Sick Simon

Illustrated by Dan Krall

About The Book

Sick Simon is about to learn that having a cold isn’t nearly as fun as he thought. (And also that he should wash his hands.) A clever book about learning what do (and not to do) during cold and flu season.

Simon is going to have the best week ever.
Who cares if he has a cold? And sneezes everywhere, and coughs on everyone, and touches everything.
Germs call him a hero!

Everyone else calls him…Sick Simon.
When will it end?
How far will he go?
Will the germs take over?
Or can Sick Simon learn to change his ways?
