Things are not what they seem ...

Are Harold, Howie, and Chester simply lost in the woods with Dawg, their strange new friend? Or have they been lured away from their campsite intentionally, leaving the Monroes at the mercy of evil spirits with mayhem on their minds? Lulling Dawg to sleep with a bedtime story may be their only hope of escaping -- but is the hare-raising tale of the origins of Bunnicula, the vampire bunny, _really_ a bedtime story?

An overnight camping trip! In the woods! With bugs and ticks...and worse. Chester the cat couldn't believe the Monroes were going camping on Saint George's Eve, the one night of the year when evil spirits come out to prey. Harold and Howie, the Monroe dogs, were looking forward to their adventure, but then they found themselves lost in the woods at midnight, surrounded by weird noises and with only a drooling, scar-faced visitor for company--they began to wonder if there might be something to Chester's warnings. But that was just the beginning. Before the night was over, there would be some fur-raising surprises, including a bone-chilling tale of how Bunnicula the Vampire Rabbit first came to America!

My 8 year old reader loves supernatural and adventure. A "could not put down" book for her.

Mr. Monroe--with a bit of help from Harold, the book-writing dog--has gotten it into his head that an overnight camping trip is just the type of adventure the family needs. So the Monroes pack up and head out into the woods, bringing along their faithful pets (excepting the vampire bunny, Bunnicula, who's missed out on yet another adventure by being boarded with friends).

Both Harold and the excitable pup, Howie, look forward to the fun of the woods and cozy fireside time with the family (Harold especially because of the promise of s'mores). But the ever-reluctant Chester the cat swears that, with the approach of Saint George's Day, all that awaits their family is doom at the hands of evil spirits lurking behind the trees.

It's easy for Harold to dismiss Chester's notions until the Monroes run across two strange men and their brain-dead bulldog, Dawg. When Dawg leads the pets away from the humans only to get them lost in the woods, Harold and Chester come up with a plan to sneak away and save their family. However, they have to put Dawg to sleep with a story first, and Chester's chosen tale of Bunnicula's origins makes for one creepy bedtime lullaby.

Remembering this book from when I originally read it as a child, this one still sticks in my mind as the most boring of the BUNNICULA series. The story-within-a-story is rather distracting, and lacks that bit of credibility that makes the rest of the books so appealing.

Still, if you like a good parody of the old monster movie origin stories, this would be the book to go to.
