Another deliciously squirmy story about Harry the Poisonous Centipede, with all of Lynne Reid Banks's usual charm and humour. Tony Ross's wonderful illustrations perfectly capture the small world of Harry. `Suddenly the most awful thing happened. Something tightened around Harry's middle! He almost jumped into the air with fright...' When Harry the poisonous centipede's best friend, George, goes missing, Harry goes to find him. But dangerous things lurk outside his nest-tunnel, like flying swoopers, belly crawlers, furry biters and - most terrifying of all - Hoo-Mins!
About the Author
Lynne Reid Banks was an actress in the early 1950s and later became one of the first two women TV News reporters in Britain. She is a bestselling author for both children and adults, and has written over forty books, including The Indian in the Cupboard, which was made into a major feature film, bestselling Harry the Poisonous Centipede and The L-Shaped Room. Lynne says writing for children comes more easily than writing for adults. "It's not that it is less demanding - I just find it more fun."
