Gulliver's Travels (Puffin Classics)

Gulliver's Travels (Puffin Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The voyages of an Englishman carry him to such strange places as Lilliput, where people are six inches tall; Brobdingnag, a land of giants; an island of sorcerers; and a country ruled by horses.

Synopsis:

This is the complete and unabridged story of Gulliver's voyages to Lilliput, Brobdingnag, Laputa and the country of the Houyhnhnms. He sees life as a giant among the Lilliputians, as a midget in in Brobdingnag, and sees that in the country of the Houyhnhnms, horses rule and humans live as animals.

Synopsis:

Gulliver sees life from many different perspectives during the course of his exciting voyages around the world. In Lilliput he is a giant among a race of little people only six inches high; in Brobdingnag he himself seems tiny compared to the giant inhabitants; and in the country of the Houyhnhnms, horses rule and the human creatures there have the status of animals. Life back in England seems very ordinary after all that he has seen.
