Publisher Comments:

An overnight camping trip! Not Harold's idea of fun. Too many mosquitoes, ticks and cockleburs. But when the Monroe family set out, their faithful dog Harold was with them, mostly because he remembered that camping could also bring s'mores and toasted marshmallows. Howie, the other family dog, and Chester the cat were also included in the trip. Only Chester thought the idea was completely insane. The woods, he informed Harold, were not only full of cockleburs and ticks, but of spirits, evil spirits who prey on the innocent. And on this, the worst night of the year — St. George's Eve, when all spirits are set loose — who knew what could happen. andlt;BRandgt;What Harold knew was that Chester was a well read, over-stimulated cat, full of weird ideas. He did not take Chester's worries too seriously. He had s'more to think about. But then, the Monroes set up camp near two strange men and their even stranger dog, and things began to happen that made even Harold wonder. Could Chester be right? andlt;BRandgt;This begins a long night, full of terrors and alarms, full of Chester's horrifying tale of how Bunnicula, the vampire bunny, was born and came to America, full of storms and a total sense of danger; and at the end came surprises that even Chester could not have predicted. andlt;BRandgt;Once again, the Monroe family may be the victims of evil forces or only of Chester's strange imagination. But whichever, the result is suspenseful and very, very funny.

Synopsis:

James Howe is the author of more than seventy books for young

readers, including the popular and award-winning series about Bunnicula

and his friends. Among his other books are the Pinky and Rex series,

The Misfits, Totally Joe, and the Sebastian Barth mysteries.

James did not enjoy camping when he was a boy, but he did always wish he

had a pet skunk. He still does wish this at times, but for the most part

he's happy with the dog and two cats who share his home in New York State.

James Howe says:

Back in the Olden Days, before there were such things as cable television

or DVDs, I loved staying up late at night to watch old horror movies on TV.

My favorites were the ones about hollow-eyed vampires and torch-bearing

peasants, or those with mad scientists whose accents fell somewhere

between Upper Mongolia and the Bronx. Nighty-Nightmare came out of

the affection I still feel for those movies and the laughs — along with

the chills — they gave me. Chester's story of how Bunnicula traveled from

Transylvania to America is a spoof of just about every old horror movie

I ever saw

Synopsis:

When scary strangers appear at the Monroes' overnight campsite, Chester the cat tries to convince the family's two dogs that foul play is intended.
