Stitch Head

Stitch Head

by Guy Bass
Illustrated by Pete Williamson

In the frightening, maze-like dungeon laboratory deep within Castle Grotteskew, mad scientist Professor Erasmus brings his bizarre experiments to life. His first creation, Stitch Head, has long been forgotten. But when a traveling circus ringmaster promises to make him a star, Stitch Head is torn between his almost-life in the castle and the promise of fame outside its walls. But before he can decide what to do, the professor’s latest monstrous creation has smashed its way to freedom . . . and Stitch Head is the only one who can stop it.

Ginger Nuts of Horror blog - Jim Mcleod

"...I have a history with Mr Guy Bass, and his books. This is the man who I single-handedly lay the blame for igniting my sons passion for reading, and for that I thank him. . . . Guy Bass surrounds this [story] 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." - Ginger Nuts of Horror blog

Sharon the Librarian blog - Sharon

"I highly recommend Stitch Head to readers around 7 and older. The story holds fun, humor, and a good story without a heavy handed moral or message. It is a layered story, with something for the advanced and emotionally thoughtful readers, as well as those that enjoy a simple joke about bodily noises and entertaining action.  I think it would highly appeal to reluctant readers and those that often complain that reading is boring, because this book could just convince them otherwise." - Sharon the Librarian blog

NetGalley Review - Heather Wahl

"The descriptions of the monsters aided by the pictures are wonderful.  The book should feed the requirement for werewolves and vampires that we have at the moment.  It is a book that I shall now purchase for our library." - NetGalley Review

MoonShine Art Spot blog - Lisa

"One of the best children's books I have read in a while & I look forward to it's official USA publication. The illustrations and humorous interactions among zany characters intertwine to make a wonderfully magic story for both children & adults. . . .Stitch Head is full of love and this story would be a great add to any child's reading experience with lessons about loyalty and true friendship. There is action and laughs a million for this heart warming little hero whose loyalty to his creator is truly heart touching." - MoonShine Art Spot blog

NetGalley Review - Joel Smith

"...cheerful, sad, entertaining, involving, and way better than it should be. And it is one of the few books for this age group, at least that I've read lately, in which the illustrations have their own independent charm and nicely complement the narrative. The result is that the whole enterprise is imbued with real cheer and good humor." - NetGalley Review

NetGalley Review - L. Gold

"I don't think I can say how much of a pleasure this book was to read. As an adult, I could see that allusions to Frankenstein, etc, but my 7-year-old son just saw this as a fun book to read. The best part is that he's normally a reluctant reader and I need to fight with him to read more than a couple pages. This book was finished in three nights! This is on the top of the list for books I need to buy him for his bookshelf! Thank you for letting us read it (and for those quiet three nights)!" - NetGalley Review

NetGalley Reveiew - LuAnn Staheli

"Hysterically funny and perfect for middle grade boys. I loved the drawings that accompanied the story and attached to the quirky characters. . . .The cover art drew in my students and found numerous readers among them as well. A perfect addition to a Halloween collection for a school library, or to attract the interest of a reluctant reader." - NetGalley Reveiew

NetGalley Review - Paula Celaya

Loquacious Readers blog - Geisha Cielos

Lindsey Mountford blog - Lindsey Mountford

"The monster characters are fantastic, scary-funny like a Tim Burton film. The story is fast-paced and action-packed, and has depth and a heart, witty language and snappy dialogue. If you like the sound of mad scientists, magic potions, spooky castles, friendly monsters, circuses and fearless heroines and “curtain-covered carriages trundle-clopping across lamplit cobbles,” then this book is for you." - Lindsey Mountford blog

Library Media Connection - Nick Petrosino, District Library Coordinator, Ravenna (Ohio) School District

"The story is told with bold b&w illustrations which greatly enhance the reading experience. Short chapters are introduced with intriguing tidbits that entice the reader. The characters are fun and the little protagonist is someone readers can root for. The book will catch the eye of many readers, especially those looking for something dark and adventurous." - Library Media Connection

Children's Literature Comprehensive Online - Justina Engebretson

"With a dash of humorous horror, a dose of loveable, freakish characters, and a page-turning plot, this chapter book is sure to capture the interest of elementary boys. The gothic-like illustrations add to the book's appeal and the humorous undertones of the plot. Friendship is a focal theme of this story bringing depth to the plot." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Online
