Even after so many years, and many repeated readings, 'Bunnicula' is still a pleasure to read. This wasn't my introduction to Harold and Chester, 'Howliday Inn' has that distinction, but it does set things up nicely for their later adventures and establishes the strange nature of the titular rabbit.

That said, this book is a little too slim to really get into, and just doesn't have enough substance on its own to make a lasting impression. Thankfully, there's loads of sequels, four coming out in time for me to enjoy while still young enough to not care about the nit-picky sort of things that only adults care about in children's books.

The best thing about this book are the illustrations, realistic pen and ink that nevertheless convey the ridiculous expressions on Chester's face as he goes about trying to warn the family of the dangerous tendencies of the newly arrived Bunnicula. I know 'Howliday Inn' had a different illustrator, but I'm too lazy right now to see if that continued. They add the right sense of drama to the story that Harold doesn't quite get right. But that's OK, after all, this is the dog's first book effort. He gets better.

It has been a very long time since I have read this book, and last week I just read it for the first time in 20 years with my children. I honestly forgot the book entirely. I like that the story is written by the dog, though at the beginning he sounds very intelligent, but later with Chester he doesn't seem very smart at all. I was surprised at how little story/events there are in the book. Some of the words were a little obscure for my 6 and 7 year old, but I like that because that is how you learn them! It wasn't quite as exciting for the girls as say, Junie B. Jones, but they did like that it was about animals. And they like the character Bunnicula himself. ( )

It’s an adorable children’s book! Definitely a little dated but still very enjoyable. ( )

This book, takes you through a mystery about vegetables that have been "bitten" Trying to find out who the biter is allows students to gather information and draw conclusion. This story is fun, engaging, and suspenseful for children ( )

Bunnicula is a classic that shows no signs of becoming dated.
