A dreamlike exploration of abuse that reads like a fairy tale and feels like a vintage European horror film. Difficult to read in places, but there's some great material here about the struggle to verbalize trauma, and the process via which failure to do so can lead to acts of violence.

When the Monroe family discovers an abandoned baby rabbit in a movie theater during a screening of "Dracula," their paranoiac, literature-obsessed cat, Chester, is convinced that the seemingly harmless new addition is actually a malefic bloodsucker. Told from the perspective of Harold, the exasperated family dog, Bunnicula is the inaugural title in a series of hilarious, genuinely creepy horror-comedies for young readers that spoofs adult mystery, suspense, and supernatural horror conventions.
