From School Library Journal
"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

One reason we love the book is because it is funny. The book is funny because the underwear follow Jasper everywhere he goes! Also, the ending has a funny surprise.
Another reason we love the book is because it was interesting. We liked that the author used details from Creepy Carrots to make this book more interesting. Also, Jasper has to try many things to solve his problem.
Our opinion is that this book is a must read. We recommend that you also read Creepy Carrots! Glow buy them both!
Also I honestly think I would have easily enjoyed this book almost as much even if I had not read Creepy Carrots a thousand and one times.
As an aside: the central theme of this book is trying to be a "big rabbit". I enjoyed that it was something Jasper strove for but also struggled with.
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.

It's a great anytime read, and would be especially fantastic for a school reader during the month of Halloween.
The illustrations are great.
I wish the cover glowed, that would make it 100% perfect. As it is my 6 year old and 12 year old boys think it's funny and have asked for it every night since we received it.
Highly recommend for younger elementary school kids and preschoolers!
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!
