Stitch Head and the residents of Castle Grotteskew are back for another adventure – hoorah! They’re struggling to keep order in the castle which has become home to 100 ravenous human orphans - not even the Creature’s ‘entertrainment’ show can keep them happy, despite his costume’s toggle of hilarity… Add to that a rampaging beast that might just be Arabella and the stage is set for an enormous helping of fun. Gruesome, inventive, and full of slapstick humour the Stitch Head books are highly entertaining, while their cast of strange characters are genuinely endearing. The design and Pete Williamson’s illustrations make them even more appealing. ~ Andrea Reece

Guy Bass grew up dreaming of being a superhero – he even had a Spider-Man costume. The costume doesn't fit anymore, so Guy now contents himself with writing and drawing the occasional picture. He writes the Gormy Ruckles series for Scholastic UK, as well as the popular Dinkin Dings series for Stripes. In 2010, Dinkin Dings and the Frightening Things won a CBBC Blue Peter Book Award in the "Most Fun Story with Pictures" category. Guy lives in London with his wife.
