      Librarian Note There is than one author in the database with this name See this thread for information.James Howe has written than eighty books in the thirty plus years he s been writing for young readers It sometimes confuses people that the author of the humorous Bunnicula series also wrote the dark young adult novel, The Watcher, or such beginning reader series as Pinky and Rex and the E.B White Read Aloud Award winning Houndsley and Catina and its sequels But from the beginning of his career which came about somewhat by accident after asking himself what kind of vampire a rabbit might make , he has been most interested in letting his imagination take him in whatever direction it cared to So far, his imagination has led him to picture books, such as I Wish I Were a Butterfly and Brontorina about a dinosaur who dreams of being a ballerina , mysteries, poetry in the upcoming Addie on the Inside , and fiction that deals with issues that matter deeply to him He is especially proud of The Misfits, which inspired national No Name Calling Week nonamecallingweek and its sequel Totally Joe He does not know where his imagination will take him in the next thirty plus years, but he is looking forward to finding out.Librarian Note There is than one author in the GoodReads database with this name See this thread for information.

      Victor Garber does a wonderful job of voicing the many characters in this whodunnit mystery Howard the dog and Chester the cat are as lovable as in Bunnicula, but the story was long and wordy, so my kids seemed to lose interest toward the end 2.5 stars

    2. Jessica says:
      Probably my favorite of the series Chester, who has clearly read far too much Poe and Agatha Christie, smells a mystery the minute they get to Chateau Bow Wow, while Harold is concerned with the dynamics of the new animals they meet There are toy poodles vying for the affection of a bulldog, and a cat who his even insane than Chester I think my kids were even invested in this one than the first one.

    3. K.T. Katzmann says:
      The Empire Strikes Back of the Bunnicula series, and the only kid s book I ve read with a Scarlet Letter reference.If Garfield mixed with a little Buffy, it d be the Bunnicula series Thinking house pets investigate generally nonthreatening events that seem supernatural I loved these a s a kid, even naming a plush Benji I had Harold after the Dr Watson like canine viewpoint character The books were generally free of real conflict and stakes but fun for a tyke.Then there s this one.Doughty but sli [...]

      Although the second book in the Bunnicula series, this book doesn t really include the famous bunny that was introduced to readers within the first book Instead it explores the antics of that crazy literary cat Chester and his faithful yet long suffering pooch friend Harold as they board with each other at the Chateau Bow Wow while their family is off on their own vacation The book doesn t have as much comedy for the reader while at times it does seem to drag on even though the other characters [...]

      I remember reading this book as a kid Unfortunately it s advertised as a standalone novel but to understand the plight of the characters, you have to have read James Howe s Bunnicula series, so you ll have to pay a boatload of cash to get the series I did like Howliday Inn it s quirky, off beat humor was rather dark but still appropriate for children The book is vividly written, illustrated in black and white and has a very original plot At times it got a bit silly though, which was kinda annoyi [...]

    6. Kristina says:
      A fun read with my seven year old Not as enjoyable as the first book, but Chester s adventurous nature sure makes for an interesting story.

    7. Ms. Finley says:
      Another delightfully silly book involving my favorite dog and cat duo This time they are figuring out the mysteries at puppy cat boarding.

    8. Leonardo says:
      Bon cula es uno de las mejores variantes de la literatura vamp rica y uno de los mejores libros infantiles de las ltimas d cadas, as que La posada del aullido ten a un reto may sculo como secuela La nueva aventura de la pareja dispareja formada por el inteligente, aunque algo disparatado, gato Chester y su asistente, el leal, aunque algo ingenueo, perro Howard los lleva a un hotel para mascotas donde sus humanos los dejan mientras se van de vacaciones El misterio que lentamente se va desarrollan [...]

    9. Blake T says:
      James Howe presented the setting of this book by saying there was a dog named Harold, and a cat named Chester The pet owners included two boys one loved each pet and a mother and father They decided to go on a road trip and could not take the pets with them so they boarded them at a kennel Once there, the two pets quickly took a distaste to their new environment There was a strange doctor who greeted them and a boy that seemed a little odd Then when they got inside they came across several dogs [...]

      I purchased this book Howliday Inn is the second book in the Bunnicula series Our favorite vampire bunny is missing in this one, as the Monroes are on vacation and four legged detectives Harold and Chester are being boarded at Chateau Bow Wow, a facility that seems to be cursed or haunted as the occupants begin to disappear Not terribly bright, but lovable Harold suspects murder Clever, but overly paranoid Chester suspects werewolves Then tragedy strikes, leaving Harold alone to try to stop what [...]

    11. Dolly says:
      Our girls loved Bunnicula A Rabbit Tale of Mystery, and so we decided to read of the books in this series This story was a little intense, and at one particularly dramatic point in the story, my husband asked what I reading to our girls and why was it so filled with talk of kidnapping and murder But overall, it was a fun, and pretty harmless book to read aloud and we read over 100 pages in one sitting the story was that engaging and drew us in so well We will definitely read in this series Re [...]

