Travelers visit many strange places. They see very many wonderful things. When they return home, they tell wonderful stories about what they have seen. Thus begins Jonathan Swift's immortal Lemuel Gulliver in his witty masterpiece, Gulliver's Travels. Retold for the modern young reader while retaining all of the tongue-in-cheek charm and political satire of the original classic, the adventures of the keenly observant Gulliver in Lilliput and Brobdingnag are certain to enchant a whole new generation of listeners.

    " Great for teaching about different cultures. Gulliver had to observe how the other cultures worked and fit into their society. He learned to appreciate things about each place he went to without judging it based on what he was accustomed to. "

    " I read this book in my 1st grade.. The story was actually children's story, since the story was too predictable, especially for those who like unreadable story. But I found this story interesting to read :p "

    " An amazing novel, especially considering the fact that it was written in 1726. Beware of the Yahoo! ... especially since you'll discover that those savages are closer to yourself than you think. In fact, perhaps comparing Yahoos to humans is an insult to Yahoos? "

    " I like A Modest Proposal better, but this is still a great piece of literature. One thing about it is that I would really read it one section at a time. It's a tough piece to read all the way through since it can start to slow down after awhile. "
