Yo soy un mono araña, y vivo en Costa Rica. Cuando vi a Carol Creager con Luis Barrantes, yo hice mis mañas para ganar su atención. ¿Qué mejor manera? Los seguí. De esta manera obtuve la atención de Carol para convencerle que me haga héroe de uno de sus libros porque soy tan ágil. Así llegué a mi meta de llamar la atención de todos a los monos arañas.

I am a spider monkey, and I live in Costa Rica. When I saw Carol Creager with Luis Barrantes, I performed my tricks to gain their attention. What better way? I followed them. In this way I gained the attention of Carol to convince her to make me the hero of one of her books. That is how I reached my goal of calling the attention of everyone to spider monkeys.
Simon, the spider monkey
