The silkworm: An anthropomorphic silkworm who is a shy, introverted creature that sleeps most of the time, but can easily be woken up in order to weave beautiful, very fine yet strong silk patterns. In the original 1960s printings, the Silkworm was male, but in the early 1990s reprints, the Silkworm is female. It is the Silkworm's threads which help James to save the Centipede when he falls off the peach, thousands of feet in the air, while dancing. The character of the Silkworm is omitted from the 1996 movie adaptation.
