Simon is a very friendly, inquisitive, little spider who lives with his family in the garden of Mr and Mrs Wright's house. Simon really enjoys finding out about his surroundings and where better to explore than a lovely big leafy garden filled with flowers, bees, butterflies and all manner of fascinating and interesting things for Simon to find out about.
Previously, in Simon the Spider’s Adventure, Simon learnt an important lesson: always listen to what his mummy told him! Simon had found a way into Mr and Mrs Wright’s house and was very nearly caught with Mrs Wright’s rolling pin!
In this story Simon is enjoying a quiet stroll through the peaceful garden when he decides to have a little rest…Simon is just about to have a nap on a leaf lying in a sunny spot, when out pops a caterpillar from under the leaf that Simon had just climbed onto. Simon is fascinated by Charlie the Caterpillar’s story. Charlie tells Simon all about being a caterpillar and how they evolve into becoming beautiful butterflies. Has Simon found a friend?
