‘My name is Gulliver, and I have a tale to tell that will make your hair stand up and your mouth hang open.’ So starts Mary Webb’s robust and lively retelling of Swift’s classic and it will indeed have children hanging on Gulliver’s every word. Two of his best-known adventures are included: his experience in Lilliput, where he is a giant, and in Brobdingnag, where the people are giants. It’s fantastical stuff, and often very funny. Webb doesn’t duck any of Swift’s scatological humour, and she keeps his satire fresh too – sadly many of his digs at human behaviour are as relevant today as they were in the 1700s. Lauren O’Neill’s illustrations are equally vigorous and this is a thoroughly handsome edition. ~ Andrea Reece
