‘I must have read/been read this book a dozen times or more. It was published in 1963 and has sold over 2 million copies since, probablt because it’s such a wonderful, touching, timeless tale of friendship. Essential reading for children and adults.’
From the publisher
The famous story of Barney and his best friend, cave-man Stig.
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 others ways and embarking on a series of unforgettable adventures.
