The Iron Man

By Ted Hughes

Illustrated by Laura Carlin

The award-winning illustrated edition of Ted Hughes' classic tale in paperback.

Part modern fairy tale, part science fiction myth, The Iron Man describes the unexpected arrival in England of a mysterious giant "metal man" who wreaks havoc on the countryside by attacking the neighbouring farms and eating all their machinery. A young boy called Hogarth befriends him and Hogarth and the extraordinary being end up defending and saving the earth when it is attacked by a fearsome "space-bat-angel-dragon" from outer space. This children's classic, with its message of peace and hope, is known and loved all over the UK and is part of an exciting collaboration between Walker Books and Faber and Faber.
