When a giant iron man is first seen he spreads fear, especially as he eats all the metal in the area, and after the people think they have finally got rid of him he reappears. Hogarth, a little boy befriends the giant and an answer is found to a way of keeping him from eating all the metal in sight, which is agreeable to the giant and everyone else. When the Earth faces a danger from a creature from out of space the iron giant has a plan and thus sets out to save the world.
A fantastical story which has been called a modern fairy tale this takes in the fear of the unknown, friendship, courage and honour, and is an enthralling and enjoyable read for children and adults alike.
The book is about a boy called Hogarth who discovers a huge man made out of iron - the Iron Man!
It leads the reader on an adventure with Hogarth and the Iron Man, involving a bunch of farmers, a hungry Iron man who eats their farm machinery and a problematic Space Bat Angel Dragon!
It is an adventrue not to be missed. We would reccommend this book for any age as even our teacher enjoyed it!
