James Howe has written more than eighty books in the thirty-plus years he's been writing for young readers. It sometimes confuses people that the author of the humorous Bunnicula series also wrote the dark young adult novel, The Watcher, or such beginning reader series as Pinky and Rex and the E.B. White Read Aloud Award-winning Houndsley and Catina and its sequels. But from the beginning of his career (which came about somewhat by accident after asking himself what kind of vampire a rabbit might make), he has been most interested in letting his imagination take him in whatever direction it cared to. So far, his imagination has led him to picture books, such as I Wish I Were a Butterfly and Brontorina (about a dinosaur who dreams of being a ballerina), mysteries, poetry (in the upcoming Addie on the Inside), and fiction that deals with issues that matter deeply to him. He is especially proud of The Misfits, which inspired national No Name-Calling Week (www.nonamecallingweek.org) and its sequel Totally Joe. He does not know where his imagination will take him in the next thirty-plus years, but he is looking forward to finding out.

Series: Bunnicula #1 Although I'd heard of this before when it popped up on my feed, I'd never actually read it, and it sounded cute enough that I thought I might as well if I could get it from the library. It was as cute and as funny as promised, although I can't say that I approve of giving the ...

“He’s a vampire!” Chester snarled. “Today, vegetables. Tomorrow … the world!” I loved this. I loved Bunnicula, and I loved the relationship between Harold, the dog, and Chester, the cat, which is obviously based on Watson and Holmes. Chester is such a cat ... and a bit of an asshat. This cra...

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleI used to read this book all the time when I was a kid. I absolutely loved it. I remember sitting in my closet (where I stored my bookshelf for some reason) reading it and being slightly terrified that a vampiric Lagomorpha would jump out at me at any ...
