Author Info
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.
From the Publisher
Editors Note THIS book is written by Harold. His full time occupation is dog. He lives with Mr. and Mrs. X (here called Monroe) and their sons Toby and Pete. Also sharing the home are a cat named Chester and a rabbit named Bunnicula. It is because of Bunnicula that Harold turned to writing. Someone had to tell the full story of what happened in the Monroe household after the rabbit arrived.It all began when the Monroes went to see the movie Dracula At the theater Toby found something on his seatÃ'a baby rabbit that he took home and named Bunnicula. It proved to be an apt name, at least as far as Chester was concerned. A well-read and observant cat, he soon decided that there was something odd about the newcomer. For one thing he seemed to have fangs. And the odd markings on his back looked a little like a cape. Furthermore, Bunnicula slept from sunup to sundown. He was awake only at night.When the family started funding white vegetables, drained dry, with two fang marks in them, Chester was sure Bunnicula was a vampire. But what to do about it. None of the family seemed to grasp the trouble, and Chester's hilarious hints were totally misunderstood.Was Bunnicula really a vampire? Only Bunnicula knows for sure. But the story of Chester's suspicions and their consequences makes uproarious reading.
Annotation 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.
