Editorial Reviews

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 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)

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a cute book for the kiddos!
By Jen H. on November 13, 2017
This book is a big hit in our house with our three and five-year-old boys! They love it so much that I even surprised them with their very own pair that I created with some glow-in-the-dark paint, a fabric marker and some whitey tighties!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular artwork by Peter Brown and a really great story about growing up
By Juan Calvo on January 20, 2019
I am always on the lookout for children’s books that have the elusive combination of great artwork and great stories. Usually you get one or the other, but not both. My daughter recently came home with a book from the library with stunning color block artwork, the kind that you could easily rip out and frame. The writing though, was so impossibly difficult and the story just so peculiar (and not in a good way) that I promptly returned it. Creepy Pair of Underwear by Aaron Reynolds with artwork by Peter Brown is the exception—it has a really interesting story, written in such a way that it makes for great bedtime reading, and fabulous illustrations.

Jasper the rabbit on an outing with his mother, purchases a glorious pair of creepy underwear. He spends most of the rest of the book trying to get rid of the persistently glowing briefs.

My nine-year-old loved that the story was about underwear and that there was a bit of scare to it. It’s also very silly—always an appealing quality in a children’s book. The black and white and green glowing artwork really makes this book pretty spectacular. Peter Brown uses his black and white illustrations of the story as a backdrop for interjecting the green glow of the menacing, but kooky underwear. Without the illustrations—which remind me of another of my favorite children’s book artists, Scott Magoon—this book wouldn’t have the same impact even though the narrative of Jasper the Rabbit is so endearing. In particular there is a constant green glow (the only color in the book) that reflects upon anything that is white including the bed sheets in Jasper’s room and the envelope that he stuffs the underwear into.

Even the terrified expression that appears on Jasper’s face throughout the book, is painted an eerie dayglow green. There are two glossy black back-to-back pages that open up where Reynolds and Brown demonstrate the state of darkness in Jasper’s room—a really simple but great effect.

Creepy Pair is a great story about growing up. It’s got the right humor angle for young readers and even gives a nod to another Reynolds and Brown collaboration, Creepy Carrots, which is next on our reading list.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is hilarious (although not as good as original)
By Dominic T. Sedillo on October 23, 2019
I LOVED "Creepy Carrots". This book is a nice follow-up. I will admit I don't enjoy it as much as the original. The original has a great ending and a great premise that makes sense.

The premise is silly, and in-line with the previous book, and is cleverly executed. I do enjoy it, but I just don't enjoy it as much.

The artwork is great and I love the minimal color scheme. HIGH RECOMMEND!
