When Joules and Kevin Rockman’s parents drop them off at Camp Whatsitooya on their way to an International Spamathon, the twins expect a summer of marshmallows, campfires, and canoe trips. What they do not expect is to defend the earth from an invasion of sugar-addicted, murderous, seven-foot-tall rabbits from another galaxy. Happily, the Rockman twins, veteran watchers of ...more

I liked this book a lot. The premise is, of course, completely wacky. Giant alien rabbits who survive on candy and can consume and imitate the bodies of humans. Two children stuck at a summer camp while their parents are at a Spam cooking championship must find a way to survive and beat the dreaded Fluffs. The book is a small size and there are pages of comic-style illustrations integrated throughout the story. The whole package is designed very approachably and in a totally fun way.

But really,

Although Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies is a "kids" book, I'm pretty sure it would usurp Invader Zim on my list of most fun things to watch if it was a TV show. I honestly couldn't have spent a hot day doing anything better.

The story itself is about a group of Fluffs that come from outer space and land near Camp Whatsitooya. They have a mighty craving for sweet foods, which gives them their alien powers. A camp is quite the perfect place to land for them. After stealing candy and marshmallows, th
This book was incredibly witty, appealing to both child and adult readers. There are funny illustrations and the plot itself is very entertaining. Two kids are dropped off at camp, while their parents go to a national Spam cooking competition. While at summer camp the kids end up fighting evil enormous alien rabbits with fangs!

What I liked the most about it is that it breaks that "fourth wall" and talks to the readers. It steps away from the story and discusses things with the reader of the boo
Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies is a extremely humorous novel/graphic novel hybrid for middle graders. Crazy giant bunnies that are sugar addicted and twins who's parents are obsessed with SPAM, and girls that are known asSmellyCat because they said their names all at the same time and that's what one of the characters heard... this author has a good sense of humor...

Aside from the humor I loved all the graphic bits mixed in from full panel pages or random advertisements thrown in, it really works

The bunnies attack! Resistance is futile! Give in to cuteness or face the wrath of the meek which shall inherit the earth!....Anyway, this funny bunny book has three alien bunnies from a marshmallowy planet who come to earth with powers and abilities beyond those of mortal comprehension! They love to snack on humans (so THEY say!) and especially Swedes! IE: they smorgasbord on the Swedish cuties in ABBA, they gorge on Ingmar Bergman's classic films...but those girls with dragon tattoos they migh ...more
Kevin and Joules, twins, are dropped off by their spam obsessed parents at a barely functioning summer camp. Strange things begin to happen as you might imagine from the title. Strange in the form of giant white, sweet craving bunnies whose burps could bring down a house. The twins have to figure out a way to save the other campers and themselves.
3rd-4th graders who like funny and exciting books should like this one.
--Rachel V.
This has to be the strangest book I have ever read! Hypnotising bunnies, SPAM-loving grown-ups and some kids that are very resourceful. Part book, part comic (or graphic novel if you prefer), quite an enjoyable read! I have to admit though when they got to camp and were offered "tube steaks", I had no idea what they were talking about! Thankfully Joules enlightened me! (hotdogs, just FYI)

This is a science fiction book aimed towards middle school readers. The book is about a pair of twins who are stuck at summer camp while their parents are at a spam cooking championship and end up having to fight off the fluffies who landed near camp and want to eat all their candy and marshmallows. but once all the candy and sweets are gone the fluffies want more. I gave this book a 4 star rating. While I'm not a big fan of realistic fiction I still think it was an okay book. I just couldn't se ...more
It was funny in an absurd way, but not as well executed as, say, MT Anderson books. It did not work well as a read-aloud. The 11 yo (reading on his own) enjoyed it more than the 9 yo (listening to me).
Amy Bearce
AWESOME! Hilarious and perfect for a reluctant elementary and even middle grade reader. Fast, fun, cute read. Future fans of Hitchhiker Guide will enjoy this.
Edward Sullivan
Lots of fun silliness that will appeal to fans of writers like Dav Pilky and Jon Scieszka.
that was funny and fun!
I'm reading this out to the PandaBat and we are both loving it. The narrator's voice is amusing, and the jokes are right up our alley. Most amazing is the timing. Several times so far I've read the text, given the appropriate pause, and the PandaBat has responded perfectly on cue, as if Beaty had transcribed a read aloud. Maybe that doesn't make sense. Anyway, we're both loving it.


One of my favorite bits, which I've got to mention: Kevin's lists. "Famous Last Words" as spoken in horror movies
There's not many words that would accurately describe Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies besides bizarre, yet it's a book that I can totally see being eaten up by middle grade readers, especially boy ones, everywhere because I also have to admit it's quite funny and original.

As Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies begins Joules and Kevin Rockman are expecting one boring week at the summer camp were their parents are drooping them of at. Though, the one good thing about is that they won't have to go to the ann
The attack of the fluffy bunnies has picture that go with the story.The picture show like what the bunnies are saying to each other . The picture have little comment . The book has 56 chapters in the book .The chapter are like 1-6 pages long . The book is good for your your kid or for your self because its easy .

