About the Book

A beautiful 50th Anniversary edition of The Iron Man, the bestselling classic by Ted Hughes, with the stunning original wood engravings from Andrew Davidson and an introduction by Michael Morpurgo.

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
