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!
