(EBOOK/PDF) [Stig of the Dump] Ø Clive King

Captured gBle to read and bspend time with Stig and Barney I really enjoyed this book from the outset and it was all due to Clive King s engaging writing style and voice How effortlessly 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 escaping to the local dump or wasteland alone now would cause many a raised eyebrow yet in my own youth the raised eyebrow would come to the child who did not do this Unphased by who Stig might be or where he came from Barney wants to help and support his friend with adapting his home in the dump hunting and enjoying 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 hisrandparents 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 endearing innocent trusting the robbers explorative creative funny and kind He was a boy who could recall endearing innocent trusting the robbers explorative creative funny and kind He was a boy who could recall خاطرات یک زن توده ای 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 even adapted for television but for me the chemistry of Ardizzone and King is unbeatable and I won t bother looking anywhere else if I want too off on an adventure with Barney again Another reat 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 even video recording was available to the public so one had to watch it while is was airing I had an 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 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 either POST WWI or post WWII think Swallows and s or Narnia Compared to 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 but doesn t uite do it for me s a little too closed off a little too small Written nicely I just feel it had so much to ive and never uite ot around to it 35 stars for us but a classic non the less Lovely idea for a story We 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 mime Our copy had beautiful Edward Ardizzone illustrations always a bonus 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 sel. Ether raid the rubbish dump at the bottom of the pit improve Stig's cave dwelling and enjoy a series of adventure. I remember this fondly from when I was a little boyRIP Clive KingStig of the Dump has never been out of print and has sold than 2 million copies since it was published in 1963 A delightfully little story about a eight year old boy Barney He is a curious boy with a desire to explore and is told not to o too close to the edge of the uarry He does The Dressmakers Gift get too close though and falls down to the bottom He lands in a cave cut into the chalk and there looking at him is a short hairy man with sparkling black eyes and wearing animal furs The start to communicate usingestures and runt and barney decides to call him Stig And so begins a series of adventures with his new friend They raid the rubbish dump at the bottom disturb a fox hunt and capture an escaped animal from a circus amongst other scrapesPart of a challenge where you had to read a book from your childhood this was one that I had fond memories of and amazingly I could still remember details of the story several decades on Timeless storytelling at its best Stig of the dump is a fantastic read for children and adults alike it is a brilliant book to read to both KS1 and KS2 children and as an independent read for KS2 level The book tackles a wealth issues within the story and focuses on morality and ethics from the 60 s 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 incorporate elements 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 euipment that could be made out of recycled materials based on Stig s Creations The Areas That This Book Can The areas that this book can to and the range of activities that can be based on this story for both KS1 and KS2 make this book a fantastic resource for primary teachers However it must be noted that the language in the book can occasionally be difficult for younger readers as the prose is at times very dated and does not always follow modern literary conventions Although do not let this put you off as Stig of the Dump is a reat read and a fantastic resource 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 odd little uirks and vulnerabilities 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 Street Without a Name: Childhood and Other Misadventures in Bulgaria great amusement that hisrandmother and older sister can t find him he keeps silent when they call for him and then when they Running from Strangers go out without him heets 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. Barney is a solitary eight year old iven to wandering off by himself One day he tumbles over lands in a sort of. ,
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 o unofficially with Stig Things don t If It’s Monday It Must Be Madurai: A Conducted Tour of India 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 tasteood 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 The Monk as Man: The Unknown Life of Swami Vivekananda great My son LOVED this when he was a kid I picked it up curious to find out why it being the Daily Deal at Audibleuk 2019 05 30I haveiven it three stars but for kids or young adult readers I highly recommend it It s fun It s exciting It s amusing It teaches the value of creative thought imagination enerosity and sharing of doing things out in the fresh air together with friends It will have your kids Making Things Out Of things out of and odds and ends It speaks of friendship and promotes curiosity ingenuity bravery and daring Kind treatment of animals too It s a reat book to put in the hands of a young readerMartin Jarvis narrates the audiobook His performance is definitely worth five stars I uarantee he will have you chuckling kids and adults alike It s the delicious icing on a tasty cake Why oh why did it take me so long to abe Cave and meets' somebody with shaggy hair wearing a rabbit skin and speaking in runts He names him Stig They tog.
