The Amazing Karlovsky is coming to town, and Chester the cat is nervous. Everyone knows that magicians pull rabbits out of hats -- suppose they're vampire rabbits, like Bunnicula? Soon there could be hundreds of vampire bunnies on the loose! Chester springs into action and, with Harold and Howie in tow, is off to save the vegetables of the world -- and to turn the Amazing Karlovsky's performance into something no one will ever forget.

James Howe is the author of more than ninety books for young readers, including the modern classic Bunnicula and its highly popular sequels. In 2001, Howe published The Misfits, the story of four outcast seventh-graders who try to end name-calling in their school. The Misfits is now widely read and studied in middle schools throughout the country, and was the inspiration for the national movement known as No Name-Calling Week (NoNameCallingWeek.org), an event observed by thousands of middle and elementary schools annually. There are three companion novels to The Misfits: Totally Joe (2005), Addie on the Inside (2011), and Also Known as Elvis (2014). Howe’s many other books for children from preschool through teens frequently deal with the acceptance of difference and being true to oneself. Visit him online at JamesHowe.com.From Kirkus Reviews:
When Harold and pals Chester and Howie see the poster for ``The Amazing Karlovsky,'' who's to perform at the local school, they're alarmed: That's Bunnicula he's pulling out of a hat--will the world be overrun with vampire rabbits? After scavenging a dumpster for garlic, they dash to school (aromatic pizza trailing) and interrupt the magician just as a red-eyed rabbit jumps from his hat with a bunch of white carrots. Pleasurable pandemonium ensues; the magician is unmasked as the Monroes' Cousin Charlie; and a delighted young Toby Monroe learns how to get a rabbit out of a hat--a trick readers can mimic with instructions (and/or ``punch-out props'') in the back. The appealing animals in Daniel's illustrations burst their borders- -and almost off the pages. Predictable, but fans will love it. (Picture book. 5-9) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.
