Imogene's Antlersby David Small

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. . . .

My six year old granddaughter got this book out of the school library and read it over and over. It became her favorite book; so we now have our own copy. It is so ridiculous that it is funny. We have also purchased several other David Small books and they are all delightful and perfect for a beginning reader.
This is a wonderful all-ages treat. The illustrations are bright and colorful. The story will have kids laughing out loud. I highly recommend it for classrooms; students can follow the story with an art project in which they imagine themselves with some funny animal attributes.
My mother-in-law picked this one up at a second hand store. I had never heard of it, but I love the humor in it. My 2 1/2 year old loves it. She can't put it down.
my favorite childhood book, I love it and can't wait to read it to my children, if I ever have any. :)
We all enjoyed this book and read and reread it many times. Great story and great illustrations.
Oh, another one of my favorites! This is one of the best books in the world!!
IT WAS PRETTY GOOD
