My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Background: Stitch Head is a creation of the mad professor, he has been forgotten in a large castle, only sticking around to fix the mad professor's monstrous creations. He has accepted the fact that the professor forgot about him, until a carnival comes to town and has interest in the castle and it's creations, might Stitch Head have a chance to be Unforgettable? He may try.

Review: I loved the pictures throughout this book, they were very cute but also dark and odd. Stitch Head is really the tale of friendship and believing in oneself. I liked it very much. I did not have any real problem with the plot or the images, but I just liked it, it was not one of the best middle grade books I have read lately. It was very easy to read with lots of pictures and side-notes to the reader. I think this would be a great read for boys, but girls will love it too, the creatures are entertaining and fun to look at.

  1. I can see how the illustrations would be very attractive to kids. Sometimes that can really encourage a "doesn't like to read" kid to pick up a book and give it a try. Great review!

  2. My students tend to love most of Capstone's books, as they are easy fun reads and at their level. I love the cover of this one. Great review.

  3. Sorry, I was gonna say I'll bet my grandsons would enjoy it!!!!
