For March's The Books that Made Me Love Reading Challenge, I read Bunnicula. I haven't picked up this book since the fourth grade, and even then I was reading it for a challenge. But I actually loved it so much, that I became determined to read the rest of the books in the challenge. I must have holed-up in the backroom for ages. When I finished my math early (and believe me, I finished early. I was a math whiz even though I hated it), I was able to sit in my teacher's huge massive walk in closet with a blanket and read. Talk about a Neverending Story kind of moment. My childhood mind was delighted.
I always felt bad for the bunny, even though he did scare me a little bit. Because Chester was right on some level - what if vegetables weren't enough for the little herbivore? What if he decided he needed something more than tomatoes and carrots.
What I think now:
I mean - just look at the new cover! Giant bunny, horrible red eyes, huge shadow looming behind him. He looks downright menacing. The old cover, he looks cute, a little scary, but mostly cute. And the new font! The new font is enough to make my nine year old self crawl under the covers and cry.
Regardless, I still adore this book. This was definitely a good March read. April's read is going to be All the Money in the World by Bill Brittain.
