In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.

When a family finds a baby rabbit at a movie theater, their cat Chester becomes convinced that the bunny is a VAMPIRE! He tries everything to prove that this new pet is dangerous, pointing out the veggies that have mysteriously turned white overnight. Meanwhile, the family dog, who considers himself too educated to believe in such superstitions, is trying to protect the little bunny.

Told from the perspective of the family dog, Harold, this clever story is enjoyable and easy to read. If you are into vampires (like I am!) or even if you only know a little bit about them, you will REALLY enjoy this book.
