Gulliver in Lilliput by Lisa Findlay - OPTIONAL

Findlay, Lisa Gulliver in Lilliput (Step into Reading) 48 pgs. Random House Books for Young Readers, 2010. EARLY READER

Content - G

This is a short adaptation of Gulliver's Travels. Gulliver's ship was destroyed at sea and he washed up on the island of Lilliput. He woke to many small people and ropes all over his body. Once he won over the citizens, they took off his chains but he had to remain in Lilliput to help out. He stopped wars, and even put out a fire by peeing on it.

I liked the book until it talked about peeing on a castle to put out the fire. The picture showed him peeing, although not in the graphic sense, and it seemed to take away from the story.

OPTIONAL - EL. Anna M, teacher.
