Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a sterling picture-book adaptation of a literary classic, Hodges (The Hero of Bremen) and Root (Boots and His Brothers) dextrously retell the first part of Gulliver's Travels. Gulliver's shipwreck, his capture by Lilliputians, his role in the war with Blefuscu (over which end of a boiled egg one should open) and his return to England are all concisely narrated. Swift's political satire shines gently through, as does his sense of fun: the contents of Gulliver's pockets are described from the perspective of a six-inch person, with sepia-toned paintings of the actual objects an effective counterpoint. Art and text indeed mesh throughout, and such details as little-end and big-end egg statuary in the opposing nations add humor and child appeal. Ages 5-8. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
In this retelling of the original story by Jonathan Swift, Gulliver narrates the story of his own shipwreck at sea and his subsequent capture by the Lilliputians; his struggle to convince them of his harmlessness and his ultimate return to his homeland. It is an odd story for children, and I'm not sure what young children will make of even the small amount of satire retained in this retelling. But, for readers hungry for classic stories this elegant and ornately illustrated retelling will provide a feast.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Told as Gulliver might have recounted his adventures to young children, Hodges's adaptation of Part I of Gulliver's Travels is a masterful retelling of the 18th-century classic. While condensing the story considerably, she has retained not only the important details of the involved plot, but also the flavor of Swift's rich, descriptive language; she even includes occasional expressions in the Lilliputian tongue that, as in the original, are explained in the text. Furthermore, Hodges has divided the narrative neatly into nine ``chapters,'' allowing the story to be read in logical installments while also clarifying the progress of the plot. Root's stunning pen-and-watercolor illustrations do much to bring the fanciful tale to life. Her fine details add a wonderful touch of realism, providing a feast for the eye to accompany the well-chosen words. As with Hodges's wonderful retelling of the medieval tale The Kitchen Knight (Holiday, 1990), her latest work will find its way into the hearts of adventure-loving young readers and listeners, serving as an outstanding introduction to Swift's literary treasure.-Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, LaSalle Academy, Providence, RI
