Stitch Head by Guy Bass
Stripes Publishing ISBN 9781847151834

Stitch Head was the professor's first creation made up of bits and pieces found in Castle Grotteskew. He is more or less human-shaped but rather small and is now long-forgotten by his maker. One day Stitch Head is approached by the rather frightening Fulbert Freakfinder who is looking for new recruits for his Travelling Carnival of Unnatural Wonders. Could this be the adventure of an almost-lifetime? And will Stitch Head ever find a real friend? This is another laugh-out-loud story from a brilliantly funny writer with amazing illustrations throughout the book. It is sure to delight boys and girls alike.
