Summary:

Jasper Rabbit loves the juicy orange carrots that grow in Crackenhopper Field. He eats them every day, from morning to night. But one day, Jasper notices something strange: the carrots from Crackenhopper Field are following him. He hears them creeping behind him, and he sees them in the mirror while he’s brushing his teeth. Jasper can’t convince his parents that the creepy carrots are out to get him. Is everything in his imagination after all? Creepy Carrots is illustrated mostly in black and white, with splashes of bright orange for the carrots, lending the book the feel of an old-time monster movie. A perfect Halloween read!
