Stig of the Dump,
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Stig of the Dump (Puffin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
STIG OF THE DUMP
In the holidays Barney goes to his grandmother's house. Barney also takes his sister Lou. Barney falls down into a chalk pit and meets stig. No one believes him so Barney tries to make them se stig. Lou does se him one night when they go out and se a tribe of weird people. There is also the time when they get invited to a fancy dress party. Stig shows up and frightens Lou. Lou came as a puma and Barney a caveman. The snargets are the roughest boys in town but when stig takes out Robin Hood (the youngest snarget) the two others run away screaming. They give stig and Barney three gifts. First they give jelly babies stig likes them. Then they give sherbets with liquorice straws.
Finally they give a pack of cigarettes which Barney totally despises. Stig and Barney become heroes when they stop thieves that steal gold and silver from his grandmother's house.
I like the Snargets bit because they have weird nicknames and talk in a kind of Irish way. I would rate this book 8-10 and I think that 8-12 year olds would like this book if they like adventurous stories

I liked reading your review, and I especially enjoyed the part where we read it in class and all pretended we were a Snarget boy. Your account of that bit was very good - well done!!

I really liked Oren's review because he wrote clearly and I was able to imagine what the story was about, even though I hadn't read it myself. I especially liked the end when he described it as an adventurous story which other children might enjoy
