Reminiscent of 1950's Horror movies

Fluffy Bunnies 2: The Schnoz of Doom - Andrea Beaty, Dan Santat

Some people think that Fierce, Obnoxious, Odoriferous Furballs are fictional creatures. That is too bad for them because it means that they will not be prepared in case of an actual Foof attack. I do not have that problem. I have bunions. In case you do not know what bunions are, I will tell you. Bunions are what you get when you cross bunnies with onions. That is a lie, but it does not matter. What matters is that I have many people who know all about Foofs and who will help me if when they attack.

- from Acknowledgments by Andrea Beaty



Remember the horror movies from the 1950's, like The Thing or The Blob or Attack of the 50 ft Woman? Right, well I don't either. But you can easily look them up on the internet. They are tongue-in-cheek horror. Cheesy and not really scary at all, but mostly funny. That perfectly describes Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies and this book, Fluffy Bunnies 2: The Schnoz of Doom.


There are giant bunny aliens who smell terrible and have swirling eyes that can hypnotize people, butterfly farts that destroy planets, oh and did I mention, the giant bunnies want to take over the world? Throughout the book, Andrea Beaty talks directly to the reader and says some pretty funny things. There are several times when she talks about reading and then says "this message was paid for by a bribe from your English teacher".


The main characters, Joules & Kevin are twins and previously met some "scary" bunnies in the first book called Fierce, Large, Ugly and Ferocious Furballs (FLUFFs). In this book, they battle the Fierce, Obnoxious, Odoriferous Furballs (FOOFs) from the planet Stenchopia. Both books are have short chapters, move quickly and are easy to read.

Grades 3-5, reluctant readers and anyone who enjoys cheesy horror. :)
