In the meantime, Peter has once again teamed up with author Aaron Reynolds to bring you a new creep-tastic Halloween treat! In CREEPY PAIR OF UNDERWEAR!, the follow-up to Creepy Carrots!, Jasper Rabbit bravely deals with yet another familiar object behaving not quite as it should.

Creepy Pair of Underware

CREEPY PAIR OF UNDERWEAR is getting great buzz:

“Balances a really spooky premise with the hilarity that accompanies any mention of underwear… Perfect for those looking for a scary Halloween tale that won’t leave them with more fears than they started with.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“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.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“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!”—Booklist, starred review
