While this review indicates a 2019 read date, I have read this every year since for the month of Halloween.
I read this a few times as a kid, and even tried to read the whole series. The first book is where it's at and the others try too hard, I remember thinking even back then. Only in a much more 2000s-slang term way. I couldn't have been more than twelve. I thought the book was totally action-packed and was happy to find my suspicions that dogs could understand me, confirmed. I read it again tonight because of an article someone wrote that I read, praising it. I had -no- idea about how Bunnicula came to be, or that it had -writers- behind it; twelve-year-old me thought it was -real-. As an adult, I read the introduction and felt sad for the widowed (widower? his wife died) author, and thought it was so sweet that they wrote this book to make each other laugh. I turned the pages, eager for nostalgia to kick in and wondering if I'd see this book in a different light twenty years later.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could not stop laughing. Oh wow, this book is so cute. Poor long-suffering Chester. Wonderful Harold to the rescue! And you have to feel -awful- for Bunnicula. Poor baby is a long way from home and one of his new siblings is homicidal. The authors of this slim volume are so talented that they had me feeling varying degrees of genuine sympathy for all parties involved! I was so glad about the ending, and so delighted with the creativity in this book. The illustrations had me grinning, and were so detailed besides. I'm so glad I read this again, and -this has been around for forty years?- What success! ( )

I still re-read this and other Bunnicula books occassionally. ( )

(Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC in exchange for review through Edelweiss.)

I was a huge bookworm as a kid (still am!), and - along with Nancy Drew, The Baby-Sitters Club, and Encyclopedia Brown - Bunnicula was one of my favorite series. So I was stoked when I discovered the graphic novel adaptation on Edelweiss.

BUNNICULA: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL follows the plot of the inaugural book, BUNNICULA: A RABBIT-TALE OF MYSTERY: while attending a screening of the movie DRACULA, a family finds an abandoned rabbit in one of the theater seats. The Monroes - mom and dad and their sons Pete and Toby - bring the little ball of fluff home and christen him Bunnicula, after the circumstances of his (very strange and spooky) discovery. Shortly after Bunnicula's adoption, weird things start happening in the Monroe household - most glaringly, some of the family's vegetables go white overnight.

The cat of the house, Chester, becomes convinced that Bunnicula is a vampire who will soon lead to the family's destruction. His attempts to unmask (then murder!) Bunnicula rubs his canine friend Harold the wrong way, and he soon takes Bunnicula's side.

Though it's been ages since I've read the books, the graphic novel seems to be a pretty faithful retelling of the story; a fun way of revisiting an old favorite, but in a new medium. It's strange; it didn't feel like a whole lot happened, plot-wise, for an 128-page comic book (and one that's heavy on narration, at that); and yet the story is fun, engaging, and moves at a pretty steady clip.

It's hard to judge the artwork, since the ARC isn't full-color, but I enjoyed the illustrations and thought they suited the overall vibe of the story quite well. My only complaint: Chester's face has this weird, humanoid quality that I found really disconcerting in an Uncanny Valley way. ( )

I had the pleasure of the company of my neighbor's 9-year-old granddaughter last night while her two grandmothers Christmas shopped.... for her, she hoped. She brought her book with her and after she fell asleep, I flipped through it, and then I sat down and read all 128 pages of this little charmer. Having Howard, the dog, be the narrator with his friend, Chester, the cat, was a stroke of genius. This book is so funny and absolutely perfect for all ages. Adults will enjoy the break it gives us from our everyday lives and the wonderful humor. The carrots and some of the other veggies were the only casualties in the story, and they were darn cute. ( )

A true classic in children's literature, "Bunnicula" is a tongue-in-cheek novel full of wit and wonder for children and adults.

Told from the perspective of a loyal dog, the story revolves around the mystery of a new pet - a rabbit the dog suspects is also a vampire, drinking the blood of vegetables rather than people. The story isn't particularly scary, and the humor is dry but deeply enjoyable.

The 40th edition is well made, with orange edges and a fun cover. The story itself and this edition both earn a strong 5 stars. ( )

Bunnicula is a classic that shows no signs of becoming dated.
