Synopses & Reviews
A retelling of a classic adventure from Swift's Gulliver's Travels, featuring colorful illustrations and a simple text, concerns a shipwrecked Englishman's adventures in the land of the six-inch-tall Lilliputians.
"Told as Gulliver might have recounted his adventures to young children, Hodges's adaptation of Part I of Gulliver's Travels is a masterful retelling of the 18th-century classic....[An] outstanding introduction to Swift's literary treasure." Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, School Library Journal
"In a sterling picture-book adaptation of a literary classic, Hodges and Root dextrously retell the first part of Gulliver's Travels....Art and text indeed mesh throughout, and such details as little-end and big-end egg statuary in the opposing nations add humor and child appeal. Ages 5-8." Publishers Weekly
Shipwrecked, a seaman finds himself tied down by six-inch high Lilliputians.
