the celeryThe Celery Stalks at Midnight by James Howe

From the cover:

Where is Bunnicula? That’s what Chester the cat, Harold the dog, and Howie the dachshund puppy would like to know. When Chester makes the chilling discovery that Bunnicula the vampire bunny has vanished from his cage in the Monroe household, his head is filled with visions of killer parsnips, bloodthirsty string beans, and homicidal heads of lettuce! Everyone knows that vampire victims become vampires themselves—and the neighborhood gardens reveal the ultimate horror: bloodless zombie vegetables!

Determined to save Bunnicula’s victims and the unsuspecting Monroes, Chester leads the valiant friends on a wild bunny chase involving a hazardous garbage truck ride, a hair-raising encounter with an irate tomcat…and that’s just the beginning!

My thoughts:

This was a fun read. I’m so glad Amber likes this series, since it’s one of the few I remember from when I was her age. The title just stuck in my head. There are parts of it that are laugh out loud funny, too. It looks like Chester may be right o be concerned, too, when the pets see vampires and zombies roaming their neighborhood. I won’t spoil the ending for you, though.

I will say, you need to read Bunnicula before you pick this one up. You have to get to know the characters, especially Bunnicula himself. I can’t wait to go back and read Howliday Inn with Amber.
