* "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 * May 15, 2017 *
"Reynolds dives even farther into elementary-grade horror here, balancing nicely between humorous and haunting in tone and events....Young horror fans will fall immediately in love with the terrifying undies and hope that accompanying merch is in the works." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books * July/August 2017 *
* "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 * July 2017 *
* "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." -- Publisher's Weekly - starred review * July 17, 2017 *
"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 * August 2017 *
"Humorous text...captures Jasper's age-appropriate not-quite-a-big-kid dilemma. Brown's noirish...illustrations-black, white, gray, and Day-Glo green-heighten both the silliness and the spookiness that are on display in equal measure."
-- The Horn Book * September/October 2017 *
