    What is the scariest vegetable of all time? Broccoli? Rutabaga

    What is the scariest vegetable of all time? Broccoli? Rutabaga? Black
    olives, perhaps? Kids have been debating this question for centuries.
    If you asked Jasper Rabbit, however, he would tell you that you’re
    barking up the wrong produce aisle. Everyone knows that the scariest
    vegetable of all time is any vegetable that follows you home. At least
    everyone knows this who has read Creepy Carrots! Creepy Carrots!
    chronicles the harrowing journey of Jasper Rabbit, a young bunny whose
    greed for carrots proves to be his own undoing. Jasper loves carrots.
    He can’t get enough of them, especially the ones from Crackenhopper
    field. But one day, as Jasper is about to help himself to another
    snack, he hears it – “The soft . . . sinister . . . tunktunktunk of
    carrots creeping.” From there it goes from bad to worse. Paranoid
    Jasper sees the creeping carrots everywhere: in his bathtub, in the
    garden shed and even in his bedroom at night. Or does he? Every time
    a grown up enters the picture it seems that Jasper is just suffering
    from an overactive imagination. There’s nothing to be worried about or
    so it seems. Is Jasper crazy or are the vegetables really out to get
    him? That is the sheer joy of reading Creepy Carrots! It keeps you
    guessing until the very satisfying end. Reynolds’ tight text coupled
    with Brown’s ominous black and white (and orange) drawings strike the
    perfect almost spooky tone for 4-8 year olds. It’s sure to entertain
    any kids who love a little moody mystery in their picture books.
    Brown’s illustrations of the carrots are certainly creepy, but probably
    not genuinely scary except to the most sensitive of younger kids. The
    exaggerated camera angles and shadowy drawings contrast nicely with the
    soft, cuddly images of Jasper, creating what feels like a
    tongue-in-cheek Twilight Zone for kids. Speaking of which, fans of this
    book will also want to check out Peter Brown’s Vimeo video, the Creepy
    Carrots Zone, which chronicles the old movies and TV shows Brown watched
    to nail the right look for Jasper’s tale. Guess what, Peter? It
    worked. Not only is this book a blast, but it would make a great read
    for parents who want an entertaining excuse to talk about their child’s
    fears, greed or even the impact we have on the environment. But for
    those who are simply looking for a playful story with cool visuals,
    Creepy Carrots! does not disappoint.

    New Classic!

    Children ages 2 thru 6 and their parents will love this clever, entertaining and easy-to-understand tale, which even has a touch of "good values" thrown in to the mix. Frankly, it's so good, I'm wondering why it didn't WIN the Caldecott.
