TED HUGHES (1930-1998) was an eminent English poet who was named poet laureate in 1985. He was married to Sylvia Plath.

LAURA CARLIN is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London. Her work has appeared in publications such as The Guardian and Vogue, and has garnered numerous accolades and honors including the Quentin Blake Award for illustration two years running. She teaches part-time at several universities and is currently involved in setting up London's first-ever illustration gallery.
When a towering giant made of iron appears out of nowhere, young Hogarth sees him not as a monster, but a friend. The townspeople are terrified of the giant and devise a plan to bring him down. But Hogarth believes in his friend, and rescues him when no one else will. Together, they teach the people of the village and beyond to conquer their fears, for beneath the giant's rough armor there beats a mighty heart.

The late Ted Hughes, former poet laureate of England, wrote this modern fairy tale in 1968 (which went on to inspire the popular 1999 Warner Brothers animated feature). This illustrated edition, featuring the complete text, special effects such as foldouts and die-cuts, and striking full-color artwork on every page, offers the perfect family read-aloud.
