I gave this to my other half to read after I'd finished it (in less than an hour, during a break at work) and he summed up this modern(ist) classic very simply: "I love how really good writers for adults can just knock out fantastic books for kids too."
Ted Hughes especially isn't one of the most immediate names you'd think of when it comes to writing fantastic children's stories - yet that's what this is, with all the layers and meanings you want it to have, from a simple tale to a deeper, more complicated, metaphor for life and the world around us.
