Bunnicula Strikes Again by James Howe

bunnicula-strikes-againISBN# 0-439-28080-X

     A funny quote from the book is when Chester and Harold are talking about Bunnicula and the vegetables:

     Chester hesitated before speaking. “Let’s just say he used to be a danger. I don’t think we have to worry about that any longer.”        “What do you mean?” I asked. Then I remembered. “Oh, because the Monroes feed him a liquid diet, he no longer drains vegetables of their juices. Is that it?”

   The story is about a bunny named Bunnicula who lives with the Monroe family and their two dogs named Harold and Howie and a cat named Chester. Throughout the story, Chester is trying to stop Bunnicula from draining the vegetables of their juices by drinking Bunnicula’s carrot juice to make him weak. This action is due in part because Chester thinks that Bunnicula is a vampire bunny and has always thought that since the Monroes brought him home from the movie theater. But, Chester’s plan gets side-tracked because Harold and Howie won’t help him escape the vet’s office even though they tricked two other cats, the cat burglars, into helping them sneak into the vet clinic. Harold and Howie were only there to help Bunnicula not help Chester escape. Do Harold and Howie help Bunnicula or does Chester’s plan to destroy the bunny work? You will have to read the book to find out what happens to all the characters in this enjoyable book. 

   I really liked the book because of how the author describes the actions that Chester takes to try and stop Bunnicula. I thought the part in the book where Harld catches Chester in the cage drinking Bunnicula’s carrot juice was really funny because I never thought a cat liked carrot juice. 

   I would recomment this book to anyone who likes animals and likes a mystery as well because you don’t know where the author is taking you with the story. This book is a good read for anyone who is grades 3-5 and for parents also, who would like to read this story and the previous two books in this series with their children. The other books in this series are Bunnicula: A Rabbit-Tale of Mystery, Howliday Inn, and The Celery Stalks at Midnight, Nighty-Nightmare, Return to Howliday Inn, and Bunnicula Meets Edgar Allan Crow which appears to be the final book in the Bunnicula series. I would like to read all the books in this series because this book was great to read and very funny.
