James Howe is the author of more than seventy books for young readers, including the popular and award-winning series about Bunnicula and his friends.
James Howe says: “Back in the Olden Days, before there were such things as cable television or DVDs, I loved staying up late at night to watch old horror movies on TV. My favorites were the ones about hollow-eyed vampires and torch-bearing peasants, or those with mad scientists whose accents fell somewhere between Upper Mongolia and the Bronx. Nighty-Nightmare came out of the affection I still feel for those movies and the laughs—along with the chills—they gave me. Chester’s story of how Bunnicula traveled from Transylvania to America is a spoof of just about every old horror movie
I ever saw!”
