An oldie but a goodie, Imogene’s Antlers still delivers a creative, entertaining story after being published 32 years old ago.
Opening line: “On Thursday, when Imogene woke up she found she had grown antlers.”
While family and friends help to rid Imogene of her antlers, Imogene takes a different approach and uses her antlers for other purposes.
Watch for the clever story ending.
