I read this book when I was young, and now I read it with my kids! A great, funny mystery suitable for kids ages 7 - 10. Hilarious point of view from a dog and cat, with a vegetable-juice-sucking bunny.
I am a librarian in an elementary school library. This series is a favorite among the kids, better for kids that are reading chapter books. As a matter of fact they a liked so much, I often have kids placing these books on hold so that they are sure to get a turn reading it because they are often checked out and that part of the shelf is usually empty.
It was just as good as a grown up! I read this one with my husband, a chapter every night so he could appreciate the story before I started reading it to our first baby. A light-hearted, funny read from the dog's point of view. An enjoyable read for all ages.

The first book in a wonderful series by Deborah and James Howe. This book is particularly suited for ages 8 to 10 years old and is a good book for those just starting to read chapter books. The plot is hilarious. The cat and dog try to tell their human family that the new pet is a vampire bunny. Lots of play on words and references to vampires. A great book to read with your child.
