Book Description

6 Jun 2002
"What about growing horns then?" challenged Melanie. "I will then!" shouted Billy.

Immediately he has taken up the challenge to grow horns Billy Dexter passionately wished that he hadn't, after all he could only fail. However, the next morning Billy's head feels itchy and then no doubt about it, there are bumps on the head. Within a week the boy has the most splendid head of antlers ever. Everyone gets used to them - Billy and his friends, his parents and even his teacher and the head - but will the antlers stay for ever, or will Billy find a way to get rid of them? A charming and humorous story about the

power of the mind and daring to be different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, uplifting, and a positive influence 27 Jun 2004
Format:Paperback
I was brought up with this book, and read it several times a year. Within it's child pleasing story line of a boy who is able to grow antlers, purely because he is challenged to, after a teacher tells him he can do anything, is a kind and true message to all children (and adults for that matter) that when we focus our minds on it, we can do anything. Using the example of growing antlers makes this an entertaining bedtime story, as well as being uplifting for the parent reading it. The moral in this makes it more of a fable, purely fiction, but the message is there for all to see, and is one of the most positive influences a child will hear or read. Wonderful book, well worth the read, and illustrated by Quentin Blake's fun, spiky, drawings.
