A prize-winning edition of one of the best-loved stories in English literature. This magnificent edition of Jonathan Swift's classic adventure story contains all four of Gulliver's extraordinary voyages. Martin Jenkins has skilfully adapted the original novel, remaining true to its tone and humour while making it accessible to younger readers. Chris Riddell brings life to Swift's searing imagination in wonderful panoramic detail. Winner of the 2005 Kate Greenaway Medal and the 2005 National Literacy Association Wow! Award, and shortlisted for the British Book Design and Production Awards, 2005.
