Waterstones Says

Ted Hughes’s seminal children’s novel of a giant iron figure on the loose in a farming community manages to say profound things about friendship, kindness and isolation in a brilliantly thrilling and imaginative fashion.

A beautiful new edition of The Iron Man, the bestselling classic by Ted Hughes. The Iron Man came to the top of the cliff. Where had he come from? Nobody knows. How was he made? Nobody knows. 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. 'Gripping . . a classic.' Phillip Pullman 'A visionary tale.' Michael Morpurgo 'One of the greatest of modern fairy tales.' Observer
