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.
