Item description for Imogene's Antlers by David Small...

Overview
When Imogene wakes up one morning with antlers, she shrugs it off and continues with her daily routine--not so for her mother, who faints every time she sees her daughter's new feature. Reprint. Reading Rainbow Feature Book. Parents' Choice Award Book for Literature.

Publishers Description
Illus. in full color. Imogene awakens one morning to find she has grown antlers.
"Small maximizes the inherent humor of the absurd situation. Hilarious, with a subtle lesson in acceptance."--(starred) School Library Journal.

"Young Imogene wakes up one morning to find she has sprouted antlers. Unflappable, Imogene takes the whole thing in stride; the same cannot be said for her mother, who faints every time her daughter comes into view....The effervescent, softly colored illustrations incorporate all the humor inherent in the tale. A laugh-aloud read-aloud."--Booklist

"A dazzling attraction." --Publishers Weekly  
David Small grew up in Detroit, Michigan, studied art and English at Wayne State University, and completed his graduate studies in art at Yale University.

In addition to children's books, David makes editorial drawings for such publications asThe New York Timesand The Wall Street Journaland is a frequent contributor to many national magazines as well.  David also writes book reviews for The New York Times Book Review.

Although David always dreamed of being an artist, it was not until he was in his late thirties and had several works published that he began to say, proudly, I am an artist.

David and his wife, Sarah Stewart, now live in Mendon, Michigan, a town so small that you can whisper something on one side and be heard on the other.

Reviews - What do customers think about Imogene's Antlers?

As expeted  Feb 23, 2008
My daughter had been looking for this book for some time after seeing it on Reading Rainbow TV show. The book is fun for her (5 yrs old). Great buy at a great price.
 
One of the most beloved books EVER!!!  Nov 26, 2007
I have an autographed copy of this book, and from the moment I read of a little girl with antlers, I was hooked. Years later, this story still captured me, enough that when my husband asked me what we would name our new little kitten, I piped up with "Imogene!". It fits, believe it or not, some of the time! This book I talk about with all the childhood wonder and love, and reverence due to it. Its the most wonderful book to read to a child, and the ending is just as fun! Too bad David Small hasn't written another book to follow up! I'd buy it in a heartbeat!! I treasure this book and I CANNOT wait to read it to my children!
 
Even little Imogenes will love this book  Oct 19, 2007
This is a darling book! David Small has created such a lively story and pictures that my children have loved. We raised 4 kids who are now teenagers who fully enjoyed this book; they first saw it on Reading Rainbow. Now, we're starting over with a new baby who will undoubtedly wear out her copy of this book. As a former English teacher, I can say with authority that this is a childrens' classic and a must-have.
 
Cute book for preschoolers  Sep 27, 2007
Our Daughter loves this book!!! Her Daddy is a deer hunter so seeing a little girl grow antlers is really funny to her!!
 
Short on conflict  Sep 10, 2007
This book has received great reveiws far and wide. I hate to admit it, but I just don't see why. The protagonist, Imogene, wakes up with a set of antlers on her head. To many of us, this would be a big problem. But, Imogene doesn't seem to mind all that much. Her family, however, hates the whole idea. Now, in most children's story books, the protagonist is faced with a certain conflict and at the end of the story he/she has solved it and has grown somehow from the experience. In this story, Imogene isn't bothered by her problem and does nothing at all to solve it. In fact, the problem solves itself. She wakes up and voila, no more antlers. Instead, she had grown a new problem. (Another that she doesn't seem to mind.) In no way do I see that either Imogene or her family has grown or changed in any way. I admit, some of the situations are comical and in their own way pull the book along. But again, there is no solution to the problem and I have issue with that.
