Book Description

1 Aug 2011 Stitch Head (Book 1)
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 vying for attention amongst a menagerie of freakish monsters. When a travelling circus ringmaster, Fulbert Freakfinder, promises to make him a star, Stitch Head wonders whether there is another life for him. But first he has to catch the professor's latest creation - a monstrous three-armed creature that's just smashed its way to freedom . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 24 Jan 2013
titch Head carries on the fine tradition of Dinkin, where Dinkin was more a character that the reader laughed at for his silly fear of everything. Stitch Head is a much more sympathetic character, one that you actually feel sorry for and really care for. Despite being ignored by his creator, he still remains unwaveringly faithful to him. This gives him an almost sad little puppy vibe about him.

However don't fret, this isn't a sad story, yes there is a sad emotional core to the story, but Guy Bass surrounds this heart with layers upon layers of witty writing, tongue and cheek humour, and a great deal of excitement. To create a truly wonderful book. This is one of the finest books I have read this year.

It is the perfect sort of book for Dads to read to their kids. I guarantee that the dads will get as much enjoyment from this fantastic piece of literature than their kids will. Just be warned there is a bylaw that states all Dads must do silly voices for all the characters when reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Todd little book 6 Dec 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Read this with my son who is 10. It is a good story with a happy ending. The creatures are all loveable and funny with it. A child's version of Frankenstein.

5.0 out of 5 stars stich head meets a friend 19 May 2012
By turtle8
It is really sad that Stitch head doesn't have a friend yet but at the end his master, makes a mad creation that tries to wreck the place up. Fortunately for professor E (Stitch heads master), Stitch head cures the monster and it becomes his friend.
I found this book really exciting, and because there are only two books so far I'd like to introduce a book of my own called "Stitch head meets another friend" where Stitch head meets an identical friend from a different dimension.
