Synopsis: Every time Jasper Rabbit passes the carrots in Crackenhopper Field, he munches on some. But is it his imagination or have the carrots started to follow him?
Rating: *** (3-star scale)
Comments:A good book for Halloween season. I read this one with my grandson, and he called the ending before I did. (I won’t spoil it here.)
I’m not normally a fan of “thriller” children’s books, but this one ended well enough that I enjoyed it. The pictures are mostly black, gray, and orange, and there’s an ominous suspenseful feeling throughout. I think little boys, especially, will enjoy this one.
Would you recommend this to a friend?Yes. If they have no problem with a slightly scary plot.
