The Celery Stalks at Midnight by James Howe

the-celery-stalks-at-midnightThe Celery Stalks at Midnight is a continuation of the story of Harold and Chester, the cat with the overactive imagination.

Chester thinks Bunnicula is loose and leads Harold and their new friend Howie on a chase across town to kill all the vampire vegetables.

Antics ensue.

I found I enjoyed this one much more than I did as a child. As a child it didn’t have the same sense of mystery that Howliday Inn had and was only a fun adventure. As an adult it’s still just a farcical journey through a neighborhood but it makes more sense and feels more coherent.

The situations and ideas in this book go a long way to explaining some of the stupid things that pets can do sometimes.
