Kim has many hubs on entertainment especially on movies, and actors she wrote for Squidoo and now has her own blog

My cover


Is this what started my vampire obsession?

I'm lucky if I can remember what I did for the day, let alone what I read when I was little.

Bunnicula is a Level 3 book, which I have no idea what age that is, but I guess within the toddler stage?) I have no idea what in this book made an impression on me, that I would remember it as the first (or one of the first books) I ever read.

The only books I remember reading as a kid aside from this was my bedtime stories book, and in grade school a Shazam book which I read for a March-Of-Dimes 'Reading Olympics' (kid you not...I won the Gold Medal) and in either freshman or sophomore year in high school we read the Chocolate War in English class which well.. I wouldn't read because I was being forced to, but do intend to read it at some point.

There's another thing about this book...The bunny is a Vampire! The Cat Chester and Dog Harold of the house are aware of Bunnicula's feeding habits. (Don't worry, it's not a rabbit that sucks blood from humans.. it still eats his veggies but just sucks the color out of them.

Which brings me to my last point...was it this book of the vampire bunny that turned me into a child of the night and having an infatuation with all things vampire? For as long as I can remember I have 'ALWAYS' been a vampire fan to the point where...well I usually say as a Lady Gag Album or is it song goes.. "I was born this way"

NO Way.... go eat a carrot! - It's a series!!!!

OMG! I so did not know before my search that Bunnicula has a series! I thought it was just the stand-alone book. I do really want to find the rest of the series, but well let's say I'm a kid stuck in an adult and am quite hesitant on going for it.

The House of Bunnicula - Bunnicula spin-off?

There's also a using Bunnicula in the classroom, I don't know what that's all about but I thought there's something interesting and any teacher that may be able to use the series in class I figured to include it for them.

This House of Bunnicula I have no idea what that's about I'm guessing it's some sort of spin-off of the original series.

Bunnicula Movie! + other 'Monster' Pets.

Bunnicula is not the only movie monster animal.

If there's a 'Monster pet' you've heard about, like Bunnicula or Vampire Dog, & FrankenWeenie please let me know. I will include it on here.

Some of these are actually on my 'Queue' to rent.

Vampire Dog * Frankenweenie * Live action Frankenweenie * & My Pet Monster

They Made a Cartoon! (2016)

'Bunnicula' videos - what would come up if I searched Bunnicula

First off you gotta check the cartoons out on youtube (or see if you can find it for your personal library)

Surprisingly there are at least two videos worth a look. I think they are a bit silly but the only worth including

The white tomato - Bunny guest Book

      They are a fun series of books. There are quite a few other books with a vampire them that are appropriate for young children. I have a lens with a list of those.

      I loved this book when I was a kid. I suspect it started my love of vampires, too.

      I love this book/series! My siblings and I read it as kids. When I asked my husband if he ever read it, he looked at me like I had two heads. It is definitely a book I will be investing in when I have children!
