This book was an even quicker read than [book: Return to Howliday Inn], but it was a charming one. It's interesting to see how the family dynamics evolve from book to book, and how much everyone's lives, including the Editor's, change. There's a note of finality to the book, a looming knowledge that the end may indeed be near. Seeing how even the story being read to Harold in the beginning is "The Final Problem" you go in knowing disaster will happen before the end.

Chester is at it again. Bunnicula is getting ill, and doesn't seem to be getting better. Chester assures Harold and Howie that he's "taking care of it" and Harold has had enough. Chester may be his friend, but so is Bunnicula, and too long he's gone along with the various plans to destroy the vampire rabbit. It's time for him to stand up for what he knows is right - but at what cost?

This book continues the somewhat darker themes that were first established in [book: Return to Howliday Inn]. While there are still plenty of laughs, the subject matter does tend to be darker than what I expected, and the moral questions a bit more potent still. I enjoyed it immensely, though ultimately I wish it was longer. Just can't get enough of these characters. ( )

Took a little effort to get into this one because Chester was being awful again and depriving Bunnicula of food for an extended period of time. However, once it got going I appreciated Harold putting his foot down and being an active force in this book. (Sometimes he's really just commenting on what everyone else is doing). Also liked the book being about Bunnicula again. I realize it's hard to write a book about a bunny who doesn't do much and doesn't talk like the other animals, but I think coming up with creative ways to do that in each book might've enriched the series. Anyway, I liked the slightly more adult themes of the book (doing what's right in spite of a friendship) and thought the plot was solid. ( )

Bunnicula is probably one of the most precious characters I've seen in children's book. He doesn't say or do anything, yet he's so well portrayed that I am hardcore in love with him I really hope Howe eventually does a book from Bunnicula's perspective.
Harold is an interesting character, though I find myself much more drawn to Howie (probably because I read Tales from the House of Bunnicula before this book). Chester is just obnoxious for the most part, though. ( )

This book is about a rabbit but Is not a rabbit but a vampire. He is trying to see If the rabbit is a mean one or a nice one. So now Chester needs a vet to calm the vampire bunny. But now he is following the rabbit to prove that he is still a bed rabbit ( )

After the Monroe family found Bunnicula in the movie theater, and all of the frenzy that came along with him, when they brought him home and things died down, normal is how Harold would describe their home. But just like what happened in the Adventures of Sherlock, Harold soon finds out that anything is subject to change. And tons of changes come his way.

Bunnicula seems to have lost all of "the sparkle in his eyes" and his energy whenever Toby and Pete take him out of his cage to play. Although oblivious at first, Harold begins to worry that something is wrong with Bunnicula. Could he be sick?

Chester knows for certain that it has nothing to do with being sick; he is set on Bunnicula acting this way because he wants to cause trouble. Chester saw what Bunnicula had done before... sucking up all of the juices from the vegetables! Of course, Chester doesn't want Bunnicula to strike again, so his infamous plans are put into action.

On the side, the Monroe family is trying to save the movie theater, where they found Bunnicula, from being torn down, since it's a landmark in Centerville. Ironically, though, the last movie they will be playing is Dracula. Could this possibly have anything to do with why Bunnicula is acting weird?

It's up to Harold and Howie to crack the case, and to make sure Chester doesn't go too far -- or it just might be the end!

BUNNICULA STRIKES AGAIN! is a very entertaining sequel to the hit BUNNICULA. Once again, Harold writes and narrates the story, making the tale even more humorous. Fans of the first book will definitely want to sink their teeth into this one, especially if they want to know what Bunnicula and even Chester are up to now. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689814623, Paperback)

It's happening again. The Monroes's kitchen is littered with the remains of vegetables, drained of all color. To Chester, it's obvious: Bunnicula, the vampire rabbit, is up to his old tricks.

But Harold is more frightened for Bunnicula than of him. The poor bunny doesn't look too good. Is he sick? Or just unhappy? Or has Chester finally gone too far in his attempt to make the world safe for veggies?

One thing's for sure: Harold isn't going to let anything bad happen to his long-eared pal -- even if it means leaving the comfort of his home, losing his best friend, and risking his own life. And if he fails -- could this be the end of Bunnicula?

Don't miss any of the adventures of Harold, Chester, Howie, and the vampire bunny, Bunnicula!
