Summary An adaptation of Swift's satiric fantasies about Lilliput and Brobdingnag. Two of the most appealing of Gulliver's adventures: Lilliput, where the human is a giant among dwarves, and Brobdingnag, where the human is a dwarf among giants. These are the stories of Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift's classic tale of fantastic adventures in far-off lands, brilliantly retold by James Riordan in rich, vivid prose that captures all the whimsy and satire of the original in the modern language of today's children. The illustrations by noted artist Victor Ambrus are rich and colorful, delicate in detail, strong in composition, and permeated with humor. And the insightful -- often scathing -- social commentary that Swift wove into his original tale remains intact, providing fascinating reading for adults as well as children.
