About The Book

Simon’s storytelling takes him all the way to the top of a mountain in this ninth book in The Not-So-Tiny Tales of Simon Seahorse chapter book series.

Simon has always loved a good story, but he’s never heard one quite like Sir Sheldon’s Mount Aquarius ascent. After his dad tells him the tale, Simon can’t wait to share it with his friends—with some embellishment, of course. But Simon gets so carried away he ends up announcing his own plans to climb the mountain! Simon immediately regrets the bold claim, but his friends are so excited for him, he can’t back down. Is Simon really about to face Mount Aquarius?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, The Not-so-Tiny Tales of Simon Seahorse chapter books are perfect for emerging readers.

About The Author
