This review is from 2004Since it s Halloween I thought I talk about something frightening Bunnies Vampire bunnies Ninja vampire bunnies Okay so maybe not that ninja part But efinitely vampire bunnies one in particularSo 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 the other week was recently given a collection of young adult books as a birthday present Most of the idn t interest me but I Double Action Deputy (Cardwell Ranch: Montana Legacy Book 4) did notice one specific volume in the pile I remember reading Bunnicula as a child and it very well could have been my first genre fiction book ever So intrigued about how I would regard the experience as an adult I satown one evening to give the novel another readI came out of it with two impressions First that is one amazingly fun book Second that is one amazingly short bookOn the second point it turns out that I m older now and I m used to stories that take a little bit longer to tell It s pretty amazing how few words they managed to pack into so many pages It s around a hundred give or take The Alien Corn (The Canadians depending on your edition It s short It has chapters true but they rewell like extended paragraphs I was through the book before I knew what had happenedPart of that however wasue to sheer enjoyment Often times when I look back at things I enjoyed as a child I find that I Academia Nuts displayed an embarrassing lack ofiscerning taste GI Joe or pretty much any cartoon I watched makes a fine example Bunnicula however was a African Literature delightful read both because of how fun it was and because it proves that I at least had good taste in books when I was young Even if my TV habits wereeplorableAnyway about the book itself Aspiring writers take note there are a wealth of lessons to be learned from this humble story First off it has an interesting premise A normal family History of the Niagara Falls Power Company, 1886 1918, Vol 2 of 2: Evolution of Its Central Power Station and Alternating Current System; Construction and Operation discovers a mysterious pet bunny abandoned in a movie theater a bunny that turns out to have belonged to Dracula and how goes outuring the night to hunt vegetables and Afghani and 'AbduhAn Essay on Religious Unbelief and Political Activism in Modern Islam drain their blood Amusing perhaps a bit farcical however the authors manage to mix this potentially ridiculous idea with some solid storytelling The book is told from the viewpoint of the family s petog a creature with a healthy ose of personality and an interesting narrative styleThat means we have both
A Clever Premise A Strong clever premise a strong and a uniue viewpoint Mix with that a solid mystery plot why are these white vegetables appearing around the house and why oes that bunny look so ITS NOT YOUR FAULT downright evil and you have a book that will hold its own against pretty much anything you throw at it I know a lot of modern fantasy novels that could learn a few things from BunniculaSo I recommend that you give the book a read if you haven t already It s fun uick and could probably teach you a few things And if youid read the book as a child it might be an interesting experience to pick it up like I Unfinished Puzzle did and see how your childhood memories compare to your adult observations I haven t read this book in probably 30. It looked like an ordinary bunny to Harold But Harold was aog by profession so his judgement wasn't reliable as he was the first to admit But Chester Harold's good friend and house mate was a very well read cat and he knew the. Ut in the end that s not the story at all As in great Gothic novels like Uncle Silas and Lady Audley s Secret the real villain was inside the house it s Chester the psychopathic cat Jealous of the attention paid to a new pet he frames him as a monster and is barely stopped from murdering him He s abetted by the Data Analytics dog who hides a slavish complicity under his goofyoggishness Horrifyingly there are seuels to Bunnicula Who knows what tortures they ll bring to this poor The Mystery of Risk defenseless bunny A blast from my past that is still epic to thisay 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 Alchemy Arts do this The rest is historyIn summation Find it Read it Pass itown through the generationsFinal Judgment Highly recommended for all ages Another fun time reading a classic and nostalgia filled book to my kidsProbably the best part of the experience was when it came to sharing my progress on Goodreads and the wide array of responses I got Everything from Wow I haven t read this in years I was one of my favorites to WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU READING I mean it is a book about a vampire bunny and if you saw the cover come across your feed and you had never heard of it you might have had a similar shocked reactionI Yo salí del abismo did enjoy reading this to my kids and have enjoyed the fact that they have now consumed three straight books one chapter a night with great enthusiasm However unlike Charlie and the Chocolate factory itid not uite translate to a 5 star read for me as an adult and if I had not been enjoying it along with my kids I might have not enjoyed it uite as much But still a classicOne of my favorite things about this book *Is That It Does Have A Similar *that it The Life of Kitty Storm does have a similar to Dracula in the narration by Harold theog His Aliens Bride Book delivery andiction felt very similar to Harker s letters in Dracula That was a really cool connection and I hope if my kids get to read Dracula some ay they remember BunniculaSo either enjoy a nostalgic horror trip to your childhood or continue to be confused as to why someone would want to read this Either way Bunnicula is not going anywhere in the annals of classic youth literature A sweet little horror book that isn t really a horror book Mel 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
