Gulliver's Travels (Sterling Unabridged Classics) Hardback
Illustrated by Scott McKowen
Part of the Unabridged Classics series
At once satiric and magical, rich in philosophy and astonishing adventure, "Gulliver's Travels" transports children into worlds unknown.
The entire voyage is seen through the eyes of Lemuel Gulliver, a ship's surgeon whose amazing account begins with a shipwreck on the high seas and continues as he encounters a race of miniature people known as Lilliputians; giant Brobdingnagians; the foolish Laputians; the very humanoid Yahoos; and finally, the gentle and wise horse-like Houhynhyms - beings far superior to Man.
Will Gulliver ever make it home again?

Review by KendraRenee
Such a witty, clever, fun critique of society. Like a true traveler, he pushes the limits of what one is naturally inclined to believe is possible or normal. I would read this book again and again.
Review by DanaJean
I thought this was an okay book. I understand what Swift was trying to accomplish with his 4 different worlds--the lessons he was trying to teach--but I wasn't that engaged with the stories. There were some interesting bits of writing, but overall, just one of those classics I felt I needed to read to be a well-rounded person. Yes, I am much rounder now but it has nothing to do with this book.
