January 26th, 2010 by


A liverwurst-loving cricket. A waddling raccoon. And, of course, a funny bunny (yep, that’s him over on the left).

These are just a few of the creatures we’ve rounded up for our latest podcast, all about unusual animals (in other words, animals other than cats or dogs)!

Book Trailer: Bunnicula

January 19th, 2010 by

This book trailer for Bunnicula was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Unusual Animals theme. For more on Bunnicula, check out our “Rabbits and Crickets and Owls – Oh My!” podcast.

What could be sweeter than an adorable little rabbit? Look at the Easter Bunny and Little Cottontail, right? At least, that’s what the family thinks in Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe. But when they adopt an abandoned rabbit, it soon becomes clear that this unusual animal was never the type to hop down the Bunny Trail…
