Scooby-Doo and the Haunted Doghouse: 08/19/06
After having finished Castle in the Air I was in the mood for something shorter. Fortunately the perfect book arrived in the mail via the Book Relay site: Scooby-Doo and the Haunted Doghouse. The book was published when I was seven, so I would have been the perfect age for it when it was new. At the time though I had no idea that one of my then favorite cartoons had books associated with them. I was too busy reading much older books like The Hobbit and various books from the Hardy Boys series.
Here is my BookCrossing Review:
Fantastic! The book arrived with today's mail and I just had to read it before making a journal entry. I was half expecting one of the newer Scooby-Doo kids novels but this one dates back to 1980 and the artwork was more in keeping with the old cartoon. I enjoyed how each page had an illustration to go with the text. While the choice of language is aimed at younger readers the mystery is still complex enough to have kept my attention.
