I know that 'simple things make me happy.' is correct. Then I read this sentence in a novel: 'simple things makes me happy.'
Where actually, it doesn't sound wrong, but I don't know about the grammar and I want to be sure.
Could anyone help?

It is perfectly right, if you ask me.
One cannot imagine a creative sentence where simple things could be a singular noun such as a mass noun, etc.
Presuming the OP does mean the examples are complete sentences.
