How scary is The Iron Man (book, not film)?

DD1 is in Year 3 and they are having Ted Hughes' The Iron Man read to them at the moment. They've just got to a bit where a big shadow appears over Australia and it's freaking her out a bit.

I haven't read it and just want to get a feel for how scary it's going to get!

Do a chapter a night.

It's a wonderful book to read to kids, with beautiful flowing language and a slightly mournful tinge.

Mine didn't find it scary, but I did reassure them along the way.

I love the Iron Man.

Snigger - the trouble is, they are reading it to them at school. So I have no input whatsoever. Just wanted to get a feel for whether I'm in for some disturbed nights, due to my rather hypersensitive daughter!

DS also in Yr 3. He read it himself in 3 days and loved it. No nightmare.
