Ernest the Elephant

By Anthony Browne
Illustrated by Anthony Browne

A poignant story about a baby elephant who gets lost in a mysterious jungle, from the acclaimed Kate Greenaway Medal-winning author-illustrator and former Children's Laureate.

Ernest is a happy baby elephant. But when his curiosity gets the better of him and he leaves the rest of his herd to explore the alluring and dangerous jungle, he becomes very lost indeed. Amongst the undergrowth, he meets a rude gorilla, a weary lion, an impolite hippo and an uncaring crocodile. Will anyone help Ernest find his way out of the jungle and home to his mum? From the international phenomenon, Anthony Browne, comes a heartfelt, visually stunning picture book, about finding help in unexpected places.

  • A tale about finding help where you least expect it – perfect for times when everyone could do with a little more support.
  • Anthony Browne is a former Children's Laureate and has won every major prize in children's illustration, including the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Hans Christian Andersen Award. He is an international bestseller: his books have been translated into 26 languages and have sold over 9 million copies around the world.
  • "Browne is an original... He has a brave determination to follow his own obsessions, and perhaps his masterpiece as an artist is the work that makes least concession to what others might expect to see in a children's book. There's a touch of genius to it." The Guardian
