So imagine the twins' delight when they discover that their friend Professor Spydelle has developed a special life-restoring elixir, the only known cure for zombiism.

Howe, Deborah

Bunnicula

Move over Dracula! It looked like an ordinary bunny to Harold. But Harold was a dog by profession, so his judgment wasn't reliable - as he was the first to admit. But Chester, Harold's good friend and house-mate, was a very well-read cat and he knew there was something strange about Bunnicula. For one thing, he seemed to have fangs. And the odd markings on his back looked a little like a cape. But when Chester started finding white vegetables, drained dry, with two fang marks in them, he was sure Bunnicula was a vampire bunny.
So it was up to Chester - with Harold's help - to alert the members of their household before another carrot was lost . Because as Chester warned, "Today vegetables, tomorrow the world!"

Howe, James

Bunnicula strikes again!

It's happening again. The Monroes's kitchen is littered with the remains of vegetables, drained of all color. To Chester, it's obvious: Bunnicula, the vampire rabbit, is up to his old tricks.

But Harold is more frightened for Bunnicula than of him. The poor bunny doesn't look too good. Is he sick? Or just unhappy? Or has Chester finally gone too far in his attempt to make the world safe for veggies?

One thing's for sure: Harold isn't going to let anything bad happen to his long-eared pal -- even if it means leaving the comfort of his home, losing his best friend, and risking his own life. And if he fails -- could this be the end of Bunnicula?

Don't miss any of the adventures of Harold, Chester, Howie, and the vampire bunny, Bunnicula!
