    Sometimes too much of a good thing can be a bad thing carrots in this case Jasper gets creative and finds a way to put the situation of the creepy carrots back in his control Just scary enough for younger children, the illustrations really help make this story Has potential to be a lesson in not letting fear get the best of you.

    A children s librarian is half media specialist, half psychic It isn t enough to have to know the books in your collection You have to know what that pint sized patron standing before you REALLY

books in your collection You have to know what that pint sized patron standing before you REALLY wants when they say they want a scary book For a while there I had this very persistent three year old who would beg me for scary fare and wait as I dutifully pulled picture book after picture book for him After a while I d begin to wonder what would happen if I actually gave him what he said he wanted What if I d handed him Alan Schwartz s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Would it have scarred him for life Fortunately the shelves of your average children s room abound with titles that are scary enough for a small fry The trick is to find something that manages to balance the funny and the frightening in equal measures, never overplaying its hand Had Creepy Carrotsby Aaron Reynolds been available when I met that kid, it would have been the first thing I d have pulled from the shelf With pitch perfect illustration by the increasingly talented Peter Brown, this beautifully shaded creation is a great example of how to get the tone of a picture book exactly right Strange and wonderful and weird in all the right places.Jasper Rabbit You average everyday hare Jasper has a penchant for carrots Stands to reason He s a rabbit Every day he plucks them from the Crackenhopper Field Never has a care in the world either But one day Jasper has a suspicion Carrots in his tummy he understands, but carrots in his bathtub In his bedroom In the tool shed Seems that Jasper is being stalked by vegetation Without realizing it, Jasper Rabbit is crossed out of his everyday existence and intothe carrot zone.Before we get into anything else, let s talk text As difficult as it may be, I tried reading this book without paying attention to the accompanying illustrations no small feat to get a sense of what author Aaron Reynolds is doing here What I discovered when I went through it on a word alone basis was that Reynolds has penned a really good readaloud There s a great inherent drama to lines like, Jasper was about to help himself to a victory snack. when he heard it The soft sinister. tunktunktunk of carrots creeping He turned but there was nothing there This passage is just begging to be read aloud with Vincent Price esque cadences The inherent ridiculousness of creeping carrots being scary is paired with the rather effective tunktunktunk sound It reminded me of the sound of the dead son in that old short story The Monkey s Paw It speaks of unnatural slowness, always creepy to kids who move at lightning speeds themselves Reading this book you hit that dichotomy of potentially frightening and potentially funny over and over until, at last, you reach the end The book s finale is one of those twist endings that some kids will get while others just enjoy the visuals I love a picture book with a good twist, and so do child audiences Particularly when they don t see where the story is going.It s interesting that though Reynolds has specialized in child lit noir for years his Joey Fly Private Eye comic books practically typify the genre there s nothing ostensibly noir ish about the text for Creepy CarrotsJust the same, Peter Brown saw something atmospheric there to be plundered The decision was the right one and Brown cleverly culled from not a single noir source but from many There are hints of Hitchcock, Wells, Twilight Zone, and other influences Vertigo being the most direct reference of them all The result is a picture of psychosis running rampant Kids are naturally afraid that there might be monsters under their beds, so they understand paranoia Only a few books think to take advantage of that fact Meet one of the few.Atmospheric black and white, when done right, yields picture book gold Think about the Caldecott Honor winner The Spider and the Fly as illustrated in a 1920s movie house style by Tony DiTerlizzi Brown s work isn t wholly black and white, of course He allows himself a single color orange This is a deep dark orange though One that goes rather well with the man s copious shading Previous Brown books like The Curious Garden had fun with the borders, filling them with creeping smog around the edges In Creepy Carrotsthe borders now teem with encroaching darkness Each picture is enclosed in a black border that seeps a foglike substance into the images It s like watching a television show or a movie where you know something s gonna get the hero sometime You just don t know when.Fair play to Brown with his carrots too As you can see from the cover alone, he takes care to make them funny and scary all at once They have a random smattering of gappy teeth like jack o lanterns, crossed eyes, and a variety of tops They re like The Three Stooges in vegetable form, onlyintimidating Brown also makes the rather interesting decision to give much of this book a cutout feel His style consists of drawing in pencil on paper and then digitally composing and coloring his images The result is that he can give his scenes some real depth That first shot of Jasper sitting merrily amongst the carrots really makes it look as if he s cut out from the scene, nearer the audience, much like the tufts of the trees behind him And finally there s Jasper himself You d think the book would just feature the regular emotions like happy and frightened, but Brown does a lotthan that The scene where Jasper laughs at himself for being so ridiculous to think that the carrots were following him is a triumph of mixed emotions Worried eyes, smiling mouth, uncertain eyebrows, and hubris filled ears Beautiful stuff.Though it has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween, thanks to its black, white, and orange palette to say nothing of its subject matter expect to see this book read aloud in many a Halloween storytime for years and years to come There are worse fates I would simply remind everybody that scary books aren t seasonal That kid who requested them of me asked me for them month after month, never tiring of what I put before him Kids love to be scared within the safety of their parents arms Happy endings and gorgeous art are just a nice plus at that point More fun than it deserves to be and thrilling to the core, expect to be asked to read this one over and over again and to willingly acquiesce so that you can pick outdetails on a second, third, fortieth reading A masterpiece of the scary funny balance.For ages 4 8

