The Wee Kirkcudbright Centipede is based on the lyrics of a popular song for children by Matt McGinn and has been published with permission of the family of the late singer songwriter. It tells of a centipede who can dance beautifully, despite having so many legs. But Jenny Longlegs is jealous and tries to work out how to do the dance. When she fails to get it right, she asks the Wee Kirkcudbright Centipede to explain but it all goes horribly wrong. She realizes that you should never try to explain what comes naturally!
