This review is from: Harry the Poisonous Centipede's Big Adventure (Paperback)
This book (and the other two Harry the Poisonous Centipede books) are loved by my son, a 10 year old dyslexic, reluctant reader. My 7 year old daughter also enjoys them. We first discovered them via a book/tape set.
In this book Harry and George are captured and kept by a Hoo-min, child, who doesn't know that insects don't just eat each other. Then what happens when his mother comes to clean the room? More adventures for Harry and George!
We love translating names into Centipedish, and there is scope to try talking Beetle. (Centipedish has no vowels, and Beetle always rhymes.)
My daughter's school has discovered Harry and read the first book to the class; my daughter competed by trying to stay ahead. The first book has the easiest language and shortest chapters, but once hooked on Harry my son has managed to cope with the slightly harder structure of the next two books.
I'd recommend them to anyone.
