Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds is a great introduction reader for the children who want to start reading scary books. This book manages to balance funny thoughts with frightening times, all which are relatable to a child. I really enjoyed this book because it brought back childhood memories of being scared for me. At one point Jasper Rabbit yells for his dad, making sure the creepy carrots are not hiding in the dark in his room. I think everyone can relate this moment to one point in their lives, from Jaspers point of view or from even his parents. I think this book is directed to children from ages 5-10, but it also just depends when a child is ready for something a little spookier. The book kept my interest because of its slightly mysterious plot, but my favorite part was the illustrations. The drawings are all black and white, except for the orange splash of color that was used for the carrots, and other objects Jasper thought were the creepy carrots. Using only black and white kept the book mysterious and the splash of orange drew ones eyes to the carrots. While this book might not be used in school it would be a great to read during Halloween.

This book is full of humor, suspense, and fantastic design. In the classroom, it would be a great tool to ask children what they think is really going on in the story or to make predictions, as whether the carrots are truly creeping or not is unclear until the end. ( )

Creepy Carrots is a great book to read aloud to any class, especially during fall/Halloween time of the year. Not only is this book just fun to read aloud, but also can help teach students a lesson about being greedy and taking too much. Reynolds describes Jasper Rabbit as carrot enthusiast until he begins to be followed and haunted by the very things he loves… Carrots! The storyline takes all the characteristics of a classic horror movie and twists it into story that’s far more fun than frightening. I thought the ending of the book when the carrots revealed their secret plan was a great plot twist and conclusion to the story that the readers are not expecting. I think that Reynolds writes a great story for kids and adults to enjoy as well and Peter Brown’s illustration definitely are an equal strength of the book. All the illustrations in the book use a grey scale expect for the carrots which are colored brightly orange. This makes the book feel as though it was set in an old Hitchcock horror film and for an even more fun read for kids and adults. I really enjoyed this book and I think that it would be a great read for a classroom because all kids want to hear a scary story, or at least think they do, and this offers them a fun and entertaining read.

Creepy Carrots is a book about Jasper Rabbit. Whenever he walks to school he passes a carrot field and he picks carrots to eat. When he walks home, he picks carrots to eat. Every time that he walks past the carrot field, he picks carrots to eat. One day, the carrots decided to come up with a plan, so they start to follow Jasper Roabbit around at night. Jasper gets scared whenever he sees the carrots but whenever he tries to show someone that they are following him, the carrots hide and no one believes him. Eventually, Jasper gets tired of being afriad of carrots so he decides to build a big wall around the carrot field. When he is done, the carrots throw a party because their plan to keep Jasper out worked. Genre: fantasy because carrots and rabbits cant talk. ( )

This is a fantasy book. This book follows a young rabbit named Jasper. Jasper loves to eat wild carrots from a forest by his house. He ate them during the morning, afternoon, and night. All of a sudden, Jasper is seeing creepy carrots following him everywhere! He tells his parents but they don't believe him and they think it is all in his head. Jasper knows tat it isn't so he builds a fence and moat around the carrots in the wild so that they cant creep on him anymore. In the end, the book reveals that this is what the carrots wanted all along, because now Jasper cant get INTO the fence to eat them. ( )
