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

"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

"A dazzling attraction." --Publishers Weekly
