The late Poet Laureate’s sequel to his iconic The Iron Man is beautifully produced in this new edition which also includes the original illustrations. The Iron Woman comes on a mission blazing with a terrifying anger. She has heard the cries of the creatures on land and in the sea and in the sky whose lives are on the brink of extinction because of man’s wilful destruction of the world in which they live. Now the Iron Woman wants revenge. And who better to help her than the Iron Man himself. A thought-provoking and moving fable.
Lucy understands the Iron Woman's rage and she too wants to save the water creatures from their painful deaths. But she also wants to save her town from total destruction. She needs help. Who better to call on but Hogarth and the Iron Man...?
A companion volume to the Faber Children's Classics The Iron Man. This new, child-friendly setting will be treasured by a new generation of readers.

Ted Hughes was born on 17 August 1930 in Mytholmroyd, a small mill town in West Yorkshire. His father made portable wooden buildings. The family moved to Mexborough, a coal-mining town in South Yorkshire, when Hughes was seven. His parents took over a newsagent and tobacconist shop, and eventually he went to the local grammar school. In 1948 Hughes won an Open Exhibition to Pembroke College, Cambridge. Before going there, he served two years National Service in the Royal Air Force. Between leaving Cambridge and becoming a teacher, he worked at various jobs, finally as a script-reader for Rank at their Pinewood Studios. ...More About Ted Hughes
