I loved the entire series of these books, and I read them before I even had children. Now my children have loved them, too.

I read this whole series of books at about 12 years old. I've just reread them at age 32...I still laughed out loud repeatedly!

When I was in the fourth grade, my teacher sat in a rocking chair every afternoon and we sat in a circle at her feet and she read us this great book. I thought that my memories of being read to by a beloved teacher may have clouded my judgement about this book but a friend bought me a copy as a gift a few years ago and I still love it. It's clever and delightful.

This is probably the funniest childrens book my son and I have ever read. A delightful, well thought out story, as told from the pets perspective. We laughed out loud through the whole story and were sad to see it end. A real joy to read something that is out of the ordinary again.

This was a book that I just picked up at a used book sale and adore this book. I remember when I read it to my child and we laughed and laughed at the characters in this book. While reading this book I ascribed certain voices to each character and tried to stay in character while reading this entertaining and darling book for children ages 6 to 12 years old.
Its a classic and a must read. I shall reread it to my family again just for the humor and antics of these hilarious characters. I give this book a 5 for childrens books.

An adorable book that isn't just for children, the tale of Bunnicula will touch the Dracula-fan in any reader, with not a little monty python-esque humor mixed in.

Bunnicula was a fun and witty book. Not in the least bit scary. We read it aloud and the whole family enjoyed it. Plenty of laughs!

This immensely popular children's story is told from the point of view of a dog named Harold. It all starts when Harold's human family, the Monroes, goes to see the movie Dracula, and young Toby accidentally sits on a baby rabbit wrapped in a bundle on his seat. How could the family help but take the rabbit home and name it Bunnicula? Chester, the literate, sensitive, and keenly observant family cat, soon decides there is something weird about this rabbit. Pointy fangs, the appearance of a cape, black-and-white coloring, nocturnal habits it sure seemed like he was a vampire bunny. When the family finds a white tomato in the kitchen, sucked dry and colorless, well Chester becomes distraught and fears for the safety of the family. "Today, vegetables. Tomorrow the world!" he warns Harold. But when Chester tries to make his fears known to the Monroes, he is completely misunderstood, and the results are truly hilarious. Is Bunnicula really a vampire bunny? We can't say. But any child who has ever let his or her imagination run a little wild will love Deborah and James Howe's funny, fast-paced "rabbit-tale of mystery." (Ages 9 to 12)--
