Earphones Award Winner

Narrator James Naughton uses his considerable skills to heighten the suspenseful mood of this story. Carrot-loving Jasper Rabbit nourishes his craving several times each day from the luscious supply in Crackenhopper Field. But the day comes when he starts to hear strange sounds behind him but sees nothing when he whirls around. Could the carrots be after him? There’s always a tone of mystery in Naughton’s voice. He quickly travels his vocal register, for example, as a previously calm Jasper cries desperately for his mom when he suddenly thinks carrots are in their shed. Naughton draws out his words for emphasis, such as the slow and sinister “tunk, tunk” of carrots creeping along. Music underscores the mystery of Jasper’s story. A.R.
