I absolutely loved this book because I thought the story was incredibly humorous and engaging. The first reason that I liked this book was because of the plot. Jasper Rabbit loved carrots from Crackenhopper Field. Jasper would eat them all the time. Jasper began to think that he was being followed by creeping carrots, but quickly thought it was just his imagination. Throughout the story Jasper experiences conflict, were carrots really following him or weren’t they? I loved the pace of the story and how the author led up to the carrots actually following Jasper. The story was also suspenseful due to not knowing if it was Jasper’s imagination or were carrots really following him? I just thought the story was incredible. The second reason why I loved the book was because of the illustrations. The expressions of Jasper and the creepy carrots really were appropriate to the mood of the story. It was evident to see what emotions the characters were experiencing. For example, when Jasper saw the carrots in his bathtub his mouth was wide open, eyebrows raised, and had fear in his eyes. Also throughout the story when the carrots would follow Jasper, you could see how upset and angry they were because they did not want him to keep picking carrots. The illustrations without a doubt enhanced the story. The main message of the book was that you should not take things that are not yours unless you ask. ( )

I think that this book is one that would be very enjoyable for young readers, particularly in October when it's halloween time when there is an emphasis on the spooky and the scary. I enjoyed how the book makes light of the rabbit's fear that he is being followed while also maintaining the gravity of the situation for the rabbit. ( )

Creepy Carrots! is an adorable story about a rabbit who starts to get some unwanted attention from some very creepy carrots. He must hatch a plan to stop the creepy carrots. But, the creepy carrots have a plan of their own.

Peter Brown's comic book style illustrations add to the humor and fright of Aaron Reynold's tale about a rabbit who imagines that his favorite treat, carrots, are out to get him. This entertaining story has a great surprise ending that delights children and adults. Even the jacket of this book has a story to tell its readers. I would highly recommend this book to any primary grade teacher. ( )

I thought this was a little out of peter Browns normal style but I liked the story line about how when were scared of things they are often just as scared as we are which in this case is moving carrots.

The carrots that grow in Crackenhopper Field are the fattest and crispiest around and Jasper Rabbit cannot resist pulling some to eat each time he passes by, until he begins hearing and seeing creepy carrots wherever he goes.
