Reviews

K-Gr 3-- Harold and Chester are back in another picture-book adventure--a mouth-watering treat for chocolate-loving Bunnicula (Atheneum, 1979) fans. Hot Fudge, in this case, refers to the pilfered variety, and, when a plate of the rich, brown, gooey stuff appears to have turned white, the vampire bunny is the prime suspect. These abbreviated adventures of the Monroe family pets can't hold a candle to their full-length predecessors. Still, Harold's breezy narrative has the same ingenuous charm, nicely tempered, as always, by Chester's arrogant pragmatism. And, if Morrill's watercolors seem a bit innocuous, his animal characters do have spirit and are more than equal to the task. Salivating fudge fanciers will welcome ``Mr. Monroe's Famous Fudge'' recipe, complete with admonishments against sharing the treat with their pets. --Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY

Harold, Chester, Howie and Bunnicula, the menagerie who debuted in Bunnicula , return in a mouth-watering caper. Mr. Monroe is making his famous fudge (recipe included). Of course Harold and Howie (both pooches) try their best to mooch a mouthful or two, but the fudge is strictly for the library bake sale. Then the Monroes rush off in such haste that they forget the fudge. Withstanding temptation, the animals stalwartly guard the treasure from the mysterious burglar who's been haunting the neighborhood. But while they fall asleep on the job the fudge disappears. Howe's whodunit, replete with surprise resolution, and Morrill's dashing watercolor illustrations will thoroughly beguile young readers. Ages 4-8. (Aug.)
