Imogene's Antlers (Reading Rainbow)

by

Imogene's Antlers (Reading Rainbow) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One Thursday Imogene wakes up with a pair of antlers growing out of her head and causes a sensation wherever she goes.

Review:

"Small maximizes the inherent humor of the absurd situation. Hilarious, with a subtle lesson in acceptance." School Library Journal (starred review).

Review:

"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

Review:

"A dazzling attraction." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Illus. in full color. Imogene awakens one morning to find she has grown antlers.

About the Author

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 as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal and 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.
