"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.

I don't think you'll find more evocative and haunting illustrations as created by Laura Carlin for this classic read-aloud by Ted Hughes. Spare and minimal and naive, her line work and the book design itself is perfect for this tale.
