In this Caldecott Honor–winning picture book, The Twilight Zone comes to the carrot patch as a rabbit fears his favorite treats are out to get him.
Jasper Rabbit loves carrots—especially Crackenhopper Field carrots.
He eats them on the way to school.
He eats them going to Little League.
He eats them walking home.
Until the day the carrots start following him...or are they?
Celebrated artist Peter Brown’s stylish illustrations pair perfectly with Aaron Reynold’s text in this hilarious picture book that shows it’s all fun and games…until you get too greedy.
Jasper Rabbit loves to eat carrots. He cannot stop eating carrots. He stops by the carrot patch every chance he gets. But one day, Jasper swears that the carrots start following him. Jasper sees carrots everywhere. No one believes Jasper, so he decides to take matters into his own hands to stop those creepy carrots from following him.
The story by Aaron Reynolds is enhanced by the illustrations by Peter Brown. Brown's pictues are in stark blacks with bright oranges. The revelations of what Jasper believes to be creepy carrots as ordinary household items are among some of the best illustrations. The twist of an ending makes this a truly enjoyable, quirky little mystery of sorts. Perhaps not for young, young children, but any child with a unique sense of humor will appreciate the creepiness of these carrots. Perhaps especially the ones who don't like to eat their vegetables.
