Creepy Carrots Storytime

October 31st - 3:00 pm

Come in costume for a special Story Time and craft session at Read Between the Lynes, just before the costume contest and trick-or-treating begin on the Square. We will read Creepy Carrots!by Aaron Reynolds and Peter Brown, and you’ll have a chance to make your very own creepy carrots. And who
knows, the characters might just jump off the page...

About the book:

In this Caldecott Honor–winning picture book, The Twilight Zone comes to the carrot patch as a rabbit fears his favorite treats are out to get him.

Jasper Rabbit loves carrots—especially Crackenhopper Field carrots. He eats them on the way to school.
He eats them going to Little League. He eats them walking home. Until the day the carrots start following him...or are they?

Celebrated artist Peter Brown’s stylish illustrations pair perfectly with Aaron Reynold’s text in this hilarious picture book that shows it’s all fun and games…until you get too greedy.
