Great short story - wonderfully done. Not a childrens book - but adults will find this a wonderful short read. Horror genre.

Pretty good for a horror short about kids; my only real issue was that I didn't really understand the 'rules' of how the bunnies worked (I don't want to say much more to avoid spoilers).

What a great little story! Often with unknown authors there is a concern about spelling and grammatical errors that an editor would pick up. Not so here; I was able to relax and enjoy the action.
I loved the difference in writing styles between the two characters, painted a better picture than paragraphs of descriptive prose.
Will hunt down your others now!

I really enjoyed this story. I liked the transition between the two characters, it happened very organically with the transferring of the box.

It drew me in in a subtle way - I was just casually reading and slowly found myself getting more and more tense waiting to find out what would happen.

Very imaginative and engaging, great work as always :-)

I love the way that this was written from the perspective of the children themselves - the thought process, the innocence and the realisation of consequences following actions.

Zombies are a bit of a cliche, zombie bunnehs a bit of a stretch. It could have worked, had you made the changes between characters clearer, and given the bunnies more purpose. Now this seemed like it was trying too hard, trying to be horror just for the sake of it. There was no warmth between the lines. I could feel no fire. Passion, yes, but fire, no.

And typos. Many typos.

This is a great evil little story. Well written and a little twisted. I will never look at my daughters rabbits in the same way again!

Great characters and buildup, tapping into how crappy kids are to each other and fears of critters. I wasn't too crazy about half the story centering on Katarina and half on Brendan, and there were a few typos, such as 'breath' where 'breathe' was intended. I think a leaner, 3500-word version would do the trick more effectively, but overall I enjoyed reading it--most importantly, I finished!

Good story! Starts out with a feel like a normal children's story with a hint of foreshadowing, and then gets darker and definitely creepier.
