Stig of the Dump


Childrens Book Publisher
  • Barney is a solitary little boy, given to wandering off by himself. One day he is lying on the edge of a disused chalk-pit when it gives way and he lands in a sort of cave. Here he meets ‘somebody with a lot of shaggy hair and two bright black eyes’ wearing a rabbit skin and speaking in grunts. He names him Stig. Of course nobody believes Barney when he tells his family all about Stig, but for Barney cave-man Stig is totally real. They become great friends, learning each others ways and embarking on a series of unforgettable adventures.

This is a really good book. It's about this Stone Age man in a dirty dump and a boy. Even though the Stone Age man called Stig doesn't speak any real language they become really, really good friends and go on adventures with one another. It's a great book.

An excellent early read which has stood the test of time ( I remember reading this book when I was 7/8 years old and loved it).

Who is this boy and what is he doing here? Barney is bored and he needs a friend to play with, but he didn't mean someone like this!

This book made me feel Sad, Curious, Intrigued, Amused
