Book Summary: Not a great place to visit, and you wouldn't want to live there.

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.

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?
Book Review: This is the second book of the Bunnicula series. Yet it doesn't even contain Bunnicula in it. This is quite an interesting thing about the book.

But anyway onward!

In this book, we find Chester and Harold are being sent to a boarding place called Chateau Bow-Wow while their family, the Monroes, are going on vacation. Of course, Chester is anything but pleased with this and Harold, well, he doesn't seem to mind being sent there. As the two settle in to the place, there are weird howls and one of the dogs being kept there goes missing. Chester, whom likes to read too much gothic mysteries, believes that it is the work of the werewolves and sets off to investigate. But when Chester goes missing, are there really werewolves at work? Or something else?

This was a rather fun read. I enjoyed this book immensely. Chester and Harold have become a real favorite. These books are really nothing like the show but it is still just as fun to read the antics of Chester and Harold. Although part of me feels sorry for Harold especially having to deal with Chester's vivid imagination; I think Harold should take away Chester's reading material. That cat always has some sort of conspiracy theory when it comes to strange things that go bump in the night. At the same time, Chester's theory does have some sort of substance of having truth to them. Not entirely of the supernatural, of course.

Still I enjoyed this book and I am quite looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
