"A classic is something utterly strange and original, and yet as deeply familiar and necessary as your own hands. The Iron Man is like no other story in the world and, fifty years after its first publication, we need it as much as ever." -- Philip Pullman
Part modern fairy tale, part science-fiction myth, The Iron Man describes the unexpected arrival in England of a mysterious giant "metal man" who wreaks havoc on the countryside by attacking the neighbouring farms and eating all their machinery. A young boy called Hogarth befriends him, and Hogarth and the extraordinary being end up defending and saving the earth when it is attacked by a fearsome "space-bat-angel-dragon" from outer space. Ted Hughes' classic tale, with its message of peace and hope, is known and loved all over the UK and is an exciting collaboration between Walker Books and Faber and Faber. This beautiful, small-format paperback celebrates 50 wonderful years of Ted Hughes' classic tale.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a Wizarding classic, first came to
Muggle readers' attention in the book known as Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows. Now, thanks to Hermione Granger's new translation
from the ancient runes, we present this stunning edition with an
introduction, notes, and illustrations by J. K. Rowling, and
extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore. Never before have Muggles
been privy to these richly imaginative tales: "The Wizard and the
Hopping Pot," "The Fountain of Fair Fortune," "The Warlock's Hairy
Heart," "Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump," and of course,
"The Tale of the Three Brothers." But not only are they the equal
of fairy tales we now know and love, reading them gives new insight
into the world of Harry Potter.
