Ernie's problem -
Ernie has a problem, everything he daydreams of comes true. His parents are concerned about him so they took Ernie to see the doctor who examines Ernie's active imagination. Pictured are, left to right, Tessa Vawn, Sarah Schwebach, Austin Hamilton and Brady Lundquist.
Active imagination -
One of Ernie's first "illucinations" while at the doctor's office was that of bad soldiers, led by Abbie Plum, center, trying to take Ernie away from his parents.
Heading to the fair -
While attending a local fair, Ernie's active imagination starts to act up while he is watching a boxing match.
Boxing Auntie May -
While watching a boxing match at the local fair, Ernie starts to imagine his Auntie May (Shayla Hargar) going one-on-one with Kid Saracen (Calvin Chalstrom). Luckily for Auntie May, she has a strong left hook.
"Quiet in the library" is what the Library Attendant (Brenten Barglof) wants while he writes. Ernie, however, had different plans for the attendant.
Top of the mountain-
Not liking being told to be quiet while at the library, Ernie imagines the Library Attendant (Brenten Barglof) being transported to the top of a mountain - but Ernie's father (Brady Lundquist) helps the young man down while the Librarian (Skyla Hargar) watches with great concern.
