Bunnicula Meets Edgar Allan ..

Bunnicula Meets Edgar Allan Crow by James Howe

3.5 Nuts One day, many years after I thought the series was over, I found myself standing in a bookstore staring at the cover of Bunnicula #7: BUNNICULA MEETS EDGAR ALLAN CROW. I couldn’t believe it! My favorite  kids series had another book! Of course I bought it immediately. BUNNICULA MEETS EDGAR ALLAN CROW is […]

Bunnicula Strikes Again by J..

Bunnicula Strikes Again by James Howe

3.5 Nuts Of all the BUNNICULA books this supposedly final (another book came along years later) book in the series is probably the most forgettable. Yes, I know, sad right? But of each of the other books in the series I have very specific memories, moments that made me feel this or that emotion. This […]

Return to Howliday Inn by Ja..

Return to Howliday Inn by James Howe

4 Nuts When you think of young readers stories I doubt the first things that come to mind are Citizen Kane and Shakespeare. Nor do you likely think of ventriloquists or classic literature. And yet somehow Howe manages to reference all of these things in his direct sequel to HOWLIDAY INN. RETURN TO HOWLIDAY INN […]

Nighty-Nightmare by James Ho..

Nighty-Nightmare by James Howe

5 Nuts Of all of the Bunnicula stories in the main series and the spin offs this little gem, NIGHTY-NIGHTMARE, is my favorite. All of the Bunnicula books make great Halloween reads for kids but if campfire style scary stories are your thing, this is what you want to read in October. As per usual […]

Bunnicula and Friends Series..

Bunnicula and Friends Series by James Howe and Jeff Mack

If you know anything about me and the books from my childhood I still love to this day, you know that anything Bunnicula related tops that list. Sadly when I was a kid I had no idea these existed, except that I had a few of them in the form of a book of plays. […]

The Celery Stalks at Midnigh..

The Celery Stalks at Midnight by James Howe

  3.5 Nuts My least favorite of the Bunnicula Series, THE CELERY STALKS AT MIDNIGHT is probably one of the cleverer titles in the set. It’s not a bad book, not at all. It’s just not AS good as the rest of the series. The worst of great is still pretty good. This book introduces […]

Howliday Inn by James Howe

Howliday Inn by James Howe

4.5 Nuts When it comes to the Bunnicula books, 2 of my 3 favorites take place at Chateau Bow-Wow, or as Chester calls it, Howliday Inn. There’s something about the boarding house that always appeals to me. Maybe the the cast of characters, more varied than the usual Bunnicula story. Or perhaps the mysteries have […]

Bunnicula by James Howe

Bunnicula by James Howe

3.5 Nuts This book is a classic for me. It defined my childhood reading tastes, I can’t tell you how many times I listened to the audiobook narrated by Victor Garber as a child, laughing at how sarcastic Chester’s voice was rendered on an old fashioned cassette tape. Yeah, I’m old. I remember cassette tapes. Many […]
