Publisher's Summary

Lemuel Gulliver sets out on a series of travels, but each time he finds himself shipwrecked in new and unfamiliar lands. And how unfamiliar! In Lilliput, everyone is tiny, and it takes thousands of them to capture him; in Brobdingnag, they’re huge and treat him as a sort of living toy; in Laputa, they live on a floating island inventing impossibly mad projects; and the Houyhnhnms are horses! But through all his adventures, Gulliver learns to see humans in a different way, too.
One of the world’s great works of fiction, Gulliver’s Travels keeps all its humour and satire in this new retelling, which uses Swift’s words in the main, simplifying and clarifying them where necessary.
