Gulliver's Travels Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Katy Elphinstone

Part of the Real Reads series

Description

An amazing sight met my eyes. All around me were dozens of human creatures a little less than six inches high, chattering together in high-pitched voices in a strange language. When Lemuel Gulliver is shipwrecked in the Indian Ocean, it's the start of a series of adventures stranger than he could possibly have imagined.

After the tiny inhabitants of Lilliput become suspicious of Gulliver, they plan to kill their huge visitor.

What deadly scheme do they come up with? Gulliver makes a friend in the land of the giants -Glumdalclitch, a nine year old girl.

Can she protect him from the frightening creatures in Brobdingnag?

Once he has said goodbye to the peculiar scientists in their flying island, Gulliver discovers the fierce and brutal Yahoos.

Will he ever return home safely to his wife and family in England?

Real Reads are accessible texts designed to support the literacy development of primary and lower secondary age children while introducing them to the riches of our international literary heritage.

Each book is a retelling of a work of great literature from one of the world's greatest cultures, fitted into a 64-page book, making classic stories, dramas and histories available to intelligent young readers as a bridge to the full texts, to language students wanting access to other cultures, and to adult readers who are unlikely ever to read the original versions.
