Book Summary: HOW DID ROSEBUD CHECK OUT FROM HOWLIDAY INN?

The Monroes have gone on vacation, once again leaving Harold, Chester, and Howie at Chateau Bow-Wow, which Chester aptly dubbed "Howliday Inn" during their last stay there. The motley crew of boarders may have changed, but the creepy goings-on at Howliday Inn have not. A ghostly voice, buried bones, and a collar with the name "Rosebud" on it suggest that murder may have been added to the services offered at the kennel.

A pair of yuppie puppies from posh Upper Centerville, two cat burglars (sisters-in-crime) named Felony and Miss Demeanor, a melancholy Great Dane named Hamlet, and a weasel named, well, The Weasel, join the Monroe pets in getting to the bottom of the mysterious happenings. But will they be able to escape the fate that may have befallen Rosebud?
Book Review: The Monroes are going on vacation and Harold, Chester, and Howie are heading back to Chateau Bow-Wow. Howie is excited about returning to the place of his birth but Chester and Harold have no desire to return to a place where things were weird.

And where is Bunnicula? Well he won't be joining the group. He is going to a friends house to stay.

The moment they arrive they meet several new faces and a mysterious voice that begs for them to release them. A pile of bones and the ghost of a Yorkshire dog named "Rosebud" whom has warned that there is some sort of terrible secret within the walls of Chateau Bow-Wow. Now it is up to the group and their new friends to solve this mystery!

This book was not entirely as good as the first visit to Chateau Bow-Wow but it still ranks up there as a great read. This book will keep you turning the pages until the very end as you try to figure out exactly what the mystery really is this time.

However, I wish we would see more of Bunnicula or even interaction with him. We know he is around but we never see any interactions with the other pets. Still this series is great and I recommend it to anyone whom has children.
