‘Bunnicula’ takes an old horror premise and wraps it in fur. The book is cleverly written with compelling characters. The unique perspective of Harold X, who is in fact a dog, offers a great view of the chaos that ensues. Chester, Harold’s best friend who is a cat, is a great addition to the story, and it is he that causes the most trouble while trying to stop the vampire bunny, while Bunnicula, the new pet rabbit, causes only minor trouble.
This is an entertaining read that will delight children. I would suggest it to anybody, especially those with pets. Certainly, some of the traits of Harold and Chester are typical in dogs and cats, and the book offers a bite of insight on what might be going through their heads.
