In this book, a rabbit named Jasper Rabbit LOVES to eat carrots - especially the carrots that grow in Crackenhopper field. One day, however, Jasper Rabbit gets a creepy feeling that the carrots are following him. Jasper Rabbit lives in fear of the "creepy carrots" and eventually solves his problem by building a fence around Crackenhopper field so that the carrots can no longer follow him. Jasper Rabbit believes that this has solved his problem, but in reality he builds a fence that prevents him from snacking on his favorite carrots. This problem that Jasper Rabbit faces builds tension and piques the reader's interest to continue turning the page. The use of dark illustrations adds to the mysterious and ominous mood of the book.

Genre: fantasy
This book qualifies as fantasy because the main character, Jasper Rabbit has human-like qualities as well as the carrots. ( )

Jasper Rabbit loves to eat carrots. They suddenly come alive and chase him around. He ends up building a fence around the garden so that they are not able to come out. The carrots were very happy about this.

USE: Vegetation.
GENRE: Fantasy. ( )

Both the paper version and the audio version are delightful. Different enough experiences that both are worthwhile. ( )

Thought this a very clever funny book. The carrots showed amazing ingenuity and Jasper's great building skills were also pretty great. I thought the illustrations were a huge part of how smart the book was. The common every day objects were great and I liked that those and the carrots were the only orange items in the books. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

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.
