Jasper Rabbit loves carrots, and none are better than the carrots that grow wild in Crackenhooper Field. He always grabs a few to munch on when he’s headed to school or little league, and he doesn’t think anyone minds much. That is, until he begins to see the carrots following him. EVERYWHERE. Are the sinister veggies a figment of his imagination? Or is he being stalked by… Creepy Carrots?
This was a fun book. There is a fantastic visual and storytelling motif that pays tribute to the horror movies of old (the drawn out suspense, the trichromatic illustrations – black, white, and orange, naturally) but isn’t so scary that young kids won’t enjoy it. In fact, this seems like an especially good book to read aloud, with lots of opportunities for spooky voices. However, younger kids might not get the joke, and could leave them a bit scared to eat their veggies! But older kids and baby bookworms like JJ will have a blast. The length is good, and this will make a creepy-cute read for storytime with your own little bunny. Baby Bookworm approved!
