Abstract:

Simon, the little boy with impossible dreams, has charmed children around the world. Simon books have won The Governor General's Literary Award for Illustration in Canada and the Owl Prize in Japan; and were chosen for the prestigious Illustrators Exhibit in Bologna, Italy. The ever-imaginative little character, Simon, dreams of being the ringmaster of a circus. In a cardboard box he creates a circus with his animal friends, but his efforts to stage the show are frustrated. When he acts as lion tamer to a paper lion, a goat tries to eat the star attraction. When he tries to walk a tightrope, he is foiled by a flock of tame birds. As usual his sensible friend, Marlene, comes to the rescue. Her common-sense advice saves the day and Simon creates a circus that will never be forgotten.
