Booklist - 10/01/1999 In this sequel to Return to Howliday Inn (1992), Bunnicula and his pals--Harold, Chester, and Howie--reprise their roles in new adventures. Despite a steady prophylactic diet of carrot juice, the fanged rabbit has started draining vegetables of their juices again, and Chester is determined to stop him for good. Actually, the poor bunny simply misses his mother, who abandoned him years ago at the movie Dracula Through a series of convoluted machinations, Chester manages to trap his nemesis at the old theater, just before the building is demolished. As always, Harold's deadpan narration, Howie's naivete and bad puns, and Chester's frenzied intensity add to the story's charm. This title stands on its own, but fans of the series will enjoy cameos by Chateau Bow Wow residents Felony, Miss Demeanor, Bob, and Linda. Howe's humor offers something for everyone, with references to Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarity for adults, and mention of a series of gross horror novels called FleshCrawlers aimed at kids. It all adds up to a great choice for a family read-aloud. (Reviewed October 1, 1999) - Copyright 1999 Booklist.
