Creepy Carrots is a fantasy about a little rabbit who loves carrots. Soon however he starts seeing creepy carrots every where, no one believes him and think its just his imagination. Soon he had an idea that if the creepy carrots couldn't get to him than he'd be safe, so he builds a tall fence and a mote around the carrot field. The carrots plan worked. ( )

A little bunny loves to eat carrots. In fact, he stops by a local carrot patch everyday to pick himself a snack until he feels like the carrots are starting to stalk him. The bunny thinks that he sees carrots out of the corner of his eye everywhere he turns until he turns and sees that the carrots are not there. You have to read the book to find out what the carrots do to the bunny.

This book is funny and very well written. The bunny is being followed by the carrots in an attempt for him to be too scared to eat the carrots. I feel that a student of any elementary age would find this book to be great! ( )

Jasper Rabbit loves carrots. One day he notices that his favorite veg is staking him. Lots of humor and a great twist ending.

Jasper Rabbit loved carrots, especially those growing in Crackenhopper Field. But when they followed him home one evening, Jasper suddenly began to see Creepy Carrots everywhere. Despite his parents' assurances that there were no sinister root vegetables lurking in the vicinity, Jasper knew that they were out there, and he decided to take measures to protect himself. Little did he suspect the role he was playing in his vegetable foes' plan...

Awarded a Caldecott Honor in 2013, Creepy Carrots is an amusing tale, one sure to please young children who want stories that are a little bit scary and quite a bit funny. I enjoyed the surprise ending, in which it is revealed that the carrots are deliberately frightening Jasper, in order to get him to stop eating them, but I do wonder a bit at the wisdom of convincing children that it's a bad idea to eat their vegetables. Don't we already have enough of a problem with that? Leaving that qualm aside, this was an entertaining tale, one made all the better by Peter Brown's spooky pencil illustrations, which capture both the frights and the fun of the story. Recommended to anyone looking for lighter Halloween fare for younger children. ( )

I enjoyed this book. Having never read it before I was thinking it was something different than what it really was about. The illustrations in the book are amazing! The carrots have a lot of detail and look genuinely angry (especially on the cover) and the rabbit looks genuinely terrified. I like the fact that the carrots are the only image that has color. Everything else is black and white. The language was an easy read. The "big idea" of the book was that all of the carrots wanted to be together and eventually got their wish.

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.
