Summary
"A young rabbit is frightened by his underwear"--
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Returning to their Caldecott Honor Book world of Creepy Carrots! (2012), Reynolds and Brown put young Jasper Rabbit through even creepier, more scream-inducing horror, now with a pair of glow-in-the-dark underpants that, like the cat in the famous song (or a number of horror staples), keep . . . coming . . . back. Jasper doesn't realize that his prized new undies glow, until the bedroom lights go out. His dismay quickly changes to terror after he stuffs them in the laundry hamper and wakes up wearing them. The underwear refuses to stay in the garbage can or a box mailed to China, and they even come back after being cut up into snippets. Featuring a grimacing monster face in the illustrations and a green glow made even more lurid by the solid black backgrounds, the scary skivvies seem to leap out at viewers with each page turn. But then, when Jasper finally does at last find a way to dispose of them, the utter darkness in his room sparks a change of heart and a trip back to the local undie emporium. This strikes the ideal balance between frightening and hilarious, and like the underwear itself, readers are guaranteed to keep coming back for this storytime platinum!--Peters, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Five years after the Caldecott Honor-winning Creepy Carrots!, Jasper Rabbit returns, and he's being frightened by something equally improbable: the green undies he insisted his mother buy for him. With their "ghoulish, greenish glow" and a stitched and bolted face à la Frankenstein's monster, these tighty not-so-whities start keeping Jasper up at night, and nothing-not even throwing them away or mailing them to China-can prevent them from returning to his bedroom. Once again, Reynolds and Brown are in perfect comedic synch as they channel the surprises and creeping dread of a thriller. Brown's noir-style b&w illustrations make the most of the premise, and the innate absurdity of being afraid of one's undergarments will be a surefire winner with many kids. Ages 4-8.
