9780192798978: Gulliver's Travels

Embark on a journey with one of the greatest world travelers of all time. Ride with him across the South Seas to the miniature island of Liliput, where people grow no taller than six inches high. Round the Cape of Good Hope to the land of Brobdingnag, home of giants tall as church steeples, and sail on to the exotic lands of Laputa, Luggnagg, Glubbdubdrip, and more. Share Gulliver's incredible adventures, from his singlehanded defeat of an entire naval fleet (albeit one whose ships are toy boat-sized), to his harrowing abduction by a giant eagle, to his unfortunate dunking in a reservoir-sized pot of cream by a jealous dwarf!
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.

About the Author:


James Riordan has written many books for children, including many translations of Russian tales. His Peter and the Wolf is published in cloth and paperback by Oxford.
Victor G. Ambrus was born in Budapest. He has illustrated well over 200 books and twice won the Kate Greenaway medal.

Review:


"Large or small, Gulliver cuts a heroic figure in Ambrus's pervasive, free-wheeling illustrations; a palatable, well-blended appetizer."--Kirkus Reviews


"A romp for young readers."--Booklist


"Jonathan Swift may have written it first, but this new adaptation is sure to please today's children.... The familiar yarns of Lilliput and Brobdingnag are spun in an entertaining fashion. The imaginative storyline is a timeless masterpiece. The language of this version is accessible for children and reads quickly.... A wonderful way to introduce a classic into the classroom."--Books.com
