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?

I already know that I'm way too old to be reading the Bunnicula series, but that isn't going to stop me from borrowing all the books at the library every year. My favourite book in the series is definitely Return To Howliday Inn.
Harold, Chester, and Howie are all going back to the dreaded Chateau Bow-Wow, a boarding home that the animals have named Howliday Inn. (Harold, Chester, and Howie are cats and dogs by the way).
Although the guests and the workers are different, the strange things that happen at Howliday Inn are still going on, and this time, an old collar and a pile of talking bones suggests that the current guests are in the presence of a murderer and are in grave danger.
This book, just like the others in the Bunnicula series, is fun and quick to read. It's something I would take with me on a car trip to pass the time. The story is fast moving and exciting, and there are little puns and jokes to keep readers interested and amused until the last page is read.
This is the only book in the series that I actually own, and that's because it will forever be my favourite. This is a read for kids probably much younger than me, because I can't see anyone else my age reading this book.
Also, If you're planning on reading this book, I recommend reading the other books that come before this one in the series, because they all kind of connect with each other. Or, if you don't have the time, at least read Howilday Inn, which is the story of the pets' first experience at Chateau Bow-Wow.

I really don't read books for 5-year-olds, so I don't have much to compare it to. I was disappointed that there wasn't more about the rabbit, he's my favourite.
