Why I liked this title:

This laugh out-loud book is the story of a dog and a cat who live with the Monroe family. The dog is Harold, a laid-back and food-oriented canine who likes nothing better than a nice treat and a nap in the sun. The cat is Chester. Chester is, well, a little high-strung - probably because he reads too many murder mysteries at night. When the family brings home a new pet bunny, Chester immediately suspects that the bunny is not what it seems, and enlists the aid of poor, hapless Harold to prove his point. Hilarity ensues! If you need a good laugh, read Bunnicula!