    12. Lisa says:
      This one wasn t as fun as Bunnicula was The story was a bit drawn out, there were too many new characters to keep track of, and the family and Bunnicula were missing on vacation the entire time But, while I didn t enjoy it as much as the first book, my 10 year old loved it A new character joined the family at the end, so we are interested in reading book 3 to see what happens next.

    13. Robin says:
      I recall adoring this series as a child One of my elementary school teachers read a few of them out loud to our class Some reviewers said that kids had trouble keeping track of the characters, but I don t think anyone I knew had any trouble I would recommend these books to parents as good audio books for car rides Entertaining enough for everyone.

    14. Joshua Gross says:
      This was my favorite of the series when i was a kid, and I enjoyed it just as much as an adult I like the murder mystery aspect to it, and the new animal characters, and I thought the interactions between Harrison and Jill were strange and interesting and they eventually made sense.

    15. Kimberlee says:
      One of my favorite childhood books A must read.

    16. Marya says:
      Since Bunnicula, the character, is the best part of the first book, and he doesn t make than a fleeting appearance here, the book suffers for it.

    17. Sydney says:
      i like this book alot because it is kind of like a haunted house book.

    18. Trouble says:
      A fantastic book, and possibly the single best book on tape I heard in my entire young life.

    19. Cristi-Lael says:
      Just an adorably written children s series Great for reading aloud to your kids, especially in October My only regret is that I didn t discover these books until now.

    20. Kate says:
      Not as good as Bunnicula much harder to follow and missing the suuuuppppeerrrnnaattuurrrrrrraaaalll vibe Chester and Harold are boarded and suspicious things are going on.

    21. Sarah says:
      This was one of my favourite books when I was young Thought it would be fun to re read after so many years Still enjoyable.

    22. LittleDeadRedGoddess says:
      I am continuing to work my way through the Bunnicula and this one was just as fun as I remembered, I enjoyed this as much as Bunnicula even though he was not in this book the story managed to keep a little bit of a supernatural take That is, of course if you ask Chester the cat He was under the impression that a lovely couple, Heather and Howard were werewolves According to Chester it also seems a game of murder is afoot This book reads like a fun Agatha Christie novel with a cast made up of tal [...]

    23. Amanda says:
      Every year, my daughter s elementary school assigns a book for all students to read together with their families This year, we were assigned Bunnicula The story was mildly interesting, so when I found that there was a whole series, I downloaded the audio collection for bedtime listening The second book Howliday Inn was an uncomfortable listen It seems not to have aged well Male animal characters discuss women problems, not in terms of particular women, but referring to women in general The tone [...]

    24. Simon says:
      This book was actually far entertaining than I had expected It s made for the child audience yet I could see teens and young adults who enjoy animals to be swept up into the world of Bunnicula and the wild adventures of Chester and Harold I ve been aware of the animated TV show and thought it was a unique kids show design, I haven t watched any episodes in full but I am impressed with the smooth animation style and bright color scheme The general idea of the show is a bit exaggerated from the s [...]

      Every time I write a review of a book I read, with my seven year old daughter, I post the list of all of the books we have read together, that are not Harry Potter books here is that list School for Good and EvilBest Christmas Pageant EverTales of a Fourth grade NothingBunniculaRamona The pestBlack beautyPippi LongstockingHarriet the SpySo, where does Howliday Inn fit into this list I would put it right underneath Bunnicula and above Ramona the pest this was nowhere near as good as Bunnicula, bu [...]

    26. Matt Miles says:
      This is of a full on embrace of the Holmes and Watson personas for Chester and Harold as it s of a whodunnit than a how retheygonnadoit like the first in the series I was hoping there would be some sort of payoff to the werewolf subplot, but I m sure the answers to the questions I still had were being saved for later in the series Regardless, the humor and light mystery kept the story afloat for the most part.

    27. Flossmoor Public Library (IL) says:
      This is a very creative Juvenile level series which holds a place in my heart It centers around a vampire bunny named Bunnicula, who sucks the juice out of vegetables The main characters are the Monroe family and their pets, and the series is told from the perspective of Harold, the family dog The premise of the first book is Chester, the family cat, trying to convince Harold that Bunnicula is a vampire and that they must save their humans from him.Miss Emily

    28. Blue says:
      This lacked the magic that made book 1, Bunnicula, fantastic The cadence was similar but if I had to guess I would say the story premise itself was too serious to suit the characters and writing I know Bunnicula was a minor character in the first book, but here we even lose that fun Having listened as far as the author s note, however, I can see why there was such a big change.

    29. Eric says:
      Howard and Chester return after their vampire investigations in Bunnicula to experience a murder mystery within the confines of a pet boarding facility Longer than Bunnicula, and with what may be some challenging vocabulary for young readers, Howliday Inn is a good entry to the series, and has plenty of mystery and smart humor.

    30. Ericka Clouther says:
      Cute story about the family pets Harold the dog and Chester the cat being boarded while the family is away While they are being boarded they solve a murder missing pet mystery It s not quite as adorable as Bunnicula, and Bunnicula himself is not even in this book which is disappointing.
