The Iron Man
Celebrating 50 years of Ted Hughes' classic tale, Laura Carlin's award-winning illustrations are now available in a stylish new paperback edition. 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 beautiful, small-format paperback celebrates 50 wonderful years of Ted Hughes' classic tale.
