About The Book

Simon and Olive are best friends, and no one can get in the way…right? Find out in the fourth book in The Not-So-Tiny Tales of Simon Seahorse chapter book series.

School’s out for the summer and Simon Seahorse has already thought of a million exciting things to do. But then he learns he has to spend the first two weeks of his vacation back in school! The good thing is, his best friend, Olive Octopus, will be there too. But when Olive becomes buddies with Cam Crab, bonding over their love of facts, Simon begins to wonder where he and his stories fit in. Is Olive still his best friend, or has she had enough of his tall tales?

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.
