Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The latest Bunnicula picture book sustains that series' well-known comedy-of-errors combination of slapstick and intrigue. Once again the other animals in the Monroe household suspect impending danger from the pet rabbit, Bunnicula, whom they are convinced is a vampire. This time, thanks to Chester the cat (who maintains his impervious air of omniscience by making up what he doesn't know), Harold the dog (our narrator) and Howie the dachshund puppy believe that Bunnicula is in league with a visiting magician. When they learn that The Amazing Karlovsky plans to pull Bunnicula out of a hat during a show at the local school, they are sure that a horde of vampire bunnies will be loosed upon the audience. Can unspeakable horror be averted? Howe garnishes his story with winsome puns and indulgent irony before he unveils the requisite logical explanation. Daniel, who illustrated two Bunnicula middle readers, contributes watercolor, gouache and colored-pencil art; his composition, lighting and perspectives are theatrically exaggerated, especially in comparison with Leslie Morrill's rather staid pictures for Howe's 1991 Creepy-Crawly Birthday . The piece de resistance: a pull-out magic trick, clearly explained and easily executed. Ages 5-up.

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4–The upcoming appearance of the Amazing Karlovsky at Toby's school could be trouble. Chester the skeptical cat is sure that the magician is from Transylvania, and he suspects that everyone is in for an avalanche of vampire bunnies pulled out of hats. So Chester; the gullible puppy, Howie; and Harold the dog form a plan involving garlic pizza and the ever-enigmatic Bunnicula. This easy chapter book covers the basic facts older readers may know about this rabbit in a format that is suitable for proficient second and third graders. Mack's cheerful acrylics reflect the action but don't get in the way. An additional purchase where a fan base exists.–Susan Hepler, formerly at Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA

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.

This episode from the Bunnicula tales is perfect for children just beginning to read chapter books. My daughter is in first grade and loves it. It is a "ready-to-read" text which is more difficult to find in local stores unlike the regular Bunnicula novels.

The story involes a magician who comes to town and uses a rabbit that has the same markings as the Monroe's "vampire bunny." The cat, dog, and smaller Dacshund pets will save the day...

I difinitely recommend it for K-3rd grade readers.

This Level 3 ready-to-read primer packs rich vocabulary around a zany story with longer chapters for kids at the Level 3 reading level. A magician is coming to town and Toby can't wait - but his dog and cat pals aren't so enthusiastic: they know the power of the wizard, who can even pull a rabbit out of a hat. What if that bunny is Bunnicula? And what if there's more than one in that hat? Hilarious mis-adventures evolve.

If your child loves Bunnicula, they'll love this book too! This was priced better than the local well-known-name book store. My 7 yr old loved it.

My daughter, who loves the "Bunnicula and Friends" series loves this installment. The story flows naturally and the pacing is good. Not my favorite in the series, but my daughter loves it, which is really all that matters.
