearly everyday in you daily household. A threat that would become a bunny's biggest scare. It is a tomato.
In the vampire story Bunnicula, a tomato turned white is the cause for distress in the Monroe household. Theories circle around from human to cat, while the keeper of these events finds that his nearby pet buddies are becoming stranger and stranger. Harold, a dog reporter, must determine to figure out exactly what is up with their new friend, a vampire bunny from the movies. With all the chaos descending on the household, who knows what the bunny might do?
The book was a very good read for all ages. The narrator is a likable, typical dog who allows kids to see what a household might be from a dog's point of view. The curious air that surrounds the bunny brought from the movie theater only adds to the excitement and quirkiness of the pets in the Monroe family. A entertaining read for a nice afternoon, it is light and good for kids. The entertainment of the detective work that that most children only pretend to do keeps everyone interested and laughing at a certain cat's work.Posted by at October 9, 2009 02:25 PM
