The Celery Stalks at Midnight: This a good funny read. Nothing really dark and evil. Chester the cat is worried that Bunnicula the household rabbit is a vampire. Instead of drinking blood he drinks Vegetable juices. When Bunnicula goes missing Chester is certain that Bunnicula is collecting his minions to do his evil work. So he, Harold and Howie go off on an adventure to save the world. Fiction/ comedy
I liked this book. It wasn't my most favorite Bunnicula book but it was an easy read. It was short and funny. My favorite character is the new puppy Howie. He's so funny. =) The only bad part of this book that I thought it was kind of predictable. I could almost see what would happen before it happened. Still a good book.

The Celery Stalks at midnight is a cute book about a vampire bunny rabbit who sucks the juice out of vegetables, and the pets have to stop him!

I was not a huge fan of Bunnicula but I thought I would try the sequel. I was not super impressed with this one either. I know that children love these books I just can't figure out why. The interaction between Chester and Harold is funny at times though and kept me reading.

Very adorable but horrifically dated.

A more direct sequel to the first novel as Bunnicula escapes from the house leaving a trail of dead, blanched vegetables in his wake. Chester's suspicions are again aroused and he draws in Harold and the new dimwitted puppy Howie into his investigation, leading to mayhem. It's very silly and funny.

So cute...
Harold and Chester are back in this all out war against vampiric vegetables! When Bunnicula gets loose everyone is only a bite mark away from falling victim to his undead vegetable minions.
These books are so cute. Love them. Highly recommend.

Cute, but not nearly as funny as the very first Bunnicula.

Bunnicula is missing! Chester, the cat, is convinced Bunnicula has escaped and has drained the living juice out of vegetables. It is further confirmed when he finds a white carrot (I wonder if it is a parsnip). Chester enlists (more like bosses) Harold, the dog, and Howie, the dachshund puppy, to help in finding Bunnicula before the who town is turned into vampires.

This may be a kids' book, but adults will get laughs from it. Searching for Bunnicula, the animals wind up on a wild ride in a truck full of garbage to the dump (phew!), destroying the scenery for an outside Halloween play, terrorizing a white cat (who will be looking for revenge) and even more craziness.

This is the third book in a series. I've recently review "Howliday Inn" and plan to read the first, "Bunnicula," and the last, "Return to Howliday Inn." Not long reads but really fun.

Again, this is told by Harold, the dog.