When I first picked up this book I thought it was going to be kind of a scary sci-fi story, but then when I read the back of the book it sounded so ridiculous that I just had to give it a try!
While reading this book I discovered that while the story line itself is similar to those bad sci-fi movies that are so bad that they are actually good, the way this book is told is really funny.
The story plays off of many elements and moments found in the above mentioned movies, which is where much, but no
Mr. Southmayd
This was an entertaining summer read. It is a very short book about twins who go to summer camp and experience everything they never imagined. This book makes fun of itself and the reader as it narrates what is happening. Funny and insulting references to young teen pop culture make this a joy to read and overall puts a smile on the face of any reader.
I quite enjoyed this book. Although, that's not surprising as it is an Amulet book and I have yet to read a book put out by them that I didn't like. It had that quirky flavor of old sci-fi movies. It was, I will admit, fairly predictable, but the journey was fun so I didn't mind. Loved the illustrations and the comic-book-type moments.
I have just got to say. . . absolutely hilarious! I picked this up because I was looking for some "appeal to the reluctant boy reader" books. This certainly fits the ticket, but what I didn't realize was that I would enjoy it too. The premise is absolutely incredible - Giant candy eating Fluffs (bunnies) come to Earth when their marshmallow planet (that orbits a yellow Starburst sun) is destroyed by a meteor. They land near Camp Whatsitooya(near Lake Whatsosmelly). Joules and Kevin, twins, have ...more
Beware, Earthlings. Fluffy bunnies with hypnotic eyes from the marshmallow planet (which circles a Starburst sun) are on the attack. They've landed near Camp Whatsitooya and are looking for enough sustenance--candy and marshmallows--to be strong enough to take over Earth. Mmmm, yum. Nothing like sugar-fed earthlings to satisfy the appetite.

I'm not sure why I like this book as much as I do but some reasons might be--
the combination of narrative with graphic novel style
the sheer silliness of the
Kevin and Joules are really looking forward to summer camp. It is a chance to make new friends, learn new skills, and getting away from their parents' spam creations. Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away, the three survivors of a distant planet are hurtling toward earth after their own world was destroyed. The fluffs are anything but fluffy and cute. At over 6 feet tall, these rabbits are Fierce, Large, Ugly, and Ferocious Furballs and they are hungry and ready to take over our world. But don't ...more

My daughter and I finished this one and she was laughing the whole way through even though I don't think she got most of the jokes. The illustrations are the best part!
Kevin and Joules, dumped at Camp Whatsitooya (on the shores of Lake Whatsosmelly)by their distracted parents, discover that their camp has been invaded by alien bunnies from another planet. The bunnies, who adore sweets, are intent in world domination. Kevin and Joules must rely on their knowledge of horror movie tropes to save the other campers.

To quote one of my students, "This isn't the type of book that changes your life or anything, but it sure was fun to read." I know that there is a clas
Maggie Wrobel
Hilarious. The story is illustrated with a few scattered comic book pages. Much of this is a spoof of a lot of bad sci fi that I think the kids are going to love. Plot revolves around 2 brainiac kids who have scientists for parents. Kevin loves to keep detailed charts of his observations and his twin sister likes to literally use the stick poking method for determining things. The two are dropped off at Camp Whatsitooya, while their parents attend their annual Spam Festival. Fluffs (feriocious, ...more
Twins, Joules and Kevin have been dropped off at Camp Whatsitoya for a week by their Spam loving parents. The camp activities include: making lanyards, canoeing, swimming and trying to rescue the rest of the campers from killer alien rabbits who want to eat everything and everyone in sight!
Will they be able to outsmart the bunnies or become bunny food?
Kimberly Caldwell
Science Fiction: 2010 - In this science fiction/comedy, Kevin and Joules must save their summer camp when terrifying Fluffs from another galaxy take over the camp to ultimately take over the world. Beaty presents the story in a humorous account that should be appealing to younger readers not ready for some of the popular science fiction texts texts that are out there. Woven into the story are some discussion worthy text features such as charts, tables, footnotes, and comic strips. I can seeing u ...more

Very funny! Fluffs (Fierce, Large, Ugly, and Ferocious Furballs) have come to Earth!!! Their rocket landed at Camp Whatsitooya, the same camp our main characters, twins Joules and Kevin, are being forced to spend their summer. These large, telepathic, and hypnotic killing machines love sweet foods and after they have eaten all of the camps marshmallows, they come up with a plan to turn the whole human race into sweet, mushy deliciousness. Can Kevin and Joules stop them? Well, since it's their bo ...more

Debbie Tanner
This is a silly book about mutant rabbits that come from outer space. I think kids will like it because it's so silly-the rabbits are big and mean and not that smart and like to eat junk food and smaller creatures. The adults are all obsessed with unusual things (the parents of the main characters are obsessed with Spam and the camp counselors are obsessed with crafting and contamination). If you like really crazy books, you'll like this one.

I was raised in a big family in a tiny town in southern Illinois. Our small house was jammed with 6 kids, 2 adults, a variable number of cats, 1 dog and thousands of books. It was great. Since I grew up in the 60's and 70's, I didn't have the internet or cable TV to keep me amused, but I had something much better--my siblings. We spent our days watching bad TV (B-movies, Gilligan's Island, the Bra ...more
