Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Chucklers: Oxford Level 17: Simon Barbecue Synopsis

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. Chucklers is a series of funny novels, short stories, anthologies and comics that make reading a pleasure for 7-11 year olds. There is something for everyone in this varied collection which is packed with fantastic illustrations. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with children's reading development also available at The series is written by top children's authors and edited by award-winning author Jeremy Strong. The books are finely levelled, making it easy to match every child to the right book.
