Jasper Rabbit loves to munch on nice, fresh carrots. Whenever he passes Crackenhopped Field, where the best carrots are grown, the little rabbit helps himself to a nice, succulent carrot or two. But then one day something weird happens. Jasper is convinced that the carrots are beginning to stalk him.

Even though his parents told him it was his imagination, Jasper was totally convinced that for some reason those creepy carrots were coming for him. Fortunately, the clever little rabbit came up with a way of reining in the those really weird carrots.

Not only is the solution to Jasperís problem funny, but there's a twist ending here that makes the whole picture book a hoot. Using orange and shades of grey and black for the illustrations, artist Peter Brown has created a stunning set of pictures to go with this amusing tale of creepy carrots.

With this non-traditional look at Halloween, Jasper Rabbit's misadventures could well become a favorite at storytime this time of year.
