    While the quote is very helpful, we can always use some more details. Take a look at this guide and see if you can edit in any more details!

  • A wild guess, but possibly the second part of Ted Hughes's The iron Man, which featured a dragon as large as Australia? Commented Jan 29, 2018 at 8:21
  • I agree with Daniel, it sounds like a 'space-bat-angel-dragon' the size of Australia to me. Commented Jan 29, 2018 at 16:58
  • Thankyou so much yes it was the iron man

Just to close off the question as per comments, it was The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

    A bare title is not an identification. There are half a dozen stories titled "The Iron Man".
