A Stubborn Centipede and Lots of Fun
Book Review by a Mom

A year ago for Christmas, my youngest daughter was given a copy of this book, The Very Stubborn Centipede, by Susan Snyder and illustrated by Anna Johanson, along with two other books by the same author and illustrator. We have enjoyed this books so much that I wanted to share it with you.


A very determined (stubborn) centipede makes his way into a lady's home and latches onto her foot. No matter what she does, yelling, screaming, dancing around her kitchen, the centipede will not let go. He wiggles and squiggles, moving from one toe to another, and seems to be enjoying his mischief. After a bit, he tires out and slides across this kitchen floor in an attempt to escape a broom. He manages to escape the broom, but meets his match when the family cat appears.

The book is written in fun, lyrical rhymes with large, engaging pictures. The expressions on the faces of the characters are hysterical, and the descriptions used to describe the action are fun, entertaining, and make the reader feel as if they understand completely the emotions of the main character (the HUMAN main character).

Why Aubrey Liked the Book

Aubrey, age 5, stated that she liked the part of the book where the cat held up the centipede, crossed his hands, and became the hero of the story. She said she liked it because of the look on the cat's face. :)
