Kid’s Book Review: Stitch Head

Kid’s Book Review: Stitch Head

About the Book

This is the graphic novel edition of Stitch Head by Guy Bass.

Pete Williamson’s comic artwork  has brought the action and characters to life from the maze-like dungeons of Castle Grotteskew where Professor Erasmus created Stitch Head, a small, almost-human creature.

The professor’s experiments continued, filling the castle with creations so fabulously monstrous that Stitch Head was long forgotten. But one day 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?

Book Review

This is a great book if you like books with a slight amount of horror but also action comics

This is a great book if you like books with a slight amount of horror but also action comics.

It makes good sense when you’ve read it and there are great drawings and images.

My favourite part was the flashback when his master had just created Stitch Head.

I also liked the part when he told Creature his story.
