This starts off with the 3 main characters in the book which are Howie,Chester,and Harold lying down on the porch and talking about the bunny which they later find out from Chester that its a vampire. - Pg 3 " Chester, Howie and I were gathered on the front porch for a bit of post-dinner snoozing". - Pg 7 "That rabbit is a vampire," Chester said matter-of-factly. He has drained the juices out of vegetables, turning them ghostly white".
While they were talking about the vampire bunny which they call Bunnicula they never noticed that the bunny have escaped from its cage till they glanced over and didn't see him in the cage. Now knowing that the bunny was a vampire they start to panic. - Pg 16 "Howie, barely able to contain himself, blurted out, "The rabbit's gone! Look, he's not in his cage!"
As they were walking outside in the backyard trying to find Bunnicula they found a dead carrot. It appeared to be completely white as if its life had been sucked out of it and that is when they knew that Brnnicula had been there. - Pg 34 "As i drew closer, he pulled himself up to his full height and proclaimed dramatically, "A carrots. A ... drained ... white ... carrot!"
