PDF (Stig of the Dump) BY Clive King

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 xperience to be imagination He really doesn t know and I liked that aspect because I fnd in reality children do doubt things if veryone lse 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 caveman in a dump and they become friends it s uite a known a dump and they become friends it s uite a well known What I wasn t xpecting 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 veryday things on the other hand so Barney starts to see things from a new perspective as he has to One Ticket To Texas explain them and without words to StigThe social commentary is veryntertaining 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 pheasant but refuses to kill a fox when he has the chance 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 Helpmate 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 ofarth 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 Art, Culture, and Cuisine: Ancient and Medieval Gastronomy ending rather bizarre but not in a bad way It was definitely a uniue story and I reallynjoyed it lots of laugh out loud moments Stig xperiencing jelly babies for the first time was great Another great book from my school days Stig Of The Dump was adapted into a mini series on TV and I used to rush home from school to watch it This was before ven video recording was available to the public so one had to watch it while is was airing I had an Black British Cultural Studies: A Reader evening paper round and at least once a week blame Stig Of The Dump I was very late Shop keeper never understood I lied and told him I had chess club which was half true but on a different day. Ether raid the rubbish dump at the bottom of the pit improve Stig's cave dwelling andnjoy a series of adventure. Another fabulous wallow in childhood nostalgia All the children s books I m currently reading are ones I read aged 8 10 and have never forgotten the stories had such an impact on my youthful self Stig of the dump is a fantastic read for children and adults alike it is a brilliant book to read aloud to both KS1 and KS2 children and as an independent read for KS2 The book tackles a wealth of issues within the story and focuses on morality and Gypsy World: The Silence of the Living and the Voices of the Dead ethics from the 60 that are still relevant to modern day children The story can be used to discuss friendship bullying right from wrong stealing lying inventions adventure ingenuity and recycling and language barriers A variety of activities can be based on sections of the story and incorporatelements of literacy history PSHE and art and design For instance my Year 2 class following the first chapter read aloud began to design a multitude of inventions and Bryozoan Evolution euipment that could be made out of recycled materials based on St Why oh why did it take me so long to abe able to read and bspend time with Stig and Barney I reallynjoyed this book from the outset and it was all due to Clive King s Crisis and Continuity at the Abbasid Court: Formal and Informal Politics in the Caliphate of Al-Muqtadir (295-320/908-32) engaging writing style and voice Howffortlessly he captures Barney s childlike disposition alongside the beauty and rare magic of the North Downs how can you not but love the scene when Barney and Lou cross paths with the stag Barney s adventures with his thought to be imaginary friend Stig are led by his inuisitiveness and wholly absorbing need to play the idea of a child Silvers Edge escaping to the local dump or wasteland alone now would cause many a raisedyebrow yet in my own youth the raised yebrow would come to the child who did not do this Unphased by who Stig might be or where he came from Barney wants not do this Unphased by who Stig might be or where he came from Barney wants help and support his friend with adapting his home in the dump hunting and njoying his time playing and learning with and from him Stig s role in the story is a fascinating one Barney does not rely on him at all times and it is interesting that he only visits his friend when he s over at his grandparents It is only when Barney is bored in danger and wanting to roleplay that he calls upon his friend There is to this I think Although stone sage Stig is a wonderful creation the real draw for me was Barney I found him completely Going Berserk endearing innocent trusting the robbersxplorative creative funny and kind He was a boy who could recall his grandfather s words of wisdom My Grandfather always says wood warms you twice once when you cut it and once when you burn it and when threatened and brought close to tears by the Snarget brothers would look to his Granny for love and support a sensitive boy who wonders and uestions the world he inhabits Who wouldn t want a Barney in their life Edward Ardizzone s illustrations bring not only Stig to life but Barney and his sister Lou too I am aware that Stig of the Dump has been reprinted often and ven adapted for television but for me the chemistry of Ardizzone and King is unbeatable and I won t bother looking anywhere lse if I want to go off on an adventure with Barney again 35 stars for us but a classic non the less Lovely idea for a story We Come Hell or High Water: Feminism and the Legacy of Armed Conflict in Central America enjoyed it but felt it lacked something perhaps it was the style of writing it lacked anything we found poetic or magical There were some nice pieces of humour and interesting parts We felt it left lots unexplained We felt sorry for Stig and kept wondering why Barney didn t take him a coat or boots or a sleeping bag or some nice hot food Read this probably 35 years ago The scene that stuck in my mind was Barney taking Stig jam jars and the way they were made into a window We liked the caveman s observation that killing a fox was pointless as they taste bad and the way he says this through.

old which is veryone lse 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.
