Creepy Pair of Underwear!

written by Aaron Reynolds
illustrated by Peter Brown

Jasper Rabbit is NOT a little bunny anymore. He’s not afraid of the dark, and he’s definitely not afraid of something as silly as underwear. But when the lights go out, suddenly his new big rabbit underwear glows in the dark. A ghoulish, greenish glow. If Jasper didn’t know any better he’d say his undies were a little, well, creepy. Jasper’s not scared obviously, he’s just done with creepy underwear. But after trying everything to get rid of them, they keep coming back!


“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

“First introduced in Creepy Carrots, Jasper’s antics are equally humorous and appropriately but safely spooky. VERDICT An enjoyable and comfortably spine-tingling picture book for a Halloween or any day storytime.”—School Library Journal

“Young horror fans will immediately in love with the terrifying undies.”—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
