Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Meet Stitch Head, the first creation of Mad Professor Erasmas. They reside at Castle Grotteskew, above the little town of Grubbers Nubbin. Erasmus and Stitch Head swore to remain friends forever, but Erasmus grew up and forgot about his little, Frankenstein's Monster-like buddy. In a quest for the perfect experiment, Erasmus invents bigger, better, and more frightening creatures. Stitch Head takes on the job of calming these monsters so they will not terrorize the villagers and get his creator in trouble—and with the hope that his master will someday notice him again. He gets his wish when a traveling freak show comes to town. Things heat up for Erasmus, and it is up to Stitch Head to save him! He cannot do it alone, though, so he joins forces with his strange friends, Creature and Arabella, for a real pirate adventure. A monster story made for kids complete with a spooky castle, a mad scientist, and unusual monsters, Stitch Head presents a touching tale of friendship great for boys and girls alike.

Gr 3–6—There are many successful components to this tale: an endearingly uncertain Frankenstein-like protagonist, two entertaining sidekicks, and a vicious but cute monkey-bat. Stitch Head, a creation of a mad professor, has an identity crisis when his master, Professor Erasmus, leaves Castle Grotteskew to pursue fame and fortune. His friends Arabella, a butt-kicking girl from town, and the Creature, a sweet but dumb monster, try to console him. Since Stitch Head comes to believe that he's part pirate, his friends conjure up a ship. They set off for adventure and discover that the Professor has been kidnapped and a rescue mission is in order. The excellent black-and-white illustrations in this easy-to-read chapter book manage to be both adorable and evocative. The fast-paced plot twists will keep readers guessing, and there's plenty of humor that caters to the intended age range. However, the characters are not very well realized. They have the potential to be interesting, but a lack of background information keeps this title from being memorable. Recommended for students looking for a light read.—Kyle Lukoff, Corlears School, New York City
