How the Whale Became by Ted Hughes

Book Description

Long ago when the world was brand new, before animals or birds, the sun rose into the sky and brought the first day. To begin with, all the creatures were pretty much alike - very different from what they are now. Those that wanted to be lions practised being lions. But there were other creatures - including the whale, the elephant, the cat and the donkey - that came about in different ways...Ted Hughes' classic text is accompanied by the beautiful illustrations of Jackie Morris to bring a lyrical and witty version of the creation myths to young readers.

Ted Hughes Bestiary by Ted Hughes Ted Hughes Bestiary, Hardback (September 2014)

Originally the medieval bestiary or book of animals set out to establish safe distinctions - between them and us - but Ted Hughes' poetry works always in a contrary direction: showing what man and beast have in common, the reservoir from which we all draw. This book deals with his work.

Iron Man by Ted Hughes Iron Man, Paperback (November 2013)

Mankind must put a stop to the dreadful destruction by the Iron Man and set a trap for him, but he cannot be kept down. Then, when a terrible monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save the world.

By Heart by Ted Hughes By Heart, Paperback (March 2012)

What has happened to the lost art of memorising poetry? Why do we no longer feel that it is necessary to know the most enduring, beautiful poems in the English language 'by heart'? This title explains how we can overcome the problem by using a memory system that becomes easier the more frequently it is practised.

Iron Giant by Ted Hughes Iron Giant, Hardback (September 2011)

Author Biography - Ted Hughes

Ted Hughes is ranked as one of the best poets of his generation. His final two collections won the Whitbread Prize for Book of the Year in successive years. He was Poet Laureate from 1984 until his death in 1998. In the same year he had been appointed to the Order of the Merit. He wrote children's stories and poetry throughout his life. Jackie Morris lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales, with children, dogs and cats. Ever since leaving college, Bath Academy of Art, at least one cat has watched over her while she works. Big cats and small are a passion in her life, and it was while reading and watching her cat Pixie sleeping in winter that the idea for I am Cat came about. Among her many books for Frances Lincoln are The Ice Bear, The Snow Leopard, Tell me a Dragon, and How the Whale Became by Ted Hughes. To visit Jackie's website click here
