Waterstones Says

A rightly revered children's classic, King's timeless tale of a live stone age boy discovered at the bottom of a twentieth-century chalk pit is wonderfully warm and engaging escapism of the highest order.

Clive King's Stig of the Dump is a much-loved modern classic, since it was first published in 1986 it has never been out of print and has sold more than two-million copies. A favourite with children for generations, it remains one of Waterstones favourite children’s stories.

Stig of the Dump is the story of Barney and his best friend, cave-man Stig.

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 other’s ways and embarking on a series of unforgettable adventures.

‘The book's depiction of the vivid interior life and imagination of a child, the delight of roaming free, making shelters and dens away from the grown-ups, as well as ideas such as the universal language of friendship - and even the importance of recycling - feel as fresh and relevant today as they did when Puffin first published it in 1963.’ - Francesca Dow, MD of Penguin Random House Children's
