Gullivers Travels: Voyage to Lilliput
The first adventure in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, retold by Martin Jenkins and illustrated by British Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell. In the best-known tale from Jonathan Swift’s classic satire, Lemuel Gulliver survives a shipwreck only to find himself on a strange island with even stranger inhabitants: miniature humans, no bigger than his hand. Gulliver’s adventure on Lilliput has been adapted by award-winning author Martin Jenkins in a witty, accessible retelling that remains faithful to the darkly comic tone of Swift’s original. Beloved by adults and children alike, Gulliver’s first journey is illustrated in brilliant panoramic detail by the masterful Chris Riddell in a wonderfully eccentric complement to the text. First published in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver, Jenkins and Riddell’s Kate Greenaway Medal–winning adaptation of all four tales, Voyage to Lilliput is now available as a standalone volume.
