I liked that the plot line kept you guessing. It would be a good book to introduce predictions and guessing what will happen next. We could also discuss conflict and resolution. I also enjoy that this is a very fun and silly book to read to small children. You also could read it as a break when teaching younger children about daily schedule because the book sort of follows Imogene's daily schedule as she tries to live with antlers.

This trade book was about a little girl named Imogene. Imogene woke up one morning with huge antlers on her head. She didn't care, she embraced having the antlers. Her mother tried to hide them underneath a hat, but it still didn't work. Eventually her antlers went away, but then she grew peacock feathers. I gave this book a four out of five stars because even though her antlers were unusual, she still did not care that she had them. The illustrations looked like they were done with colored pencils. There were not many bright colors until the peacock feathers. I thought the dull look went along with the story because the mother hated her antlers. I would use this book in a classroom if I was talking about self-esteem. Everyone is different, and you should be proud of how you look. ( )

Reminds me of a brief version of "I Wish That I Had Duck Feet" by Theo. LeSieg (Dr. Suess). Still a fun humorous read and we always love David Small's illustrations. ( )

I liked this book for several reasons. First, I thoroughly enjoyed the plot of the story because I found it to be very humorous. I also enjoyed the plot because it is very suspenseful. When I was reading the story I thought the conflict was solved and that the story was going to end in that regard. However, I was wrong as the author surprised the readers at the end. I also enjoyed the story because the illustrations truly help enhance the humor that the author presented in the story. For example, when Imogene wakes up with antlers her maid jokes about decorating her for Christmas and the illustration shows ornaments on her antlers. Finally, I liked the fact that Imogene accepted her difference despite the fact that she would now stand out from others. The overall message of the story is to accept any differences that you might have. ( )
