Then, one day, Jasper had a brilliant idea to outsmart the creepy carrots...but you will need to read the book to discover Jasper’s grand plan and whether or not the carrots are truly creepy!
Peter Brown’s illustrations add drama of the story. The color palette consists of subtle gradations of black, white and gray along with touches of orange, which becomes reminiscent of film noir. Each illustration is framed in black adding to the cinematic aesthetic.
Creepy Carrots is a highly entertaining (and creepy) read! Recommended for ages 4 and up.
