Iron Man by Ted Hughes

Book Description

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 he 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 here presented as part of an exciting new collaboration between Walker Books and Faber and Faber.

Books By Author Ted Hughes

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)

When a towering giant made of iron appears out of nowhere, young Hogarth sees him not as a monster, but a friend. This illustrated edition, featuring the complete text, special effects such as foldouts and die-cuts, and striking full-color artwork on every page, offers the ideal family read-aloud.
