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."

Review:

Praise for Harry the Poisonous Centipede:"A real ground level story that rockets along on hundreds of legs...Bug fans will love this." - Kidstuff School Books RTE Guide Praise for Tiger, Tiger:"Tiger, Tiger burns brightly to the very last page, and long afterwards too." - Michael Morpurgo Praise for The Indian in the Cupboard:"An assured piece of storytelling, well able to stand comparison with older classics." - Times Educational Supplement "Enthralling and hair-raising reading." - TLS Praise for The Secret of the Indian:"There have been many famous stories in which children's toys come alive: this book is in the same great tradition." -School Library Association.
