Creepy Carrots

Caldecott Honor award winning, Creepy Carrots is the perfect spooky tale for little ones. Jasper Rabbit can't get enough carrots from Crackenhopper Field, until one day, the carrots start to stalk our fearless eater! Is it his imagination or is something else afoot?! Read this one aloud by flashlight and have children look for all the things that Jasper Rabbit thinks are carrots stalking his every move! Stark black and white illustrations with contrasting carrot colors make spotting the villainous veggies fun! Just right for children who love stories that go "munch" in the night!
