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!

Praise for Harry the Poisonous Centipede
“A real ground level story that rockets along on hundreds of legs…Bug fans will love this.”

'Suddenly the most awful thing happened. Something tightened around Harry's middle! He almost jumped into the air with fright… Something was holding him. Something was dragging him! 'Something was lifting him into the air!''
When Harry the poisonous centipede's best friend, George, goes missing, Harry decides to find him. Not a good move when there are seriously dangerous things outside his nest-tunnel, such as flying swoopers, belly crawlers, furry biters and – most terrifying of all – 'Hoo-mins!'
When he gets captured by a young Hoo-min collector of creepy-crawlies, it's the worst nightmare a centi ever imagined. He finds himself in a glass jar with a screwed on lid. Around him are other captives – dung beetles, scorpions, a bad-tempered tarantula, and another centi! Yes, it's George. But how can they possibly escape from their hard-air prisons? And if they do – what terrifying adventures lie in wait for them before they can find their way back to their safe nest-tunnel, and their anxious mother Belinda?
