Simon Everett Grace is the older twin brother of Jared Grace, the older brother to Mallory Grace and son of Helen and Richard Grace. He also has an uncle, Terrence. Simon is one of the main characters in The Spiderwick Chronicles.

He 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 a hobgoblin, Hogsqueal, whom he rescues, as well as a griffin, Byron, who in a way becomes his pet after he takes care of him and houses him. His enemies consist of Mulgarath the ogre, goblins that were Mulgarath's "helpers", and Red Cap, Leader of the goblins. In the film, he and Jared are portrayed by British actor Freddie Highmore. In the video game, Highmore also voices the twins. In the upcoming stage musical, the role will be played by Nic Rouleau.


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.
