Iron Giant Returns
Ted Hughes's The Iron Man (1968) under its more familiar title, The Iron Giant, with illustrations by British artist Laura Carlin. The art is somewhat strange making this an atypical children's book, but the story, which inspired a 1999 animated feature film, is sure to captive readers young and old, who may be drawn further in through the inventiveness of Carlin's designs. Previews of the art can be found at Walker Books, publishers of the British version.
