How can mankind stop the dreadful destruction caused by the Iron Man? He cannot be kept down. But when the Space-Bat-Angel-Dragon, a terrible monster from outer space, tries to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who helps to save the world… Fusing rich elements from myth, science fiction and fantasy with a compelling message about the power of peace, The Iron Man smoulders with vivid imagery, complemented by dramatic black-and-white artwork. Written to be read aloud and to stimulate young imaginations, this fierce and beautiful modern classic from former Poet Laureate Ted Hughes deserves a home in every classroom.
“Reckoned one of the greatest of modern fairy tales.”Observer
“Hughes has never written more compellingly.” Robert Nye, The Times
Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany The Iron Man.
