The story is about a little kid named Simon that did what the animals told him to do. A dog said, "I bet you can't growl." then Simon growled. Then he saw a cat. The cat said, "I bet you can't stretch", and Simon stretched a short stretch. Then he came to a tiger who said "I bet you can't jump." Simon jumped a short jump, then a bigger jump that impressed the tiger.

My favorite part is when the tiger took Simon to the lake to trick him. But Simon told the tiger to walk out into the lake then Simon jumped off his back and swam home while the tiger was drowning. I like the way the tiger plays in the book because he tries to trick the little boy. That is why I like the book.The book makes me feel a little happy.

I think people should read this book because this book is a very nice book.
