The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal


Ernest is a rather large moose with a rather large problem. He is so big he can’t fit inside his book! What is a moose to do? 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? Featuring a surprise fold-out ending, children will love this very funny book by the Kate Greenaway Medal winning Catherine Rayner.

Very funny.
The Bookseller
Catherine's drawings of the large moose and his small friend with their ever-changing expressions are wonderful.
