Description


A full-color illustrated edition of one of
the world's best loved stories, Gulliver's Travels,
illustrated by world-renowned illustrator Robert Ingpen.

"Ingpen's drawings are utterly compelling"--Michael Morpurgo

When Lemuel Gulliver, a ship's surgeon, sets off on the high
seas in search of adventure, things never seem to go quite according to plan.
Through a series of disasters and misadventures, he finds himself cast upon
strange islands whose inhabitants are of the most unusual size, and the most
confusing philosophies.

Gulliver's Travels has been loved by many
generations of readers for almost 300 years, and the telling of the misfortunes
and pleasures of its eponymous hero is one of Jonathan Swift's most enduring
legacies.

The perfect gift for a curious mind. Share your beloved childhood stories with the
next generation

From the Illustrator's Note:

I found it a challenge to depict the events of Gulliver's
voyages, as he is often either too big or too small for his surroundings. Imagining
these in pictures was my main focus in the demanding task of illustrating the
writings of Jonathan Swift. Swift was writing three hundred years ago, so for
his Gulliver's Travels to meet the needs of a modern reader,
parts of his book have been adapted, and then illustrated to help the
adventures spring to life. This is what we have fondly attempted to do in this new
edition of the enduring story.
