Thursday Reads – Bunnicula

Here is where I shall share my favorite books.

Summary according to the Library of Congress: Though scoffed at by Harold the dog, Chester the cat tries to warn his human family that their foundling baby bunny must be a vampire.

I have never been able to accurately pin down what genre it is I write. Is it mystery, fantasy, science fiction? All I can say for certain is that I write fiction. I write what I want to, what my characters tell me to write. In a very real sense, I am only the narrator or the scribe for the stories that they tell. But I think that this broad type of writing can trace it’s roots back to my reading. I was a voracious reader that read everything I could get my hands on. So I thought that it would be fun to start sharing the books that mean a lot to me.

I’m starting off with one of my all time favs, Bunnicula. It is told from the viewpoint of Harold, a very patient dog and it is a joy to read.

When the family brings home a baby bunny after going to see the movie Dracula, it’s up to the family pets to determine whether or not this new pet is a threat to the family or not. It combines mystery, vegetables are turning white and being drained of juice, and humor, with the snarky and paranoid actions of Chester the cat.

It is an entertaining read and one that I return to again and again. What is a childhood favorite read for you?
