Simon is the new boy in school, and he doesn't want to be the only one without at least a grandmother to invite for "Grandparents Day". His mother suggests he bring the nice neighbor, Violette, much to his relief. But Simon doesn't realize she is blind until she has already accepted to accompany him. MUST she wear such bright clothes and orange shoes that look like pumpkins??

Read the other Simon books: Simon, as du ballon,Le secret de Simon, Mission Chocolat pour Simon, Simon et Zizou, and Simon est Amoureux, as well as Le mystère des nuits blanches and Un espion dans la maison by the same author.
