Stig of the Dump, Clive King
Stig of the Dump - Clive King,Edward Ardizzone

Initially the low stakes, slow paced ambience of this book was a shock in comparison to contemporary  world-saving, thrill-ride, kids' books but having accepted it for what it is, I found this book to be charming and by the end, delightful. It's heavily episodic, with no discernable through-plot, but Barney and Lou's adventures with Stig when they visit their grandmother are successively more extravagant and the last two chapters are particularly surprising and fun.

Very episodic, so far.

Sad news. This was one of my favorite books as a child.
