So as many of you will know I really enjoy reading middle grade novels as well as young adult. I saw this in the library and the cover was stunning, the little illustration of Stitch Head drew me in and I decided to pick this book up. I went into it not really knowing anything about it, it was a short read at 190 page and I read it in a day. I was a cute, fun read. Stitch Head is the forgotten invention of the professor, he watches over the professor and steps in when the inventions go wrong. Stitch head was a cut little character and the illustrations of him where beautiful. I loved all the illustrations in the book as they added an extra dimension to the story. my favourite illustration was of course Stitch Head. The novel was a quick read but I enjoyed getting lost in the castle and joining Stitch Head on his adventure. I loved the writing and I hope to read the rest of the series very soon. I would highly recommend this story to everyone who wants a quick, fun and exciting read.
Just a quick review this time, but I hope to read and review the rest of the series very soon. Stay tuned for another post.
