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.

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

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.

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

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

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)
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).

The title alone deserves five stars. Who can resist smiling? The story itself delivered lots of fun and laughs for my audience and me. If it matters, they were middle graders and I was already old, compared to them. I guess I'll transform into a mummy when I hit my forties? Anyway, I'm so glad I read this book aloud.

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

Twins Joules and Kevin are quite relieved to get to go to Camp Whatsitooya and get out of going to the Spam Fest with their parents. And it turns out a good thing that Joules and Kevin are well-versed in B sci-fi/horror flicks from a steady diet of The Late, Late, Late Creepy Show for Insomniacs. The things they've learned from those shows just might help them survive when strange things start happening at camp. Like the camp counselors force-feeding the campers sugary treats, forcing them to wa ...more

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

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

This is a pretty silly book about evil fluffy bunnies from another planet who land on Earth to eat humans like candy. It was funny, the pace was pretty uniformly quick, and the setting was familiar enough to be comfortable for readers.

A few things about this book though:

1) Some of the characters - specifically the fluffy bunnies and some of the kids at camp - had distinct names, but I couldn't keep their personalities straight. This might be a reflection of me, and it appears it wasn't necessar

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

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.

This book is all about two kids at a summer camp,while there parents are at the SPAM cooking fair. The kids are thinking pretty normal summer camp... until the Fluffs attack. The kids think the councilors are acting weird because they are buying lots of candy. The Fluffs are giant sugar addicted rabbits. Will the kids survive the attack of the Fluffs !?!?!?

I thought the book was funny because the Fluffs have fiery burps and have telepathic speech.

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--

I'm the owner/servant of two bunnies and I've been taking care of rabbits since a kindergarten student brought me a bunny to save it from the stew pot. I was intrigued by the title and cover as soon as I saw it on as a recommendation.

It's cute! It reminded me of Bunnicula, a book I've loved ever since I first saw it as an Afterschool Special.

Even though I believe it's reading level lower than my students', I'd like to use it to introduce different forms of book talks.

Another book that I've read this summer was Attack of The Fluffy Bunnies. It's mostly about two twins Kevin and Joules Rockman who went to Camp Whatsitooya not far from a lake called Lake Whatsosmelly. The camp was lame for them; then all of a sudden people started vanishing and controlling monster-bunnies by attacking the people at camp. The Rockman twins tried to save these people by studying tactics of war. Then there was that silly idea that surprisingly solved every thing. The silly idea wa ...more

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
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

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

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.
