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 Browns stylish illustrations pair perfectly with Aaron Reynolds text in this hilarious picture book that shows its all fun and gamesuntil you get too greedy.
"Brown’s panels--bordered in black, drawn in pencil, and digitally composed and colored--cleverly combine the mood of film noir with the low-tech look of early children’s television staging for an aesthetic that is atmospheric, but not overwhelming.... Panels in varying sizes and multiple perspectives keep pace with Reynolds’s tongue-in-cheek narrative.... This age-appropriate horror story takes children’s fears seriously and then offers them an escape through genuine comic relief." – School Library Journal
