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.

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.

This is one of those brilliant books that kids can enjoy at face value and adults can enjoy for the tongue-in-cheek satire. An short and easy chapter book, it's also the best Harry Potter parody I've ever read.

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.

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.

Really great book. I loved it. It was a fun take on the Harry Potter books with Howie as Harry. I thought it was really great.
