School Library Journal Review

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 (c) Copyright 2010.
