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.

Catherine Rayner studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art. She fell in love with the city and still lives there with a small menagerie of creatures including Shannon the horse, Ena the cat and a goldfish called Sheila, all of whom inspire her artwork. In 2008 Catherine was selected as one of the Ten Best New Illustrators for Booktrust's Big Picture Campaign and won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 2009 for HARRIS FINDS HIS FEET (Little Tiger Press).

This is the story of Ernest the Moose and his efforts to fit inside the book. He squeezes and squashes but of course he’s still too big. Ernest’s solution to his problem (which I won’t ruin for you) is deeply satisfying.
