The Lovereading4Kids comment

Prize winning illustrator and political cartoonist Chris Riddell combines his skills in his brilliant illustrations for Swift’s classic story and brings to life Swift's searing imagination in wonderful panoramic detail. He captures the magic of the tiny Lilliputians tying up a seemingly giant Gulliver, how the giants of Brobdingnag deal with a now tiny Gulliver and how the horses rule in the kingdom on the Houyhnhnms. The visual jokes will delight all ages. Martin Jenkins has skilfully adapted the original novel, remaining true to its tone and humour while making it accessible to younger readers.

It is part of the Walker Illustrated Classics, a new series which brings together some of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists. These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and re-read. The classics have never looked so good.
