About the Book

Simon’s latest scheme is to gain everlasting fame and glory by winning the school talent show. What stands in his way? A lot. There’s the fact he doesn’t sing, dance, or play a musical instrument. There’s Stacy and her distracting brown eyes. There’s the evil Mike McApline and his cronies. And last, but certainly not least, is the aged Mrs. Anaand who insists on bombarding Simon and his friends with dangerously hard muffins while they rehearse their act. Utter humiliation is looking a lot more likely than fame and glory for Simon’s band, The Groovy Guys.

This hilarious chapter book features chapter illustrations, pages from Simon’s secret notebook, and a glossary.
