Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This fifteen-year-old treasure gets a well-deserved polishing in this reissue as an oversize picture book. A lucky new generation of young readers will get to meet title character Imogene, who is far more delighted than the rest of her family when she wakes up one morning sporting a full rack of antlers. Her mother faints, her brother conducts investigatory research, the doctor examines and the principal frowns disapprovingly. But it is the cook and the irrepressible Imogene herself who find innovative and beneficial applications for her new headgear. Enchanting and whimsical in both narrative and watercolor illustration, David Small's story is a classic that invites child and adult readers alike to celebrate difference, diversity, and downright silliness! 2000 (orig. 1985), Crown Publishers/Random House, $17.99 and $15.95. Ages 5 to 10. Reviewer: Judy Katsh
