Book Summary: HARE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW
Bunnicula is missing! Chester is convinced all the world's vegetables are in danger of being drained of their life juices and turned into zombies. Soon he has Harold and Howie running around sticking toothpicks through hearts of lettuce and any other veggie in sight. Of course, Chester has been known to be wrong before...but you can never be too careful when there's a vampire bunny at large!
Book Review: Another really great addition to the series.
In this book, we find our ever-favorite rabbit has returned. This time there is a new addition to the group. A young pup named Howie whom calls Harold "Uncle" and has latched onto Chester calling him "Pop" much to the chagrin of the cat. One day, Bunnicula disappears and vegetables are being found drained of their juices and turned white. Chester believes that Bunnicula is trying to gather minions to take over the world. Armed with toothpicks as stakes, the three set out to stop Bunnicula from gathering an army.
I swear this one was hilarious. I think it is time to take any sort of gothic novels or Stephen King books that cat comes up with sorts of theories that pull poor Harold and Howie into them. I am surprised that Harold has not put a stop to any of Chester's crazy antics and theories. I know he has tried to get Chester to believe that Bunnicula is not always evil but he has never gone out of his way to show that Chester that his crazy theories are just that - theories - and reading into them only causes trouble.
And Howie is a little nice addition to the group. I am really surprised that Chester has allowed him to call him "Pops" and latched himself to him. I can only surmise that somewhere deep within Chester that he does have a soft spot for the pup.
I wish this series had been around when I was a little girl because I would have latched onto it the moment it was in my hands. I like this series but I think the younger me would have loved it more than anything.
