Picture Book Review: Creepy Carrots
Written by: Aaron Reynolds
Illustrated by: Peter Brown
Published by: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2012
Although Aaron Reynolds has written many children's books, this was our first read of his. In this story Jasper Rabbit loves carrots so much that he keeps eating them from Crackenhopper Field, where the fattest and crispest carrots grow. That is until Jasper thinks that they are following him. Now he sees creepy carrots everywhere - in the bathroom, in the shed, under the bed, etc. Are they real or is it just his imagination?! The illustrations in this story are in shades of black, white, and gray with orange carrots which helps add to the "creepiness" of the book. The kids seemed to enjoy this book more than I did.
This book was borrowed from the library.
Family Rating: 1 thumb up.
