Ted Hughes (1930-1998) was born in Yorkshire. His first book, The Hawk in the Rain, was published in 1957 by Faber and Faber and was followed by many volumes of poetry and prose for adults and children. He received the Whitbread Book of the Year for two consecutive years for his last published collections of poetry, Tales from Ovid (1997) and Birthday Letters (1998). He was Poet Laureate from 1984, and in 1998 he was appointed to the Order of Merit.

Product Description

Review

"A stunning production... Spectacular." (Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times) "This attractive gift book with its distinctive artwork... feels very modern and relevant. The message of co-operation and peace applies to any era and the stark illustration conjures up an atmosphere of suspicion and fear until the red-hot fires of the ultimate contest give way to the beautiful music of the spheres." (Daily Mail) "A stunning classic gift edition... Laura Carlin's dramatic composition has an emotional depth and sense of excitement that lends itself beautifully to the story." (Lindsey Stainer, Bookseller) "This new edition of Ted Hughes' wonderful Iron Man is an absolute delight. Stunning visual images accompany the familiar texts to great effect, and the overall production is superb - everyone will want one of these!" (The Bookseller Children's Booksellers' (Choice)"

This is such a brilliant story. I first read this to my class of eight year old children when I began teaching over 20 years ago. Then over the years I have revisited it with many other children and they have unfailingly loved it. The film version in the 1980's, renamed The Iron Giant, was good but the book is infinitely better. This edition has some beautiful illustrations although for me the original black and white images by Andrew Davidson remain iconic.

The story is a classic and still aa strange and magical as I found it as a child. The illustrations for this edition are often beautiful, my only criticism is that several times the illustrator makes what I think are odd choices about what to depict, showing lots of little people or houses, rather than the iron man, which is obviously what my 4-year-old is interested in seeing. But it's still a lovely edition.
