Summary

A classic tale about a boy and a robot defending Earth from a creature in outer space.

Mankind must put a stop to the dreadful destruction by the Iron Man and set a trap for him, but he cannot be kept down. Then, when a terrible monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save the world.

Starts superbly with a clanking iron giant toppling from a cliff and lying smashed on the rocks below. Then his various parts get up and search for each other. Hughes has never written more compellingly. Reckoned one of the greatest of modern fantasy stories.

Book banded for guided reading by the Institute of Education - short, accessible novel / challenging themes of how to deal with things we don't understand / potent imagery, metaphor
