1. Harry the Poisonous Centipede: A Story to Make You Squirm – "It’s a Hoo-Min! crackled George."
"Walking on its hairy biter feet!"
But now it was Harry who felt brave.
"Come on! Lets’s peep at it."
Harry is a poisonous centipede but he’s not very brave.Still, he is the star of this seriously squirmy story. Harry likes to eat things that wriggle and crackle, and things that are juicy and munchy! But there are some things that a centipede must never try to eat — dangerous things like flying swoopers, belly wrigglers, mid the most dangerous of all … Hoo-Mins!
Harry’s mother makes him promise never to go up the Up-Pipe to the world of Hoo-Mins, but Harry’s best friend, George, has other ideas! And as every young Hoo-Min knows, when your best friend wants to do something that sounds exciting, it’s very hard to say no. So George and Harry poke their feelers out and smell the air….and that’s when their adventures begin.
2. Harry the Poisonous Centipede’s Big Adventure: Another Story to Make You Squirm – A squiggly, squirmy sequel to Harry the Poisonous Centipede…
Harry the poisonous centipede is in big trouble. Despite his mother’s warnings, he leaves his safe nest-tunnel and finds himself captured by a young Hoo-Min bug collector. Together with his friend George, he’s shut into a hard-air prison (a glass jar to you). Even when they escape, many scary and creepy adventures await them: a huge flying swooper, a giant side-runner, even a fall into the no-end puddle (all right then, the ocean). And that’s before they meet the Worst Things in the World! Will they make it home before something gets them?
3. Harry the Poisonous Centipede Goes to Sea – Look out, Hoo-Mins! Here comes a third adventure to make you squirm. Harry and George, the incident-prone centipede buddies who have had fans laughing through two hilarious sagas of accidental derring-do, Harry the Poisonous Centipede and Harry the Poisonous Centipede’s Big Adventure, are back in their third and final escapade–and this time our two favorite arthropods are in really over their heads!
