Creepy Carrots!: 02/02/15
Creepy Carrots! by Aaron Reynolds is a mashup between Peter Rabbit and your typical zombie story. Japser Rabbit loves the carrots that grow in the Crackenhopper fields. But there's a rumor that they are evil, monster carrots.
Like Nancy Raines Day's On a Windy Day, there's a monstrous version of the creeping carrots and then there's a reveal of which ordinary objects went to create the illusion of the carrots.
The monster pages are done in a comic book, horror style heavy on the orange and black — perfect for a Halloween read. The reveal pages are contrasted with their wider range of colors and almost pastel hues.
But as every horror story should, there's a twist at the end. Maybe, just maybe, there's some truth to Jasper's over-active imagination.
