Summary: After a 35-year hiatus, Imogene from Imogene’s Antlers is back. This time, she wakes up each morning with something new: a giraffe’s neck, an elephant’s trunk, butterfly wings. She’s a good sport about it, though, and puts each new appendage to good use. With a long neck, she finds a lost football on top of a high desk and helps a kitten down from a tree. Her elephant’s trunk helps to water the garden, and of course, it’s fun to soar through the air as a butterfly. The stuffy adults aren’t sure what to do with her, and await her arrival each morning with trepidation. When Imogene surprises them all one morning by appearing as herself, her mother breathes a huge sigh of relief…until antlers pop out on her own head! 40 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: As in the original, there is lots of goofy fun to be had with both the story and the illustrations.
Cons: It’s unlikely Levar Burton will be prevailed upon to do a Reading Rainbow episode of this Imogene book.
