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

Format: Hardcover
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.

My son is a huge fan of the Bunnicula series. He has read them all several times. He started reading them in 4th grade. He is in middle school now and still enjoys the adventures of Bunnicula and his friends. It's a great series.

Little boys love these books. Big ones too even though they don't like to admit it. This series encourages kids with difficulty to stick with it and finish something amusing. My son says that this one is not as good as some of the earlier ones.

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.

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 have 4 kids and they all have read this series and enjoyed them very much. My two younger children still have a books in the entire series to finish up but for the most part we have had all of them in our house.

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.

Format: Paperback
Pete, the eldest of the Monroe boys, has won an essay contest for describing why the Fleshcrawlers book series grosses him out the most, and now the author of the series, M.T. Graves, will be visiting his school. What's even more exciting is that, instead of staying at a hotel like he normally would, Mr. Graves has asked to stay with the Monroes, all so he could meet their most unusual pets.

The entire family works hard to prepare for their guest, especially Howie the puppy, who is as big a fan of the Fleshcrawlers series as Pete. Chester the cat, however, does not feel as excited about this as everyone else. He's convinced that M.T. Graves has some nasty things in store, since all of his stories involve changing animals into horrible things. Why else would he have made all of these strange requests, like having the vampire bunny, Bunnicula, stay in his room, and dressing-less salad left by his bed at night? Why did he specifically say he wanted to meet the pets?

A flock of crows blankets the Monroe house when their strange guest arrives, and it's all downhill from there. Is the author's corvine pet, Edgar Allan Crow, in league with the leader of the flock, and what does M.T. Graves plan to do with Bunnicula?

It's up to Chester, Harold, and Howie to stop them and save their friend.

I was surprised and sad to find that this is the last planned book in the BUNNICULA series. The final book manages to be just as enjoyable as the first--true to the characters and the tone of this long-loved series.
