The ghost of a villainous ne’er-do-well is haunting the corridors of Castle Grotteskew, gunning for Stitch Head’s heart …and soul. Certain that his heart once belonged to the vicious rogue, Stitch Head’s world is torn apart. Will he surrender to the evil ghost and agree to do his bidding…?
If you haven’t read any of my other reviews on the Stitch Head series you will need to know that Stitch Head is a creation. He is a being made up of a mishmash of leftover parts in Professor Erasmus’s Laboratory.
It was good to see that the creatures of the Castle of Grotteskew are staying busy. They have formed the Creative Creations Collective Amateur Dramatics Society and have started putting on plays! Stitch Head doesn’t seem nearly as excited about the plays as the Creature but he is a good sport, after all he is the heart and soul of the castle!
This is Mawley Crackbone! Isn’t he just a darling!? He is no longer alive, and Stitch Head has his heart. Mawley wants his heart back but since Stitch Head has it he is happy to take over Stitch Head’s body instead. Of course no one wants Stitch Head to give up his heart (or body). I’m sure you can imagine where this goes!
With the same great humour and action packed writing Guy Bass has hit this one out of the park. I don’t think I will ever get enough Stitch Head and am sad that I only have one book left!
