Jasper Rabbit loves carrots—especially Crackenhopper Field carrots. He eats them on the way to school. He eats them on his way to Little League. He eats them walking home. Then one day, as Jasper is tugging a carrot out of the ground, he hears a noise: a soft, spine-tingling tunktunktunk. It sounds like carrots creeping up behind him!

When he turns around, the carrots are harmlessly poking out of the ground, just like always. But soon these humble root vegetables are following Jasper everywhere. They appear in the bathroom mirror while he's brushing his teeth. They peer out of windows as he walks down the street. And scariest of all, he hears their carroty breathing in his bedroom late at night. What do these creepy carrots want with Jasper? And can he figure out how to put them underground for good…or will he become a snack himself?

Peter Brown's illustrations mix fresh humor with the feel of classic TV, while Aaron Reynolds's story serves up sly humor and a satisfying twist, making this award winner an exceptionally tasty treat.
