I really enjoyed reading this story, as it was spooky and humerus. I think that this would be a great book for young readers as it is engaging, and they will love the funny pictures.

Creepy Carrots! Is a funny book about a little rabbit, Jasper, who loves to eat carrots from a field that he passes multiple times a day. As the days go on, Jasper starts hearing carrots following him home. Jasper becomes paranoid and constantly yells for his parents because he thinks the carrots are all around him. Then one day Jasper decides he will do something about it. He builds a big fence and moat around the field so the carrots cannot escape. Little did Jasper know, that was the carrots plan all along to keep him from eating them anymore.
This was a funny story because in the end the carrots had planned to scare Jasper all along so he would leave them be. It shows there are always two sides to a story.
After the story, the children could come up with other ways to keep either the carrots from following Jasper, or Jasper from eating the carrots. Also, they could draw their own creepy carrot and have a personal background for who their carrot is. ( )

Creepy Carrots! is a picture book by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown. In Creepy Carrots!, we follow a young rabbit named Jasper who loves carrots. This book fits into the modern fantasy genre due to the presence of talking rabbits and living carrots while taking place in a modernish world. He eats them every day and any chance he gets. However, out of nowhere, he starts seeing something strange. He keeps seeing creepy looking carrots following in a menacing tone. Or does he? Creepy Carrots! Is a very fun little book that uses its colors very well. The book is mostly colored in grays and blacks, except for the creepy carrots themselves. They always show up in orange which makes them stand out distinctly on the page. I also think this story does a really good job introducing kids to concepts like horror tropes, or irony near the end of the book. I definitely recommend this book. ( )

This book was good, but not one of my favorites.Creepy Carrots has good illustrations and I liked the language used in it, the plot just was not something I really enjoyed. I liked the illustrations because they showed that the carrots turned into regular objects whenever the rabbit thought that the carrots were following him. For example, in one situation when the rabbit turned around the three carrots turned in a pair of scissors, a chainsaw, and a paint can, respectively. I really did like the language that was used in writing Creepy Carrots. The author, Aaron Renolds, used descriptive language that helps catch the reader's eye. One example of his descriptive language is when he wrote, "The soft...sinister...tunktunktunk of carrots creeping." The message that was facilitated in Creepy Carrots was to not be too gluttonous with anything and that moderation is necessary with anything.

Jasper Rabbit is being stalked by the very carrots he loves to eat! His parents can find no evidence that he is being stalked, so Jasper takes matters into his own hands. This is a very cute book with great illustrations that add to the suspense. ( )
