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.
