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...?
