Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2011

A useful book about friendship. A brilliant joke lies at the heart of prize-winning illustrator Catherine Rayner’s Ernest. Ernest is a LARGE Moose. So large that, even though he tries squashing and squeezing, he just can’t fit all of himself into a book. Luckily he has a little friend who comes up with a very clever idea… All readers will love the solution to the problem of how to fit a moose into a book!

Synopsis

Ernest by Catherine Rayner

Ernest is a rather large moose with a rather large problem. He is so big he can't fit inside his book. Luckily Ernest is also a very determined moose, and he and his little chipmunk friend aren't going to give up easily. Will they find a way for Ernest to fit in?

About the Author

Catherine Rayner

Catherine Rayner was born in Harrogate and now lives in Edinburgh. She has a BA Hons in Visual Communication and Illustration from Leeds College of Art and Edinburgh College of Art. Much of her inspiration – and occasionally modelling! – for her illustration comes from her pets: her horse Shannon, guinea pig Marvin, dog Ellie, cat Emma and two goldfish, Bruce and Sheila. Catherine was shortlisted for the Booktrust Early Years Award Best New Illustrator in 2006, and she won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 2009.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Prize winning illustrator Catherine Rayner has created stunning picture books introducing delightful characters including Harris, a hare with exceptionally large feet and Ernest, a moose who is determined to get himself into a book – no mean feat when you are too big to fit in the pages. Gorgeous, warmly coloured large scale pictures lie at the heart of Catherine’s work.
