Synopsis: Explores the strange and wonderful "moon-world". The terrain is fantastic, its creatures both intriguing and grotesque, but all is touched by the Poet Laureate's moon magic.

About the Author: Ted Hughes (1930-1998) was born in Yorkshire. His first book, The Hawk in the Rain, was published in 1957 by Faber and Faber and was followed by many volumes of poetry and prose for adults and children. He received the Whitbread Book of the Year for two consecutive years for his last published collections of poetry, Tales from Ovid (1997) and Birthday Letters (1998). He was Poet Laureate from 1984, and in 1998 he was appointed to the Order of Merit.
