(back cover)
". . . the most pernicious race of little odious vermin that nature ever suffered to crawl upon the surface of the earth."

When Lemuel Gulliver is washed up on the distant shore of Lilliput, he becomes a giant among men. As his travels continue, Gulliver is dwarfed by the people of Brobdingnag and bewildered by the customs of the Laputians. Will Gulliver find the humanity he seeks in the Land of the Talking Horses?

Jonathan Swift's timeless story is vividly and faithfully retold in graphic novel format.
