Stig of the Dump

Stig of the Dump Free download ✓ 2 Clive King Í 2 Review Barney is a solitary eight year old given to wandering off by himself One day he tumbles over lands in a sort of. This book surprised me I was expecting it to be a simple fun mildly enjoyable read which I would have better appreciated had I read it at 9 years old which is when everyone else seemed to read it Instead I was wowed by the levels of humour and social commentary and astute observation and depth within this storyI love it when children s books show insights into how kids minds work so often they are so focused on the child being a strong person that the odd little uirks and vulnerabilities and irrationalities of childhood are overlooked But Barney is a simply an incredibly believable child clearly written by someone very familiar with children For instance he hides in a tree one day finding great amusement that his grandmother and older sister can t find him he keeps silent when they call for him and then when they go out without him he gets very indignant blaming them for being mean and leaving him out This whole random hiding just for fun and taking offence at something that was really his fault that just struck me as so very typical of a child and not the sort of thing that is normally included in kids books You d never see a decent Enid Blyton character acting in such a silly way And what really impressed me was Barney s reaction when no one believes him about Stig There are lots of children s books about kids who find something magic and the adults don t believe them and the children are indignant and they know without a doubt that they are right and the adults are wrong But Barney he starts to doubt himself If adults are telling him it s his imagination well maybe it is maybe it s possible for an experience to be imagination He really doesn t know and I liked that aspect because I fnd in reality children do doubt things if everyone else is convinced that they are mistaken or that such thiings aren t possible I knew beforehand that this was a book about a boy who finds a caveman in a dump and they become friends it s uite a well known book What I wasn t expecting was how creatively the author would use this whole concept Stig has built himself a den and he uses the things people throw onto the dump Barney is fascinated at how old junk can be used in completely different ways from how it was intended Stig also doesn t talk so Barney has to find ways to communicate with him Meeting Stig causes Barney to start to think in new creative ways he wants to help Stig build a chimney and windows for instance and has to think of an unconventional way to do this It s also a bit strange and amusing for him that Stig is so tough and strong on the one hand but also so unfamiliar with everyday things on the other hand so Barney starts to see things from a new perspective as he has to explain them and without words to StigThe social commentary is very entertaining Barney is clearly a bit of a posh boy from an upper middle class family There s a fox hunt which he s too young to join but he decides to go unofficially with Stig Things don t go to plan when Stig kills a pheasant but refuses to kill a fox when he has the chance Barney is worried because killing pheasants isn t very sporting but Stig communicates to him that foxes don t taste good whereas pheasants do And of course Stig s logic makes sense he kills for food not for sportAnd then there s a scene when Barney sees some other boys playing in the dump rough boys whose clothes are tattered than his who have long hair and who talk with a Cockney accent Basically boys of a lower social class than his who have a reputation for causing trouble I wasn t sure what to expect here I wondered if it would descend into stereotypes but in fact it deftly turns the stereotypes on their head The boys start chasing Barney and threatening to hurt him but then the reason they are doing this is because Barney started it He wasn t happy that they were in the dump and threw clods of earth onto their little hideout What I really like is that the author never comments on whether characters have been good or bad or to blame for something neither directly nor through a favoured character who speaks on his behalf he just tells the story And Barney is always uncertain are these mean boys or are they just playing Now of course Stig gets involved in the spat to stand up for Barney and on the one hand Barney is delighted to have such a strong scary friend but on the other he realises that Stig could really hurt them and they are just little boys And he realises too that Stig is actually a lot rough than these boysI found the ending rather bizarre but not in a bad way It was definitely a uniue story and I really enjoyed it lots of laugh out loud moments Stig experiencing jelly babies for the first time was great

    E–pub/Pdf [Stig of the Dump] AUTHOR Clive King Generally I enjoy the post war optimism of children's books from either POST WWI or post WWII think Swallows and s or Narnia Compared to modern day children's books they tend to be about the adventure rather than about being relatable and about life How boring Stig of the Dump has that post war optimism but doesn't uite do it for me It's a little too closed off a little too small Written nicely I just feel it had so much to give a
