Bunnicula and its sequels Howliday Inn, The Celery Stalks at Midnight, and Nighty-Nightmare, all by James Howe, are classics in children's literature and in the annals of Bunny Lore.  The title character is a bunny who sucks the vital juices from vegetables (clearly a vegan bunny rather than the more common humanivorous kind).
