Bri Meets Books

Children's and YA literature reviews.

Every Friday, I make a post on what books I’d like to see as movies, or write about a movie that was originally a book.   You can participate if you like as well.

This week, I chose the Bunnicula series by James Howe.  A middle grade series written from a dog’s perspective, there’s several books in the series.

The titular character, Bunnicula, is a rabbit who the animals – Chester, the cat, and Harold, the dog – suspect is a vampire due to his need to suck all nutrients from vegetables, rather than consuming them whole. The series starts with Bunnicula, followed by Howliday Inn, The Celery Stalks at Midnight, Nighty Nightmare, Return to Howliday Inn, Bunnicula Strikes Again!, and Bunnicula Meets Edgar Allen Crow

There was also a spinoff series, Tale from the House of Bunnicula.

With all the CGI wizardry around, it’d be interesting to see either a live-action version of the series or an all-animated version.  In 1981, an animated version of the books did air as a made-for-television event, but according to fans, it differed heavily from the novels.
