Imogene wakes up one morning to discover that something is a little different. Something, is in fact very different because over night Imogene has grown antlers! Imogene seems to adjust to the new change in her appearance easily and even decides to make the best to her newly grown antlers by piling donuts on them. Even though Imogene has quickly learned to find the best of the situation, her mother responds less favorably and passes out when Imogene and her antlers enter a room.
The tale is a subtle reference to acceptance, tolerance and being comfortable in one's own skin. It's a great little lesson within a fun little story. The story is quick and short making it an easy read for young readers and the perfect pick for a fast bedtime read for non-readers. More inquisitive readers may be left with questions that the book does not cover such as why exactly Imogene awoke to find herself with a set of antlers or if Imogene's mother did ever come to terms with Imogene's new look.
