A very long time ago my infant school teacher read us all Stig of the Dump. Out loud and in its entirety. She was better at it than Tony Robinson or maybe it's just that my 6 year old mind was more impressed by her rendition. Whichever it was, the title has been in my head ever since, along with at least some of the scenes in the story.
It's a simple kind of story but with enough nuance to be interesting and if you are listening along with younger readers nobody will get lost and nobody should get bored. The language is simple without being condescending and Robinson actually does a very good job with it.
It's about the kind of everyday adventures that I had as a boy with just a little bit of extension to make them that bit more exciting. The kind of thing that we certainly used to believe was just about possible before, sadly, we learned better. Share it with a child before they learn better.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. Its a great story for kids but also for adults wanting some nostalgia
Have you listened to any of Tony Robinson’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Tho I do like Tony, his work and the way he presented this book, the only negative thing I would say is that he made the characters sound a lot younger than they actually were.
Any additional comments?
Loved the book. I know its a kids book but it took me back to the days of my childhood.
Thoroughly enjoyable and ideal for kids (I am a kid a heart!)
I bought this for my six year old and he absolutely loved it. Tony Robinson does a great job with the narration and the story is a classic!
