David Small's dryly comic story of a little girl who wakes one morning to discover she has grown antlers has delighted children since it was first published 15 years ago. Now reissued in a sparkling oversize format, this classic is ready for a whole new audience.
The family doctor, the school principal, and even Imogene's know-it-all brother, Norman, fail to resolve her dilemma. Imogene, the cook, and the kitchen maid, however, make the best of things, finding unusual uses for Imogene's new horns. Meanwhile, the
problem appears to be solved when Imogene awakes the next morning antler-free.
But the family (and the reader) are in for a surprise when Imogene comes down to breakfast. . . .

Review: Imogene's Antlers

User Review  - Rosa Cline - Goodreads

This was a silly book.... about a little girl waking up to have antlers on her head and her family trying to adjust to it. I personally didn't like it and my 2 year old granddaughter didn't much care for it either. She did enjoy the illustrations. Read full review
