Stig of the Dump archiveWhen Barney, a day-dreaming, eight year old falls over the edge into a chalk pit he discovers Stig, a modern day caveman living in a rubbish dump. Thrills, excitement and fun abound as they embark on an original fantasy journey. Making use of everything to improve Stig's home, this intriguing and touching tale is a wonderful proclamation about friendship, imagination and possibly even recycling. Written in 1963 by Clive King, Stig of the Dump has became a firm favourite amongst readers with several first reading the book in school. It was adapted for television, firstly for ITV in 1981 and later by the BBC in 2002. It continues to be read in schools to support the Literacy Curriculum and, of course, enjoyed by adults approaching it for the very first time.
