Beschreibung des Verlags

Another deliciously squirmy story about Harry the Poisonous Centipede, with all Lynne Reid Banks’s usual charm and humour. Tony Ross’s wonderful illustrations perfectly capture the small world of Harry and his friend George, as they get taken prisoner by the Hoo-Mins…

Harry the poisonous centipede and his friend, George, are captured by the dreaded Hoo-Mins. How on earth can they escape from their hard-air prisons? Glass jars are too hard to climb, they’re too slippery, and the holes in the top are small. But when the Not-So-Big-Hoo-Min’s Mother accidentally knocks over two glass jars that happen to be holding a scorpion and a tarantula, all hell breaks loose… Harry and George seize the opportunity to escape – but just as they make for home, they are dived on by the biggest ‘flying-swooper’ they’ve ever seen and dumped in the ocean… how will they survive? This is just the start of Harry’s adventures as he encounters the marine centipedes who turn out to be very unpleasant little creatures indeed!

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

About the author

Since Lynne’s first novel for adults, The L-Shaped Room, she has been published here and in the US. Her strong narrative style and ability to create worlds where small people and animals live, is second to none. Her book, The Indian in the Cupboard, shortly to be a Collins Modern Classic, was made into a major feature film – her books in the series sell and sell. 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.”
