Stitch by Padraig Kenny - discussion guide

Stitch and his friend Henry Oaf were brought to life by the genius Professor Hardacre. But when his wicked nephew takes over the laboratory, they soon discover that his sights are set on Henry as his next experiment.

Can Stitch and Henry escape his clutches and make their way in a world they were never built for – and may only ever see them as monsters?

“A marvellously delicate parable of friendship, grief and owning being different.” – Jonathan Stroud
