Stig of the Dump
Illustrated by Edward Ardizzone
Introduced by David Almond
The Folio edition of Stig of the Dump, Clive King’s beloved children’s tale of friendship and time travel. Newly introduced by the award-winning author David Almond, with Edward Ardizzone’s inimitable illustrations from the first edition.
Barney spends the school holidays at his grandmother’s house on the Kentish Downs. He’s bored and a little lonely, until he ventures one day to the edge of a nearby chalk pit, falls in and makes a very unusual friend. As introducer David Almond writes, ‘Stig is a stranger in Barney’s world’, but Barney soon discovers that Stig’s world is not so far away after all…
Edward Ardizzone’s original illustrations, which have become synonymous with the book, have been retained for this new edition. The binding also mirrors the first edition of 1963, with an illustration from the book repeated in colour and the title written in the artist’s distinctive hand. The pictures throughout have been reproduced from the originals, ensuring that they are crisp and true to Ardizzone’s vision.
