    Barney meets a caveman and is first scared but ends up becoming friends with Stig of the dump [that’s the cave mans name].

    This book, although slightly hard to start is incredible by the end. I always thought it amazing that stig could live in a dump and am maybe thinking of trying it myself someday!

    I liked the book but at the end I found it a bit boring. Still it is a great book and I like the fact that Barney just finds a cave man – in a dump.

    I love this book because Stig has an awesome cave that is like a childs fantasy and I think the description is so perfect that no one else can describe it, even as I am writing this I feel a tear in my eye . It is perfect for all and no one can dennie that . I can not find any more words to describe this wonderfull book.

    Stig of the dump is a really really good book. Its funny and sad.

  14. Mr Milne says:

    To me this book was a fascinating combination of many things. It mixed up time by intermingling ancient and modern. It took the reader away from frantic, complicated, modern day life in the city to the calm and slow pace of the Sussex countryside in the 1960s. And yet still it contained so much truly startling action: a savage caveman, a wild horse chase, an encounter with an escaped leopard, a car crashing down into a chalk pit. A unique book.
