Harry and George have many adventures together, but there are some places they aren’t supposed to go, like the No-Top world where there are fierce creatures like Hairy Biters and Flying Swoopers. But the scariest creatures of all are the r two-legged Hoo-Mins! This is the conclusion to the Harry the Poisonous Centipede series, and it was just as good as the other two. For the final time we get to see into the lives of Harry and George and encounter their last recorded adventure. This time we are in a whole new place, farther away from their nest than ever.

In this sequel to the acclaimed The Indian in the Cupboard, Omri decides to see Little Bear again and turns the key that brings the three-inch toy to life. Ages 8-12.
