A mysterious creature stalks the land, eating barbed wire and devouring tractors and plows. The farmers are mystified-and afraid. Where has he come from?Nobody knows. How was he made?Nobody knows. What they do know is the Iron Giant must be stopped. Only a young boy named Hogarth is brave enough to lead the Iron Giant to a safe home. And only Hogarth knows where to turn when the earth needs a hero–a giant hero–like never before.
