a fox hunt 
fox hunt I njoy the post war optimism of children s books from ither POST WWI or post WWII think Swallows and s or Narnia Compared to modern 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 It s a little too closed off a little too small Written nicely I just feel it had so much to give and never uite got around to it This book surprised me I was The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs expecting it to be a simple fun mildlynjoyable read which I would have better appreciated had I read it at 9 years old which is when Moreno everyonelse 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 and 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 great amusement that his grandmother and older sister can t find him he keeps silent when they call for him and then when they go out without him he gets 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 Stig of the dump is a fantastic read for children and adults alike it is a brilliant book to read aloud to both KS1 and KS2 children and as an independent read for KS2 level The book tackles a wealth of issues within the story and focuses on morality and Monsieur Pain 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 incorporatelements 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 uipment that could be made out of recycled materials based on Stig s creati.
