Read full description of the books:Out of the sludge of a polluted swamp rises a huge, terrifying figure: the Iron Woman, about to vent her wrath on the people who are destroying the land. Young Lucy, whose father works at a factory that contaminates the water, is the first to see the giant and tries desperately to reason with the great avenger. Lucy remembers hearing of another giant creature who also visited the earth, and about the boy, Hogarth, who befriended him. Soon she and Hogarth and the Iron Man all try to save the people from the Iron Woman's vengeance.
Read information about the authorEdward James Hughes was an English poet and children's writer, known as Ted Hughes. His most characteristic verse is without sentimentality, emphasizing the cunning and savagery of animal life in harsh, sometimes disjunctive lines.
The dialect of Hughes's native West Riding area of Yorkshire set the tone of his verse. At Pembroke College, Cambridge, he found folklore and anthropology of particular interest, a concern that was reflected in a number of his poems. In 1956 he married the American poet Frieda Hughes and the brother of Gerald Hughes.
