Revenge of the Horned Bunnies: 06/07/21

Revenge of the Horned Bunnies

Revenge of the Horned Bunnies by Ursula Vernon is the sixth of the Dragonbreath series. Danny, Wendell, and Danny's cousin Spencer are all headed to camp in a location that appears to be Holes adjacent. While Stanley was dealing with a curse and being sentenced to a work labor camp, Danny et al are facing dubious camp counselors and jackalopes who are being poached.

In previous volumes the adults weren't the villains. They have been incompetent foils, they have been absent, or they've been helpers. In this volume, though, there are genuine villains who are risking the safety of the campers and are decimating the local jackalope population.

Chart showing the progress of the Dragonbreath books on the Road Narrative Spectrum

Like the previous five, Revenge of the Horned Bunnies is set on the road narrative spectrum. Danny, Spencer, and Wendell as campers away from home are marginalized travelers (66). Their destination is the wildlands (99) (aka the desert and the camp). Their route there is via a bus on the blue highway (33).

Thematically, book six is about marginalized travelers going to the wildlands via the blue highway (669933). For the observant reader, it's a return to the themes used in the third volume, Curse of the Were Wiener (2010).

The seventh book is When Fairies Go Bad (2012).
