“Be scared -- be VERY scared -- of this funny, inventive tale of one carrot-lovin' rabbit who started having carrots follow his every move. Who knew that some crisp, crunchy orange vegetable could be so sinister? The twist at the end is satisfyingly good. Carrot cake anyone?”
— Maureen Palacios, Once Upon a Time, Montrose, CA

Description


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.

Praise For…


"Brown’s panels–bordered in black, drawn in pencil, and digitally composed and colored–cleverly combine the mood of film noir with the low-tech look of early children’s television staging for an aesthetic that is atmospheric, but not overwhelming.... Panels in varying sizes and multiple perspectives keep pace with Reynolds’s tongue-in-cheek narrative.... This age-appropriate horror story takes children’s fears seriously and then offers them an escape through genuine comic relief."--School Library Journal

* "Serve this superbly designed title to all who relish slightly scary stories."--Kirkus Reviews in a STARRED review

* "A spot-on parody of a paranoid thriller...."--Publishers Weekly in a starred review
