Barney is always wandering off… and one day he wanders to an abandoned chalk-pit, and tumbles over the edge. He lands in a cave and finds himself staring at a boy with shaggy hair and bright black eyes! Nobody believes that Barney has met a boy in the rubbish dump – a boy who wears a rabbit-skin and speaks in grunts. But what ancient Stone Age secrets does Stig hide? Barney finds out one night when they travel to a time very long ago, and watch Stig’s tribe build a mysterious circle made of stones…
Told in simple, captivating language, this beloved story is remarkable both for its breath of imagination and for the historical lesson which it teaches. Drawing readers into the prehistory whose remains still lie scattered in the English soil, Clive King’s timeless classic shimmers with intense magic.
