An overnight camping trip! Howie, the Monroe's faithful dog, is not excited, and Chester the cat is worried. The woods, Chester informs Harold, are not only full of cockleburs and ticks, but of spirits - evil spirits who prey on the innocent. Harold is not taking Chester seriously. But when two strange men and their even stranger dog set up camp next to the Monroes, things begin to happen that make even Harold wonder. Could Chester be right?

    " Maybe its because I've now read four of these in a row, or because I didn't read this one as a kid, or because this one's just dumb, or a combination of all of those, I didn't like this one as much as the others. It's like a cross between Deliverance, Dracula, Homeward Bound, and maybe some Sex and the City. Howie does seem to be turning into Carrie Bradshaw in this one. The Monroes and their pets are camping in the woods, where they meet two creepy yokels named Bud and Spud, and their dog Dawg. Bud and Spud lure the Monroes away from their campsite while Dawg lures the pets away from their owners and they get lost in the woods. Chester's convinced that they're all up to no good, and decides to tell a fanciful story about Bunnicula's origins that takes two chapters in the middle of the book and is an homage to old horror movies. As usual, their plight turns out not to be as dire as they thought, or anything like they thought at all, and harmony is restored to the family. "

    " Excellent story. Who doesn't love talking, paranoid animals? Pictures are a great added effect as well. I will read these books to my kids, just so I have an excuse to read them again! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jason | 9/17/2013

    " The 4th installment of the Bunnicula series, and I had to look it up to remember what it was about. There was a camping trip, some new characters, and I don't know. I remember nothing about it other than that. It gets a 2. "

    " only a book about a dog that writes, a paranoid cat, and a vampire rabbit could blend creepy with funny as all get out. great for kids and people of all ages. "

    " Another Bunnicula book with my boys (who knew there were six of them, with a whole slow of related books as well?). We enjoyed this one a lot and it was perfect to read during the Halloween season. We really love the characters and the stories are always funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Graham | 8/28/2012

    " The fourth and final book I ever read in this series. It was a bit of a disappointment - short, lightweight and unmemorable, a bit of a re-run of BUNNICULA/HOWLIDAY INN/THE CELERY STALKS AT MIDNIGHT without adding anything new to the fold. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa | 7/11/2012

    " this one wasn't my favorite. mainly i think because of the way everything happened and turned out. partly because of dawg (no i didn't spell it wrong). but Howie i think was a very amusing addition to this story and was a good character to liven it up. this book was ok but no fantastic. "
