Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Mrs. Morgan is moving and Pinky and his friends Rex aren't very happy. She has been a good friend who offered lemonade, cookies and sound advice. Now that she is older, it is difficult to take care of her house, so she has decided to move into a retirement community. Once her house goes on the market, Pinky and Rex anxiously watch as potential neighbors come and go. It appears that obnoxious Ollie is going to move in, but things take a very different turn much to everyone's surprise and pleasure.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3Mrs. Morgan, the elderly neighbor who first appeared in Pinky and Rex and the Mean Old Witch (Atheneum, 1991), has decided to sell her home and move to a retirement complex. Pinky and Rex are sad that their friend is leaving and worry about who might buy her house. For a time, it appears that a family with a very obnoxious child might be moving in. The two friends discuss the move with Mrs. Morgan and visit her in her new apartment. All ends happily when a different family does at last arrive. As usual, Pinky and Rex's feelings are respectfully explored and addressed. They reminisce over their friendship with their neighbor, bid her a tender farewell, and are comforted to find her settling in at her new residence. The ending may resolve things just a tad too nicely for some readers (the new family includes a friend for both Pinky's sister Amanda, and Rex's baby brother), but it will reassure children facing a move or the move of a friend. Sweet's pleasant watercolors accentuate key moments in the story.Marilyn Taniguchi, Santa Monica Public Library, CA

Meet the Author

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. Among his other books are the Pinky and Rex series, The Misfits, Totally Joe, and the Sebastian Barth mysteries. James did not enjoy camping when he was a boy, but he did always wish he had a pet skunk. He still does wish this at times, but for the most part he's happy with the dog and two cats who share his home in New York State.

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!"
