The ghost of Crackbone, a villainous rogue, is haunting the halls of Castle Grotteskew. And if that weren't bad enough, Crackbone claims that Stitch Head's patchwork heart used to belong to him! Will Stitch Head give up to the ghost, or fight for his almost-life?
I have really come to love this series so when I was ready to read book 3 I knew I was getting into a world with great characters and beautiful illustrations. I love how this book is done. Each page is as beautiful as the next and reading it in hardcover just makes it so much more special. I have complete love for these books and this series. I really love Stitch Head.
The Story & Characters:
Something isn’t right at Grotteskew. Stitch Head keeps hearing someone call his name. Thing are about to get very scary and only Stitch Head and his friends can fix it. I really enjoyed this story. Stitch Head is so sad but so very cute. I love the friendship in this book and how both the Creature and Arabella are trying so hard to make Stitch Head feel better but when the evil Mawley Crackbone gets in his head things take a very bad turn. I actually liked the villain he was a good villain for Stitch head and his friends to overcome. This book had lots of action and a couple twists I didn’t see coming. You are also introduced to a new character that is just so cute plus you finally get a back story that is interesting and lets you get to know Stitch Head and his new friend better. This series is just so fun and I can’t get enough of the entire cast of characters.
Highly recommend for kids and adults. I know my daughter is eager to read these and I can’t wait until she does. I don’t know about the ebook but this is a book that you will need in your hands just to experience the beauty of the pages and illustrations, I can’t get over just how amazing this book is and looks. I am excited to read the rest of the series.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
