About Tales From the House of Bunnicula: Books 1-4
Dear possible listener of this audio, I want to be a writer, just like my Uncle Harold, who wrote a bunch of books about our friend Bunnicula. So I wrote It Came from Beneath the Bed!. It’s about a wirehaired dachsund puppy named Howie who saves the world from a disgusting, evil menace named . . . oops, that would give away the story! After I wrote my first book, my editor asked me to write another one. In Invasion of the Mind Swappers from Asteroid 6!, the lovable and smart (not to mention talented) Howie and his friend Delilah face their biggest challenge yet. Along the way Delilah gets turned into a squirrel and has to beg for acorns. Then my editor asked me for a third book–and did I have trouble getting started! But faster than a writer can say “What if?” I came up with Howie Monroe and the Doghouse of Doom. When Howie is mysteriously invited to attend the Dogwiz Academy for Canine Conjurers, he and Delilah discover they must fight a sinister foe . . . I wasn’t sure I’d be able to write a book again after Canine Quarterly said I would never win the Newbony Award! Luckily, Delilah’s read a lot of Newbony books, and she helped me write Screaming Mummies of the Pharaoh’s Tomb II. Things get exciting when Howie and his best friend Delilah find a time machine and travel back to ancient Egypt where they uncover . . . the mystery of the Pharaoh’s tomb! Uncle Harold says the books are exciting. Delilah says I have a lot to learn about writing girl characters. I have no idea what they are talking about. I just hope you like the stories. Your friend, Howie
