Bunnicula and Friends: The Vampire Bunny is a nice transitional read for the child moving from easy readers to longer chapter books. The book is a shortened, simplified version of Howe’s popular chapter book Bunnicula. As with most easy readers, the focus is on the action, so readers won’t get the detail, background, and character development present in the original book, but Howe is a fine writer and does a good job of capturing the flavor of the story. The pacing is good, and the book will ca ...more

Although this is just a condensed version of Bunnicula: A Rabbit-Tale of Mystery, the first story in the Bunnicula series by James Howe, our girls loved the comical and colorful illustrations and we enjoyed reading this book aloud together. It was a good opportunity to review the plot of the first story since we are working our way through the bigger chapter books very slowly. We've really enjoyed the books in the Bunnicula and Friends series and we will look for more of them at our local librar ...more

It's great to see "Bunnicula" adapted for the younger, transitional reader. This series is a hit with many of my students who read below grade level, but who enjoy a bit of sophisticated, ironic humor.

I believe Bunnicula was originally a higher level chapter book, so I was glad to see a lower level chapter series come out with the same concept. The characters are funny and sarcastic.
Great Ready-To-Read adaptation of the original story. Can't wait to read the other books in the series.
Cute tale of a mystery involving white vegetables and a mysterious rabbit.

It is about a bunny who everybody thinks is bad, but he is really nice.
My 10-yr-old son read this. He is on a Bunnicula kick!
