The Lovereading4Kids comment
Published in the early 1960s and yet as relevant today as it was then, this is a book that will captivate the imagination of a 7 or 8 year old – in fact even the most reluctant reader will be hooked. When Barney falls into a disused quarry he’s confronted by Stig, a caveman but none of Barney’s friends believe the story of Stig. So Barney has the time of his life and the two of them get up to a whole heap of adventures. Just read it – we guarantee you’ll enjoy it.
The Good Book Guide Review. An enduring favourite with children for almost twenty years, this intriguing and humorous book tells the story of a friendship between modem Barney and Stig the Stone Age boy whom he finds living in the chalk pit. Each is strange to the other, very: but a wonderful understanding, based on curiosity and a respect for one another's skills, develops.

This is the story of a boy who finds a Stone-Age cave-dweller living in a rubbish dump, and the adventures they subsequently find themselves on.