    Although I usually do not tend to all that much appreciate creepily illustrated picture books, I have quite enjoyed if not even loved Aaron Reynolds Creepy Carrots, as both the author s presented narrative and Peter Brown s accompanying illustrations are just potentially uncanny enough to be a tiny bit but not overly and exaggeratingly frightening And yes, indeed, for those of us who tend to like irony and also have a rather warped and perverse sense of humour, Creepy Carrots is truly absolute Although I usually do not tend to all that much appreciate creepily illustrated picture books, I have quite enjoyed if not even loved Aaron Reynolds Creepy Carrots, as both the author s presented narrative and Peter Brown s accompanying illustrations are just potentially uncanny enough to be a tiny bit but not overly and exaggeratingly frightening And yes, indeed, for those of us who tend to like irony and also have a rather warped and perverse sense of humour, Creepy Carrots is truly absolutely delicious and yes, a pun is most definitely intended here , as I for one totally howled with laughter at the ending, at how the carrots have actively gotten ultra consumer Jasper Rabbit to build an enclosure, not only sealing the carrots off from being able to leave Crackenhopper Field and stalking Jasper , butimportantly and necessary for the carrots, to keep Jasper Rabbit and his grasping hands and chomping teeth away from them on a permanent basis Now as to Peter Brown s Caldecott Honour winning accompanying illustrations, I really have ended up very much and massively enjoying them, and no, I did not really ever find the illustrations all that potentially uncanny for instead of finding Brown s pictures problematic in any manner, I have found them both expressive and fun, and I was and remain pleasantly in awe at how much minute detail can be so gloriously expressed with just shades of black, white, grey and of course, carrot orange And with regard to a potential creep out factor, in many ways, Jasper Rabbit with his buck toothed open mouth and constant grasping and consumption of carrots, carrots and evercarrots actually and indeed has felt considerablyuncanny and weird to and for me than the carrots, than the creepy and stalking carrots for considering how often Jasper consumes carrots and how regularly he overindulges in carrots, how often he basically ransacks Crackenhopper Field, I certainly have found myself generally and heartily cheering for the carrots Creepy Carrots is perfect for Halloween especially as a read aloud for sensitive children who might findintensely gruesome picture books a bit too much to handle , but it is also, in my opinion, a fun and entertaining cautionary tale against overconsumption with the necessary caveat, of course, that some children might well and slyly attempt to use Creepy Carrots as a readymade excuse to refuse to eat their vegetables

    Creepy Carrots are a tasty treat 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 , a brilliant new picture book by Aaron Reynolds and Peter Brown Creep Creepy Carrots are a tasty treat 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 , a brilliant new picture book by Aaron Reynolds and Peter Brown 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 softsinistertunktunktunk 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

    The illustrations are the star of this book for me I love the black white with only the color orange making an appearance on each page The story was okay things aren t what they seem and there is nothing to be afraid of, etc.

    Hm I hope the youngsters reading this know that it s satire, that there really aren t monsters in closet, that carrots are a good food But those concerns don t lower my rating I think it s rather brilliant in its way, and I love the lesson about two sides to every story I m rounding down from 3.5 stars because I wanted just a bit , maybedetails in the pictures, maybe a second small story in the pictures that doesn t show in the text, maybecharacters, maybe foreshadowing S Hm I hope the youngsters reading this know that it s satire, that there really aren t monsters in closet, that carrots are a good food But those concerns don t lower my rating I think it s rather brilliant in its way, and I love the lesson about two sides to every story I m rounding down from 3.5 stars because I wanted just a bit , maybedetails in the pictures, maybe a second small story in the pictures that doesn t show in the text, maybecharacters, maybe foreshadowing Still, I bet this is popular, and deservedly so..Second read Dec 17 So, psychological horror a la The Yellow Wallpaper In almost every picture, there s something innocent that is making Jasper think he s seeing creepy carrots are they real, or not.Third read, for group, Oct 18 Still not crazy about it But apparently it is popular I had to wait on a hold for this

    I read this library book to little 5 year old Abby I thought it was hilarious but she didn t like it Some of the ideas were way beyond a young child s level of knowledge and the creepy carrots kind of creeped her out I don t know, perhaps this may be a book better suited for young boys or girls who like scary stories.
