Simon is one of the main characters in The Spiderwick Chronicles.

Simon is somewhat nerdy and is respectful of authority. He cares for animals and faeries greatly, even to the extent of housing and nurturing a griffin. He is calm, shy, and caring, and known for protecting his twin on many occasions. Amongst the faeries, Simon is friends with Thimbletack the brownie, and the hobgoblin Hogsqueal, whom he rescues. He also rescues a griffin, whom he names Byron, and who in a way becomes his pet after Simon cares for and houses him. Simon’s enemies consist of Mulgarath the ogre, goblins that were Mulgarath's henchmen, and Red Cap, leader of the goblins. In the film, he and Jared are portrayed by British actor Freddie Highmore. Highmore also voices the twins in the video game.


In the books, he has a cat called Tibbs, some tadpoles, and two mice called Lemondrop and Jeffrey; he also had lizards which he kept in tanks. In the end, Thimbletack froze the tadpoles into ice blocks and Tibbs was eaten by the goblins. After being freed by Jared he found a new kitten. Jeffrey and Lemondrop were taken by Thimbletack. He returned them when his new house was built. In a way he also had Byron the griffin when he was cut by a goblin.
