Simon lived by the sea, but he knew not one other boy or girl to share it with him. He wished and wished for a real friend - and then one day, there on the beach, standing round a man called Mr Hall, and singing. Simon joined in.
Very soon he knew Nat, with freckles, and Johnny; Elspeth, with a pink dress and a bad cold; and her dog, Rob, who found Simon when he was lost in a cave.
Real friends for Simon. Or, could Johnny be something else?
