I know this is far from a new book, but it's not a bit dated. I remembered reading and loving the humorous and charmingly illustrated story when I was a new reader, and now, twenty-two years later, my four-year-old has decided it's her new favorite book. Just a touch of the extraordinary presented in a very matter-of-fact, non-scary way.***wondering why all my reviews are five stars? Because I'm only reviewing my favorite books -- not every book I read. Consider a novel's presence on my bookshe [...]
I enjoyed this book because its ridiculous plot teaches a valuable lesson, which makes both the story and its theme more memorable for all who read it. Imogene's Antlers has a simple message: everyone is different, but even the things that people think are "weird" about you can be useful. If Imogene can use her antlers to help out around the house, then children can learn to be proud of the traits that make them unique and can positively impact themselves and others. The illustrations in this bo [...]
I read Small's affectingly sad memoir Stitches and had never read any of his children's illustrated books so when this one caught my eye at the library I thought I'd take a closer look at it and bring it home for the kids. This is my kind of kid book, with an edge to it, quirky, strange. A girl wakes up in the morning with elk antlers. What problems does that cause? Made me think of Sweet Tooth, that Jeff Lemire dystopian comic series, where the main kid has antlers… the comparison ends there, [...]
Today was the first time I'd ever read this book (and the second and third too). The boys thought is was "so funny". For some reason they think fainting is the height of humor and thought it was hilarious that the mom faints three times in the book. The illustrations are fantastic and the story is fun. They had a great time making up all the things that would happen to her in the following days. The best one was "nacho ears with salsa dripping from them.but it would hurt if someone tried to eat [...]

What a blast from the past!! I saw this off on the side of recommendations, but I hadn't thought about it in years. I need a re-read for a proper rating and review, but I do remember this fondly.
I think this story is pretty cute. It's simple and just plain odd. I can imagine a kid would get a kick out of it. It is a picture book, so of course there is no in depth explanation of how she got antlers. But as an adult, you've got to wonder how it happened and could it all be in her imagination or a dream?
I'm not sure why everyone adores this book, it was just kinda silly to me. But kids seem to love it. Considering how old this book is, the great part about it is how it feels current. It isn't dated at all.
Looking for a funny, laugh-out-loud picture book? Check out Imogene’s Antlers by David Small. It is SO funny, and has beautiful illustrations! It’s written and illustrated by David Small.The story goes into fantasy–a little girl, Imogene, wakes up one morning with antlers. At first she encounters some problems (getting dressed, getting out the door), but then she also discovers some fun–hanging donuts off the antlers, feeding birds that way, having her mother faint. Imogene clearly enjoy [...]
Wonderful having Kiersten read this one. And the ideaI loved it.5/11/10 & 5/13/10 This was a PERFECT read for preschool storytime. I don't know how I'd forgotten it before now. It was excellent on Tue. because the length and story were better choices than the other 2 I had picked. Thu. group was rather low-key, but I think they still liked seeing this girl with antlers.4/11/12 My opener of "That's Silly" theme, this definitely set the tone. I tend to have a younger preschool crowd, so some o [...]
In this quirky tale a girl wakes up one morning with antlers, the doctor and the principle are called to advise, her mother faints repeatedly, and her brother declares her a “miniature elk.” The antlers become quite useful as drying racks and candleholders. A huge hat is custom made to cover up the antlers but fails to meet the approval of mother. All is well the next morning as the antlers are gone but wait there’s a new surprise. David Small illustrates this tale in soft warm shades but [...]

I found a lovely 1985 edition of this book without any markings or damages whatsoever. Those who follow Mr. Hankins know that he is a huge David Small fan, and when David talked about his book in the new documentary, LIBRARY OF THE EARLY MIND, I jumped at the chance to find this book. Imogene awakes one morning to find that she has grown antlers on her head. The members of her extended family all have various responses. . d ultimately, creative solutions to Imogene's new head gear. Whimsical sto [...]
Mi-a fost interesant felul în care Imogene, o fetiță de vreo 10 ani, a reacționat la faptul că i-au crescut peste noapte ditamai coarne de cerb. A acceptat acest lucru ca pe o glumă, sau o aventură. Ca și metamorfoza de la sfârșit. Faza cu "going trough a door now took some thinking" e tare. De fapt, cu excepţia mamei care mereu leşină şi a directorului de şcoală care a privit urât, toată lumea din jur pare curioasă sau amuzată.
Those antlers are amazing. And Imogene keeps such a great attitude--I love the way she feeds the birds. I just wish I could ask David Small if her name should be pronounced Ima-jean or Ihm-o-jean. I don't know why, it just bugs me not knowing. I called her "Ihm-o-jean" forever and ever, and then I heard someone else read it the other way. Does anyone know David Small personally? Would you ask him for me?
This is a very funny story about a little girl who grows antlers. The narrative is simple and the illustrations are great. It has an old fashioned feel to it, which makes sense because it was written in 1945. Our youngest listened to this book read on audiocassette in the car four times straight and loved it.
The surprise ending really did it for me. Kind of like "Bark, George."
a funny story about a little girl who learns to be careful what she wishes for
Been a long time since I last read this one. Reissued for 25th anniversary of publication.
This was my read out loud book. I picked it because I thought the kids would get a catch out of a girl with antlers. It also made you think what will she do??
Life is easier when you make the most of what you've got.This girl named Imogene wakes up, finding that she has grown these massive antlers. Every time her mom sees her, she basically faints. They have the doctor come look at her, which, you know, is a reasonable thing. The first part of the story is basically the family trying to figure out why it happened. Her brother says, according to the encyclopedia, that she has turned into a rare form of miniature elk, which causes the mother to faint ag [...]
Summary: Imogene wakes up one day with a set of elk antlers. She goes about her day doing crazy things with them, her mother fainting at the sight, and then trying to cover them up. By the end of the story Imogene has lost her antlers when she wakes up the next morning, but realizes that she now has peacock feathers instead.Evaluation: I really like this story and how creative it is. It is definitely a story that will keep your students attention with them asking what will happen next and laughi [...]
This was one of my favorite children book my mother use to read to me, and something I learn to read on my own. It's a cute book explaining how Imogene learn how to deal with changes in her life and make the best of it. This something to teach children on how things can unexpectedly chance overnight.
imogene wakes up with antlers and then juts doesnt mind. her mother mind but imogene and the house staff and like yeah this is fine can i hang donuts on the prongs.loved the ending too after the antlers ^^
One day Imogene finds something very odd about her head. There are antlers on top! She tries to adapt to this new change in her life, but will they go away eventually? Or will they stay there forever?
Fun tale of a girl that wakes up with Antlers!
A reread for me. My biggest take-away from this book is how well-paced it is. So imaginative and worth rereading again and again.
Nice, funny. Only have slight age feeling as this book was illustrated long time ago.
It was nice (daughter loved it and read it about 6 times in 2 days)
I love the imagination behind this book, as well as the illustrations. :)
