Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Horace Mann Family Reading Challenge | 2/16/2014

    " This book is about a rabbit that is a Dracula that sucks juice instead of blood. GY. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 2/8/2014

    " I loved the Bunnicula books, I read them with my son when he was little. Very funny, we laughed a lot. Suspense geared toward children. It was great! Good memories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacquelyn Sylvan | 2/8/2014

    " Not really sure why these are on the New Release list, since I read these when I was in fourth or fifth grade (I'm 31 now). These are great books, though, for a kid who loves animals and spooky stories! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda | 1/24/2014

    " I loved this book. If you like the movie Milo and Otis, you will like this book. There are some plays on words. A good read for any 1st - 3rd grade. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 1/23/2014

    " I vaguely recall reading the first book in the bunnicula series. I remember enjoying it, and I read this one years later and it didn't feel like much of a story- not enough mystery and not dark enough, even if it is a kid's book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshua Gross | 1/5/2014

    " I owned this one as a kid, so I remember reading this one more often than the others. However, it's clear why Howliday Inn was my favorite. This one was kind of all over the place, and really just focused on slapstick and puns. Howie was as unnecessary to the series as Scrappy Doo was to Scooby-Doo, but I was glad Chester expanded on something that had been bothering me since the first book: Who cares if Bunnicula sucks the juices out of vegetables? Where's the harm in that? So I'm glad Chester came up with something to do with that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charisma | 12/28/2013

    " Bunnicula's gone from his cage and only Chester knows what really is going on. Another one of the funny stories about Chester (the cat), Harold (the dog), Bunnicula (the rabbit) and Howie (the dachshund puppy). Love the ideas that come to Chester's mind. He's never boring to be around. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Katz | 12/16/2013

    " I love these books. The personalities of the characters provide so many out-loud chuckles that I end the book feeling I've had a little vacation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 11/28/2013

    " Aside from having the greatest title ever, this book continues the fun of the series. My boys loved that addition of Howie to the main cast and a good time was had by all. When this series is over, I'll miss reading Chester and Harold. They've been fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fran | 11/23/2013

    " Third part in the Bunnicula series - cute, not quite as engrossing as the first two. Still great for children and animal lovers "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 11/16/2013

    " I loved the Bunnicula book series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Probiere | 11/7/2013

    " So sue me, I have a soft spot for Bunnicula. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 11/7/2013

    " These books by Mr. Howe are fantastic. If I learned anything, it's that I now understand why dogs don't talk (ha) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 10/28/2013

    " I loved this series as a child. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 10/27/2013

    " Read this as a kid and thought it would be fun to buzz through it again. Silly but fun. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richelle | 8/22/2013

    " Bunnicula is back! Finally he escapes his cage and quits drinking vegetable smoothies at the Monroes'. Now he's out sinking his fangs into the neighborhood's vegetable gardens. My kids can't get enough of Bunnicula. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bracken | 7/4/2013

    " Maybe it is the glorified perception of the books from my childhood, but I remember the Bunnicula books being more interesting than they are now. CS at M is better than Howliday Inn, but is not as good as I'd have wished after reading Bunnicula. My little girls enjoyed it, and that is what matters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 5/13/2013

    " It took my child-self a long time to puzzle out this wordplay. My adult-self thinks it's hilar. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 4/28/2013

    " Still very cute, but it lacks the humour and edge of the first in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hpboy13 | 9/13/2012

    " Funny and a bit creepy, one of my favorite books as a child! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaimie | 6/6/2012

    " mind you, this is based on my memory of reading it sometime in the 80s. I loved bunnicula! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christa | 1/22/2012

    " The family goes camping. The best line is when Howie answers a survey for dog food, yet they don't have a phone. Less about the bunny by this point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 12/9/2011

    " We continued our reading with the whole series. I love Howie and Chester and Harold. The kids think these are just the right amount of intrique and suspense, while not being too scary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie Stone | 9/26/2011

    " I love the old Bunnicula series. I can't wait to read them to my grandkids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista | 6/5/2011

    " James Howe has a hilarious writing style that any elementary-school aged child will love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristine McGuire | 5/24/2011

    " This is probably my favorite of the Bunnicula series. The tongue in cheek way the story unfolds has me laughing throughout. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 The Styling Librarian | 5/10/2011

    " Hilarious characters frightened by vegetables turning into zombies... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 3/31/2011

    " I love the title even if the story is a little thin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 1/22/2011

    " I have absolutely no recollection of the plot, but I know I read this several times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 1/6/2011

    " very punny. love that ridiculous cat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kenzie | 12/1/2010

    " This is a cute story and is an easy read about a vampire bunny sneaking food from the fridge. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy Ann | 9/3/2010

    " book on how we form opinions of others "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laramort | 9/23/2009

    " I never read this series as a child, but man vampire vegetables! It doesn't get much better than this. Anyone who has ever owned a dog and a cat can appreciate the personalities in these books. Very funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 9/18/2009

    " I loved Bunnicula when I was little and was so happy when I stumbled upon the audio book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 7/14/2009

    " man, i read these so long ago i barely remember them... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christa | 12/14/2008

    " Okay so this popped up when I typed in Midnight's Children and I needed to review it because the Bunnicula stories were some of my favorites when I was little. I highly recommend it to anyone with children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 10/11/2007

    " i read all 3 as a kid, they're light hearted and just slightly spooky, fun. will be on my kids shelf eventually i bet. :) "
