Here he meets ‘somebody with a large number of shaggy hair and two bright black eyes’ wearing a rabbit skin and speaking in grunts. He names him Stig., Of course nobody believes Barney when he tells his family all about Stig, but for Barney cave-man Stig is totally real. They turn out to be great friends, learning each others ways and embarking on a series of unforgettable adventures.Clive King was once born in Richmond, Surrey, in 1924.
