"For the first time in his life, Gulliver felt ashamed of himself and his fellow-humans."

Gulliver is a travel-hungry and adventurous ship's doctor, who has the odd misfortune of being shipwrecked four times in as many voyages.

Through Jonathan Coe's expert retelling of Swift's famous satire about our human hubris and desires, today's young readers are swept along as Gulliver finds himself a giant among tiny humans in Lilliput; a tiny human among giants in Brobdignag; on the flying island of Laputa, with its most impractical intellectuals; and finally in the land of the Houyhnhnms, talking horses who think precious little of human "Yahoos".

Beautifully illustrated - a treasure of a gift - Mumsnet

Literary, adult authors retell classics (with terrific illustrations) for a younger generation - Daily Telegraph

This magnificently retold story will bewitch with irresistible allure, and open the path to many memorable adventures - Bookanista

Marvellously written... engrossing - Fluxlings

Handsomely illustrated... Offers younger readers vivid, accessible first encounters with some literary heavyweights - Metro

Beguiling, accessible and absurdly funny - Herald

A children's book of the year 2013 - Time Out London

Perfect for readers old, young or in-between - Mark Perryman, Huffington Post

Loyal to the original but given a new twist in the process. Oh, and lavishly illustrated too - Mark Perryman
