This simple retelling of Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels focuses on the first voyage—Gulliver's time on the island of Lilliput. It is a great way to introduce newly independent readers to this classic adventure.
Gulliver loves the life he's leading. As a doctor on a ship he travels to some very interesting places. But life at sea can be dangerous, too. Gulliver's ship is destroyed in a storm, and it takes every bit of his strength to swim to shore, where he falls asleep all alone. But he is not alone for long! Gulliver awakens to find himself being held captive on an island called Lilliput by people who are only six inches tall! Although they don't trust him at first, soon enough the Lilliputians see how handy it can be to have Gulliver around—at least some of the time. And Gulliver adds another exotic, exciting, and very funny adventure to his life experiences!
