General Note
"The text of this book was originally published in Great Britain as The iron man by Faber and Faber Limited, London, in 1968. This illustrated edition was originally published in hardcover in Great Britain... in 2010."--Colophon.
"A strange creature stalks the land, eating barbed wire and devouring tractors and plows. The farmers are mystified--and afraid. And then they glimpse him in the night: the Iron Giant, taller than a house, with glowing headlight eyes and an insatiable taste for metal. The hungry giant must be stopped at any cost. Only a young boy named Hogarth is brave enough to befriend the Iron Giant and lead him to a safe home. And only Hogarth knows where to turn when the earth needs a hero--a giant hero--as never before."--Dust jacket flap.
