Howliday Inn (Bunnicula)by James Howe
Synopses & Reviews
andlt;bandgt;Not a great place to visit, and you wouldn't want to live thereandlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; The Monroes have gone on vacation, leaving Harold and Chester at Chateau Bow-Wow — not exactly a four-star hotel. On the animals' very first night there, the silence is pierced by a peculiar wake-up call — an unearthly howl that makes Chester observe that the place should be called Howliday Inn. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; But the mysterious cries in the night (Chester is convinced there are werewolves afoot) are just the beginning of the frightening goings-on. Soon animals start disappearing, and there are whispers of murder. Is checkout time at Chateau Bow-Wow going to come earlier than Harold and Chester anticipated?
Harold and Chester could hardly believe it. The Monroe family was going on vacation without them. Bunnicula, the family rabbit, would be boarded with a neighbor. But they, the family's loyal dog and cat, were to be sent away with strangers; they were to spend a week at Chateau Bow-Wow.
Chateau Bow-Wow, observed Chester, soon after they arrived, could more properly be called Howliday Inn. Though what was howling, neither of them knew. Chester had his suspicions however; only a werewolf could make that chilling sound.
About the Author
James Howe began his writing career with Bunnicula, which was published in 1979. This book and his next, Teddy Bear's Scrapbook, were co-authored with his late wife, Deborah. Bunnicula has received numerous awards as a favorite among children throughout the U.S. and Canada and has been published in several foreign-language editions as well. Howe so enjoyed writing as Harold — the shaggy dog narrator of Bunnicula — that he went on to write further adventures for these characters, including Howliday Inn, The Celery Stalks at Midnight, and Nighty-Nightmare.
The author's other books for children include Morgan's Zoo, A Night Without Stars, and the Sebastian Barth mystery series.
James Howe lives with his wife, Betsy Imershein, and their daughter, Zoe, in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.
