Creepy Carrots

CCarrotsCreepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown is one of those fun books where the images and words are telling different stories…or are they? I love the idea of the story–Jasper Rabbit can’t get enough carrots…until they start following him. This 2013 Caldecott honor book was published by Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers in 2012. (Thanks to editor Dani Young for introducing me to this book last fall!)
Looking at author Aaron Reynold’s website, I see I need to read more of his books. Just by reading the titles, it’s obvious that his sense of humor extends beyond one title.
Illustrator Peter Brown has a vimeo on how he created the art. Visit his website at I was first introduced to Peter’s fabulously fun art with the book Chowder (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2007).
On either the illustrator or author website, you can see listings of the many awards and lists where this book is included.
