Dear possible reader of this book,
My editor asked me to write a third book in my series, Tales from the House of Bunnicula. And did I have trouble getting started! I was afraid I used up all my ideas. But faster than a writer can say "What if?" I came up with a story! It's about a lovable and smart (not to mention cute) orphan wirehaired dachshund puppy named Howie, who

Parody of Harry Potter! Freakin' hilarious!
still great fun
Yes, this a kid's book. And, yes, it only took me about 20 minutes to read. But really, "Howie Monroe and the Doghouse of Doom" is hilarious.

How could a book about a puppy with an over-inflated ego writing a parody of the Harry Potter books not be? James Howe is a brilliant writer.
I didn't like this book very much. I didn't like Harry Potter and this is just a parody of Harry Potter. But I did like the part at the end where the-evil-force-whose-name-cannot-be-spoken turns out to be a lonely kitten. I give this book a a two. It was OK.
this was a series that was ok but i could do without. it was nice to see how howie's mind track was though and how he imagined everything so it was nice to see everything that happened with him.
My 10-yr-old son blazed through this book in about 24 hours with lots of laughing... A kind of funny take off of Harry Potter which he enjoyed immensely.
