Publisher's Summary

Clive King's wonderful classic, Stig of the Dump, is now available to download, complete and unabridged and read by the brilliant Tony Robinson.

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.

    Story
    "Childhood, welcome back"

    A very long time ago my infant school teacher read us all Stig of the Dump. Out loud and in its entirety. She was better at it than Tony Robinson or maybe it's just that my 6 year old mind was more impressed by her rendition. Whichever it was, the title has been in my head ever since, along with at least some of the scenes in the story.

    It's a simple kind of story but with enough nuance to be interesting and if you are listening along with younger readers nobody will get lost and nobody should get bored. The language is simple without being condescending and Robinson actually does a very good job with it.

    It's about the kind of everyday adventures that I had as a boy with just a little bit of extension to make them that bit more exciting. The kind of thing that we certainly used to believe was just about possible before, sadly, we learned better. Share it with a child before they learn better.

    I bought this for my six year old and he absolutely loved it. Tony Robinson does a great job with the narration and the story is a classic!

    Story
    "Sixty Years to get round to read it."

    I am now a State Pensioner reading and listening to books that should have been read many years back in my youth. S of the D was on my wish list and have not been disappointed. Barny's adventures with Stig took me back to my youth and into the Dump. This will now be recommended to my Grand Children and to be read before getting too old. That said, we are never too old.

    Any additional comments?

    Held kids in rapt attention for duration. No arguments either over the choice of this. Just get it!
