Product description

In the maze-like dungeons of Castle Grotteskew, the frightfully insane Professor Erasmus conducts his bizarre experiments on living things. His very first creation has been long forgotten – a small, almost human creature, known only as Stitch Head. Poor Stitch Head has spent years living in the shadows, fighting for attention among a menagerie of freakish monsters. When a travelling circus ringmaster, Fulbert Freakfinder, promises to make him a star, Stitch Head dares to wonder whether there could be another life for him. But first he must capture the professor’s latest creation – a monstrous three-armed creature that’s just smashed its way to freedom…

Funny and spooky, Stitch Head is the latest irresistible creation from Guy Bass, the Blue Peter Award-winning author of Dinkin Dings and the Frightening Things.

    This book is amazing, when I was sad I read this book and it cheered me up… My favourite part was when the people ran because the sky went darker and a castle just appeared and they all ran because they were frightened and I like it when the girl said “I ain’t scared of nothin’”

    I liked this book because the characters are brilliant. I liked the scene were Stitch Head plays ‘Dingle Dangle’ with go (who is supposed to be his best friend).x

    When I started reading this book I felt inspired by it. My favourite part was when Stitch Head did the dingle dangle in front of the professor.

    I felt happy that Stitch Head found new friends at the end.
