The illustrator portrays a cheerful and happy rabbit enjoying his carrots without a care in the world – until he feels carrots are lurking behind him. Is the little rabbit imagining things or are the carrots plotting for revenge? The moment a reader picks up this book, the title and the illustrations on the cover suggest this book is a little creepy.

Jasper Rabbit loves chowing down on stolen carrots from Crackenhopper Field…until the carrots start following him. Or do they? Jasper thinks he sees the carrots lurking in the shadows of his bedroom, or looming up behind him in the bathroom mirror, or creeping after him (with a quiet "tunktunktunk") wherever he goes - but they're always gone when he takes a closer look. What's a paranoid rabbit to do? Find out in this clever, atmospheric, mock-horror story packed with kid-friendly thrills and a surprising, satisfying ending.

Lighting and shadows create a creepy feel reminiscent of old film in this monotone world invaded by orange carrots. These are no ordinary vegetables though, for they scare Jason rabbit with typical horror movie tactics including: suddenly disappearing, appearing as shadowy figures, and in a funny move, pretending to be the non-moving versions of themselves.
In an odd turn, the rabbit comes up with an unusual solution...a solution which was the intended result in the carrots' bigger scheme. Aside from this unexpected turn of events, the story makes for a nice blend of horror-based humour that both children and parents will enjoy.

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 out more details on a second, third, fortieth reading. A masterpiece of the scary/funny balance.

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 into . . . the carrot zone.

“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.”
