Melding science fiction with fairy tale, Ted Hughes’s children’s classic The Iron Man tells the story of a gigantic metal robot who appears out of nowhere, crashing onto the beach and shattering into many parts. He is discovered by Hogarth, a young boy.
The Iron Man came to the top of the cliff. How far had he walked? Nobody knows. Where had he come from? Nobody knows. How was he made? Nobody knows.
With strong environmental messages, Ted Hughes’ words resonate now more than ever. Chris Mould has updated the book to create an exciting new edition for the 21st century featuring stunning illustrations. Chris Mould will tell you how he approached reimagining Ted Hughes’ classic and show you some of his striking artwork for the book.
Chris Mould was born in Bradford. He began drawing at an early age and went to art school at the age of sixteen. He won a Nottingham Children’s Book Award and was commended by the Sheffield Children’s Book Awards. Chris likes to write and draw the kind of books he would have liked to have had on his shelf as a boy. He lives in Yorkshire.
In this family-friendly event, Chris tells you how he approached reimagining the book and shows you some of his brilliant artwork.
