Margo's Musings: What's Creepy About Underwear?



Here in Connecticut, the leaves are starting to change color and the air is getting a bit chillier.  Halloween decorations have started to adorn houses and stores- helping us all get into the fall spirit. Last year my little sister, Margo, was drawn to Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds. So I knew as soon as I saw Creepy Pair of Underwear by the same author that it would be the perfect read for this time of year. I have to admit- I was curious about how underwear was going to turn out to be creepy.


Jasper Rabbit returns again in this sequel and he seems to be over his fear of carrots after the plan he devised to get rid of them in the first book. The story begins when Jasper convinces his mom that he wants a pair of creepy underwear he sees on display at the store. Once at home he realizes that maybe his underwear is a little creepier than he had first thought, and he decides to get rid of them. Of course, he isn’t scared or anything. Jasper’s just done with creepy underwear. But, when the underwear keeps showing up, he knows he must take drastic measures. What should he do?  Is there really something to be scared about? You’ll  be turning the pages to find out!
Margo and I loved that the story is a little creepy, but also very silly. I mean, being scared of underwear? Hilarious! The faces on the underwear and the expressions on Jasper’s face had us cracking up. Definitely a great addition to our favorite Halloween and fall reads. Since it isn’t technically a Halloween story- it can be enjoyed by kids and adults throughout the year.

I knew Margo would want her own pair of creepy underwear, and we are on the hunt for some. But, for now she is happy with the Halloween shirts my mom got her. She keeps pointing at her shirt and saying “creepy” and cracking up. So, maybe it’s a good thing we haven’t found those spooky underwear yet.

Has anyone else read Creepy Pair of Underwear? Or have you read another book by Aaron Reynolds? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy reading!

  4. Hi DMS - this sounds like loads of fun ... I'm sure Creepy Underwear will bring huge amounts of laughter from anyone who reads the story with their parents or littlies. Love the thought of it ... good to tease one's siblings with those sorts of ideas and get them cringing ... cheers Hilary
