Jasper Rabbit loves carrots, and there’s a whole bunch of them in Crackenhopper Field, free for the taking. Every day, Jasper pulls the crisp, yummy carrots from the ground to eat his fill, until the day he notices that some not‑so‑happy carrots are following him! No one else can see them except for a very concerned Jasper, who in the end seals up Crackenhopper Field behind a moat and a wall, much to the delight of the angry carrots, which can now live in peace.
Peter Brown’s illustrations are delightfully scary, highlighted by the creepy black, gray and white tones of Jasper’s world, with the bright orange of the outraged carrots the only color. The suspense‑building text coupled with the humorously drawn carrots make this title an ideal choice for younger children looking for a scary story.Check Availability
