Overview

Gulliver’s Travels for Kids is a crisp new retelling of Johnathan Swift’s classic work. Acclaimed author Luke Hayes makes the entire strange and gripping tale available for young readers.

First, we’re transported to Lilliput, where folks are only a few inches tall and where Gulliver puts out a fire in a most unusual way. Then to Brobdingnag, where our hero finds himself in a land of giants. More adventures follow: flying islands, wacky inventions, mad scientists, and mysterious magicians. Finally, Gulliver arrives at the country where horses rule, where humans are beastly Yahoos and where the humane values of the book finally become clear.

The Luke Hayes version retains all of Swift’s imaginative flights and wry humor. A natural storyteller, Hayes unfolds the tale in easy-to-read dialogue and fast-paced prose, remaining faithful to the story’s tone and essence.

Gulliver’s Travels for Kids will enable 8- to 12-year-old readers to enjoy this timeless classic in a hip, cool and highly enjoyable form. It makes great bedtime reading for younger children, too.

Meet the Author

Luke Hayes is an award-winning children’s book author from upstate New York. He has written stories (some of them pretty scary), novels and nonfiction. He has also adapted many classic tales for young readers.

His friends call him a born storyteller. He loves to spin yarns, make up plots and turn dreams into reality.

In his younger days, Luke did a lot of traveling himself. Maybe that’s why Gulliver’s adventures appeal to him. He journeyed through Africa, India, and Australia, and lived for several years in Ireland, the home of Jonathan Swift. In the process, he recorded stories from all over the world, both tall tales and short ones.

In addition to working as a full-time writer, Luke likes to juggle, walk on his hands, ride a unicycle, and perform magic tricks. He believes in helping others and has worked for several years as a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician.

Luke takes great pleasure in making some of the world’s best-loved stories available for kids.
