Well, it's almost time for Halloween and our annual search for the perfect book for the season is on. We've settled for a tried and true favorite this year: Creepy Carrots! (words by Aaron Reynolds and pictures by Peter Brown).
Jasper Rabbit is the little tyke in charge of this tale. He can't get enough of the carrots from Crackenhopper Field and in time convinces himself that there are creepy carrots following him around... everywhere.
The illustrations are just that little bit film noir and they work in tandem with the words to create a slightly spooky, unpredictably crackin' tale. Jasper Rabbit's road to gluttony is paved with paranoia and eventually he has to put an end to those creepy carrots once and for all.
thinks the three main carrots are hysterical and has a ritual of
inspecting the illustrated end papers with each read. I think it's a perfect
book to get you in the Halloween spirit.
And for an extra treat check out this awesome little film.
