Gulliver's Travels: Voyage to Lilliput by Jonathan Swift

Voyage to Lilliput, the first adventure in Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, is illustrated by new Children's Laureate Chris Riddell. The first adventure of Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels - the voyage to Lilliput - is illustrated by Children's Laureate Chris Riddell in brilliant, panoramic detail. His pictures complement Martin Jenkins' skilful retelling which is witty and accessible while remaining faithful to the darkly comic tone of Swift, arguably the foremost prose satirist in the English language. Voyage to Lilliput is taken from Jenkins and Riddell's original hardback, Jonathan Swift's Gulliver, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal.
