My friend Amanda recently recommended Imogene's Antlers by David Small to me. I rushed to our library and was delighted to find a copy on the shelves!
The book was absolutely adorable and Juliet fell in love with it immediately. The story is about a girl who wakes up one morning sprouting antlers from her head! She is perfectly fine with it and enjoys hanging objects like donuts from them, but her mother is VERY disturbed.
I won't ruin the ending for you, but the antlers do go away and she wakes up with something else...
You all seem to like it when I post my "ugly crafts", so here's another one for you!
Juliet mentioned that she "would love a pair of antlers like Imogene's", so I set to work trying to make her some. I used cardboard and a wrapping paper tube. Oh yes. And A LOT of packing tape.
I made the headband a little too small, so it kept falling off, but after a few adjustments it fit just right. Juliet had fun running around the house and peeking in the mirror all afternoon.
I was happy to let her have her fun and then toss the contraption into the recycle bin that night!
(Sorry to have been missing for the past two days! Our internet service was out and it just returned. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!)
