The Monroe house is going mad with excitement. Pete has just won a contest, and the prize is a school visit from none other than M. T. Graves, Pete's idol and the bestselling author of the FleshCrawlers series. He's even going to stay with the Monroes while he's visiting! Harold and Howie are thrilled, but Chester the cat is suspicious. Why does Graves dress all in black? Why doesn't the beady-eyed crow perched on his shoulder say anything? Why has a threatening flock of crows invaded the backyard? And most worrisome of all: In each of the FleshCrawlers books, why does something bad always happen to the pets? Suddenly, Graves's interest in all of the animals -- especially Bunnicula -- looks far from innocent. It's up to Chester, Harold, and Howie to find out if M. T. Graves and Edgar Allan Crow are really devising a plot to make their beloved bunny. . . NEVERMORE.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Bunnicula, the vampire rabbit has delighted children for more that twenty-five years. The latest tale has to do with a prize that Pete won. His winning essay has his favorite author, M. T. Graves, coming for a visit to his school. It is even more exciting because Graves has agreed to stay with the Monroe family instead of going to a hotel. The other family pets, Chester, Harold, and Howie, are afraid for Bunnicula because he is to stay in the room with Graves and his pet, Edgar Allan Crow. They know that in the "Flesh Crawlers" books (written by Graves), pets always have terrible things happen to them and they are worried that Bunnicula will serve as a model for the next book. Also of great concern is a flock of distinctly unfriendly crows that has taken up residence in the yard. Will Chester, Harold, and Howie be able to thwart the creepy Graves and save Bunnicula? The black-and-white illustrations, especially those of Graves, are a perfect addition to the story. All collections should definitely have this book. Part of the "Bunnicula" series.
School Library Journal
Gr 4–7
In this seventh adventure featuring the veggie-vampire and his cohorts, the Monroe family is playing host to M. T. Graves, creator of the gruesome, popular "FleshCrawlers" series. While Pete and Toby are excited to meet a real-live author, their pets aren't happy about the visitor. First, Graves has brought along Edgar Allan Crow, a strange, silent bird. Furthermore, the yard is suddenly infested with dozens of other crows-squawking, calling, and obviously waiting for something-or someone. Worst of all, M. T. seems to be taking an unhealthy interest in Bunnicula. Chester the cat tries desperately to convince the other pets that Graves intends to use their long-eared friend for some fiendish purpose. Sheepdog Howard isn't persuaded, but then the vampire bunny mysteriously disappears. Can the Monroe pets find their friend in time-and discover what the weird writer is really up to? As always, much of the book's humor comes from the interplay among the animals. Chester's melodramatic imagination sees sinister plots everywhere, while laid-back Howard tries to keep the neurotic cat in balance. Aspiring author Howie, meanwhile, puppy-worships their famous visitor and is continually trying to get writing tips. The writing style is a mixture of chills and chuckles, and the black-and-white pencil drawings are appropriately eerie. Underlying all the fun is a quiet celebration of writing and the power of friendship and inspiration.

Pete, the eldest of the Monroe boys, has won an essay contest for describing why the Fleshcrawlers book series grosses him out the most, and now the author of the series, M.T. Graves, will be visiting his school. What's even more exciting is that, instead of staying at a hotel like he normally would, Mr. Graves has asked to stay with the Monroes, all so he could meet their most unusual pets.

The entire family works hard to prepare for their guest, especially Howie the puppy, who is as big a fan of the Fleshcrawlers series as Pete. Chester the cat, however, does not feel as excited about this as everyone else. He's convinced that M.T. Graves has some nasty things in store, since all of his stories involve changing animals into horrible things. Why else would he have made all of these strange requests, like having the vampire bunny, Bunnicula, stay in his room, and dressing-less salad left by his bed at night? Why did he specifically say he wanted to meet the pets?

A flock of crows blankets the Monroe house when their strange guest arrives, and it's all downhill from there. Is the author's corvine pet, Edgar Allan Crow, in league with the leader of the flock, and what does M.T. Graves plan to do with Bunnicula?

It's up to Chester, Harold, and Howie to stop them and save their friend.

I was surprised and sad to find that this is the last planned book in the BUNNICULA series. The final book manages to be just as enjoyable as the first--true to the characters and the tone of this long-loved series.

My favorite book is Bunnicula Meets Edgar Allan Crow.In the book A dog named Henry is very suspicious about a famous author named M.T. Graves. He tries everything to prove that he is omen.M.T. Graves writes the Fleshcrawlers series.he came to stay at the Monroe's house.Their son Pete wrote a letter to M.T. Graves about why Fleshcrawlers gross me out the most.Henry told Howie { another dog } to go up there and stay under M.T. Graves' bed.Bunnicula sucks vegetable's juice until he turns the vegetables white. M.t Graves wants Bunnicula to stay in his room with him. I like this book cause it sounded really interesting. It also sounded really cool. Its a mystery and I love to read mysteries. Who knows what Howie will find out ...
