Synopsis

Gulliver's Travels by Harriet Castor

One day 18th-century ship surgeon Lemuel Gulliver is shipwrecked and lands on a mysterious island. To his astonishment he finds himself captive in a kingdom of tiny people - the Lilliputs. But this is not all that befalls him while he is tossed and turned at sea. He also lands on an curious island full of giants, is a guest on an exotic island that flies through the sky, is suspended in time, and converses with talking horses and an unruly tribe of Yahoos.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
