Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–7—In this seventh adventure featuring the veggie-vampire and his cohorts, the Monroe family is playing host to M. T. Graves, creator of the gruesome, popular "FleshCrawlers" series. While Pete and Toby are excited to meet a real-live author, their pets aren't happy about the visitor. First, Graves has brought along Edgar Allan Crow, a strange, silent bird. Furthermore, the yard is suddenly infested with dozens of other crows-squawking, calling, and obviously waiting for something-or someone. Worst of all, M. T. seems to be taking an unhealthy interest in Bunnicula. Chester the cat tries desperately to convince the other pets that Graves intends to use their long-eared friend for some fiendish purpose. Sheepdog Howard isn't persuaded, but then the vampire bunny mysteriously disappears. Can the Monroe pets find their friend in time-and discover what the weird writer is really up to? As always, much of the book's humor comes from the interplay among the animals. Chester's melodramatic imagination sees sinister plots everywhere, while laid-back Howard tries to keep the neurotic cat in balance. Aspiring author Howie, meanwhile, puppy-worships their famous visitor and is continually trying to get writing tips. The writing style is a mixture of chills and chuckles, and the black-and-white pencil drawings are appropriately eerie. Underlying all the fun is a quiet celebration of writing and the power of friendship and inspiration.—Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL

From Booklist

Pete enters a contest and wins a school visit from his favorite author: mysterious M. T. Graves, who writes the FleshCrawlers series. Staying at the Monroes' house with his pet, Edgar Allan Crow, the eccentric writer has some strange requests and his odd behavior gives rise to misgivings among the household's suspicious dogs and conniving cat. Their determined efforts to save the family's pet rabbit, Bunnicula, from an undetermined threat give rise to this entertaining chapter book's dramatic and comical situations. The full-page, shaded pencil drawings are handsome and suitably quirky. An entertaining addition to the long-running Bunnicula series. Carolyn Phelan

More About the Author

James Howe has written more than eighty books in the thirty-plus years he's been writing for young readers. It sometimes confuses people that the author of the humorous Bunnicula series also wrote the dark young adult novel, The Watcher, or such beginning reader series as Pinky and Rex and the E.B. White Read Aloud Award-winning Houndsley and Catina and its sequels. But from the beginning of his career (which came about somewhat by accident after asking himself what kind of vampire a rabbit might make), he has been most interested in letting his imagination take him in whatever direction it cared to. So far, his imagination has led him to picture books, such as I Wish I Were a Butterfly and Brontorina (about a dinosaur who dreams of being a ballerina), mysteries, poetry (in the upcoming Addie on the Inside), and fiction that deals with issues that matter deeply to him. He is especially proud of The Misfits, which inspired national No Name-Calling Week (www.nonamecallingweek.org) and its sequel Totally Joe. He does not know where his imagination will take him in the next thirty-plus years, but he is looking forward to finding out.

Suddenly, Chester knows exactly why M.T. Graves is so interested in all of the Monroe family pets, especially Bunnicula.

Its been twenty seven years since Bunnicula first hopped from the minds and pages of Deborah and James Howe's Bunnicula: A Rabbit- Tale of Mystery and into the popular lexicon. Merely mention the name Bunnicula to any thirty- something and you are bound to get a smile and a laugh as memories of Chester, Harold, Howie and the Bun of Darkness come flooding back. Finally, the rabbit with a V8 addiction is back; every bit as delightful as he was when he first appeared in 1979, and just in time for us to introduce him to our own children.

In the latest book, Pete Monroe has just won a writing contest, and his prize is his favorite author M.T. Graves, writer of the Fleshcrawler Series, coming to visit his school. M.T. Graves has some rather odd requests for his visit; he insists upon staying with the Monroe family, for one. Chester, the family cat, is suspicious of the writer's motives for the visit and, when he learns that something always happens to the pets in the Fleshcrawler books, he soon is seeing omens everywhere.

The voice of Harold, our faithful shaggy narrator, is just as humorous and engaging as he's always been while he guides us through the latest mystery under the Monroe's roof... what are the true motives of the mysterious horror writer M.T. Graves' visit to the Monroe household, and why his eerie fascination with Bunnicula? Why do bad things happen to the pets in his books? Could there be something unnatural afoot? Chester, the paranoid voice of supernatural conspiracy theories, seems to think so, and long- time fans of the Bunnicula series will delight in the feline's investigatory antics, and the inevitable chaos they cause. Howie, the wire- haired dachshund pup is also on- hand again to provide comic relief and to aid Chester in his investigations.

Peter has just won a contest: the prize is a school visit from his idol and the author of the FleshCrawlers series. While Peter's excited, Chester the cat is suspicious: Graves dresses in black, has a silent black crow about him at all times, and Chester knows that in each of Graves' popular books, something bad always happens to the pet... humor again blends with the supernatural in a Bunnicula story both newcomers and old fans of the series will appreciate.

I agree enthusiastically with all the reviewers about this very enjoyable installment in the Bunnicula series.

The thing is, I have always gotten the audio books for my sons to listen to while going to bed at night. We have become addicted to Victor Garber's wonderfully expressive characterizations as the true voices of Howie, Chester and Harold. It's like our old friends don't sound like themselves. Patrick Mulvihill isn't bad but he just doesn't compare very well. His articulation isn't as crisp and the characters' voices are much more similar to each other compared to Mr. Garber's.

I wonder why they changed narrators? Oh, well, my sons still liked it. 5 stars for the story, 3 for the narration.

This is the first Bunnicula book I have read... and it won't be the last. The author has a great style of writing. Even though it is a children's book you cannot tell where the story is going... which makes it unpredictable and great. Highly recommended.

My 11 year old son loves these books. His father used to read them when he was a kid. Now we can pass the tradition down. Thank you.
