Stig Of The Dump

By Clive King

As a child I loved spending time outdoors, making dens, digging, discovering and making things out of odds and ends. Whether this was why my father recommended this book to me or whether this book inspired my imagination, I can’t remember, but I have never forgotten this brilliant book and the values it teaches.

Children’s book.

Barney is a solitary boy. One day, as he’s lying on the edge of a disused chalk-pit, he falls into a cave, where he meets an odd-looking fellow named Stig, who has shaggy hair, wears a rabbit skin and speaks in grunts. Despite nobody believing that Barney’s friend is real, the two embark on a series of adventures, learning about each other’s ways.
