Product description

“It’s dark monstrous fun!” Wondrous Reads

Enter the darkly funny world of Stitch Head, as he steps out of the shadows into the adventure of an almost-lifetime…

Deep in the maze-like dungeons of Castle Grotteskew, insane Professor Erasmus created Stitch Head, a small, almost-human creature. His experiments continued, filling the castle with creations so fabulously monstrous that Stitch Head was long forgotten. Until a travelling circus ringmaster knocks at the castle door, promising to make Stitch Head a star. Is this Stitch Head’s chance to venture beyond the castle walls? Or could he be making a terrible mistake…?

The first book in the best-selling, laugh-out-loud STITCH HEAD series by award-winning author Guy Bass, with illustrations by Pete Williamson.

Full of monstrous fun, STITCH HEAD is perfect for fans of David Walliams, AMELIA FANG and THE NOTHING TO SEE HERE HOTEL.

    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.
