Synopsis

The Iron Wolf, the Iron Wolf



Stands on the world with jagged fur.

The rusty Moon rolls through the sky.

The iron river cannot stir.

The iron wind leaks out a cry



Animals of air, land and sea are brilliantly imagined in this perfect introduction for young readers to the work of Ted Hughes. Part of Hughes's Collected Animal Poems, The Iron Wolf is for the youngest readers, both to listen to and explore themselves. Chris Riddell's delightful line illustrations add to the journey of discovery.
