The Iron Man

By Ted Hughes

Illustrated by Laura Carlin

Celebrating 50 years of Ted Hughes' classic tale, Laura Carlin's award-winning illustrations are now available in a stylish new paperback edition.

Celebrating 50 years of The Iron Man. 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. Ted Hughes' classic tale, with its message of peace and hope, is known and loved all over the UK and is an exciting collaboration between Walker Books and Faber and Faber. This beautiful paperback is a landmark 50th anniversary edition.
