coming after Mario
Bookends are large living books in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. Bookends only appear in the course Big Boo's Haunt. Bookends possess sharp teeth and disguise themselves as regular books within a bookshelf. They hop out to attack Mario if he gets close enough. The green books disappear if they hit anything, including Mario.
If Mario jumps above the books, the book will disappear and release a Blue Coin. If Mario is hit by a Bookend, he loses two life points.
Bookends also appear in Mario Party 8 in King Boo's Haunted Hideaway. They hover around in the rooms instead of lunging at players.
