" Bercerita tentang Imogene yang pas bangun tiba-tiba punya tanduk rusa dewasa di kepala. OMG ceritanya bikin ngaqaque. Pas bagian tanduk Imogene dicantelin donat, Babangse langsung ngerasa, damn, jadi kepengen punya tanduk juga. Kan seru ya, gantungin cemilan kesukaan di tanduk, berasa piknik terus dehhh! Ending-nya anjrit nggak nyangka dan bikin ngaqaque lagi. " said.

" I have been chuckling reading some of the other reviews about the meaning and message of the book. To me, it is just a silly story meant for entertainment. It is possible that I missed the point, but it is also possible those seeking meaning instead of seeing the silliness are the ones who are missing something. " said.

" Been a long time since I last read this one. Reissued for 25th anniversary of publication. " said.

" a funny story about a little girl who learns to be careful what she wishes for " said.

" 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. " said.

" 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? " said.

" 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. " said.

"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. . .and ultimately, creative solutions to Imogene's new head gear.

Whimsical story telling with Small's classic characterizations, Imogene's Antlers would make a nice picture book "ladder" to Kafka's THE METAMORPHOSIS.
" said.
