[EDITOR'S NOTE]||The book you are about to read was brought to my attention in a most unusual way. One Friday afternoon, just before closing time, I heard a scratching sound at the front door of my office. When I opened the door, there before me stood a sad-eyed, droopy-eared dog carrying a large, plain envelope in his mouth. (from the first line)

From the Publisher:
Harold, the Monroes' dog, tells of Chester the cat's suspicions that the baby rabbit that one of the Monroe boys finds in the movie theater, takes home, and names Bunnicula is a vampire.
Annotation:
Bunnicula--the bunny the Monroes find at the movie theater the night they go to see DRACULA--looks like an ordinary bunny to Harold the dog. Chester the cat, however, thinks there is something odd about him, especially when all the vegetables in the house have had all their juices sucked out of them and appear have fang marks in them.This is the first in a series of books that feature Harold, Chester, and their friends.Harold the dog and Chester the cat are the contented pets of the kind Monroe family. Their life is gentle and quite--until the Monroes bring home a new pet, a rabbit they've named Bunnicula because they found it at the local movie theater while watching a screening of DRACULA. Bunnicula looks like your run-of-the-mill bunny to Harold, but Chester insists that Bunnicula has fangs, and the black markings on his white fur make it look like he's wearing a cape. Then something strange starts happening--all the vegetables in the Monroe house are suddenly dry and shriveled, as if they've had all their juices sucked out of them. And could those be fang marks? Is Bunnicula really a vampire rabbit? This is the first in a series of popular books that feature the scary/funny adventures of Harold and Chester. Occasional B&W illustrations accompany the text.
Author Bio
James Howe
James Howe's career as a writer began in grade school when he wrote and edited a newsletter, "The Gory Gazette," for his classmates and friends. Although he loved writing, Howe's original career goal was to be an actor. After graduating from Boston University, he moved to New York City with his wife, Deborah, to pursue acting jobs. The couple began writing the book BUNNICULA in 1977, not realizing that Howe was beginning a new career as a children's writer. Since Deborah Howe's death in 1978, James Howe has written several sequels to their original work, as well as picture books, novels, and nonfiction.

Praise

"The Howes' stylish, exuberant make-believe is the product of unreined imagination and a glinting sense of humor."

New York Times
"This mystery-comedy is sure to delight."
