Creepy Carrots
by Aaron Reynolds
, illustrated by Peter Brown
Caldecott Honor Book 2013

Jasper Rabbit loves loves loves carrots! He often visits Crackenhopper Field take the yummiest carrots for his best nibbles. After all, they are free! Jasper couldn't get enough carrots ... until carrots began to FOLLOW him!

It all started after his team won a big game. He decided to dig in for a victory treat when he first heard the soft, strange, sinister noises. It was the sound of carrots creeping up behind him. Is he dreaming? Is it his imagination? What would you do? Jasper ran! Jasper told his mom! Jasper told his dad! They could not find any creepy carrots anywhere. But Jasper kept seeing them! They were following him.

Finally, he decided to be courageous. He got a wild idea! But would it work?

“A spot-on parody of a paranoid thriller…”
