Simon le Stubbins now aged 8 from Totnes was bitten by a tiny red brown spider in the park last summer. The local park is situated in a quiet area of town, snugly beside the car park and Somerfield. When Simon was bitten he let out a yell, giving much mirth to the bigger boys. Simon later told his mum that in all fairness he did warn the bigger boys to stop laughing or they would regret it later, now some nine months later his prediction has come true. Simon was brave enough not to reveal his super powers to the bigger boys and let them continue hitting him with empty plastic containers and giving him a wedgie.
Simon has produced a drawing of the “gang” that damaged his underwear and the picture will go on display at school tomorrow.
As for his superpowers, well Simon is not telling this reporter, though he did let slip that he would use his powers only for good, and in secret.
Simon has kindly let us reproduce his drawing of the gang of bigger boys:
