Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Chucklers: Oxford Level 17: Simon Barbecue
Simon is a legend in his own lifetime. There's nothing he won't do. Parachuting into the Amazon and finding his way home - no problem. Scaling mountains - all in a day's work. But reading between the lines, it becomes very clear that Simon's self-confidence far outstrips his survivial skills, and that spending the night in a local garden centre isn't sufficient preparation for being parachuted into the Amazon... The book is made up of three short stories about the
heroic, hapless Simon, all of which he survives in spite of himself.
