Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe

genre: children's literature

I remember hearing about this little "vampire" bunny when I was a kid, but the story never interested me. Shame on me, because I read it outloud to my two little boys this past week and had a ball. Our narrator is the loyal, if not slightly blustering, dog Harold. When their family discovers a WHITE tomato, Harold's scheming cat-friend Chester is convinced that the family's new bunny is the culprit. A juice sucking BUNNY? That is just funny, in fact, my boys were in hysterics more than once, thanks to Chester's hair-brained plans to rescue the family from their fang-toothed pet.

I can see why this one is a classic, my boys were always begging for more. I think we'll search out more books in this charming and clever series.
