Lily is a young girl who lives in Lilliput. Her life is going pretty well until a giant named Lemuel Gulliver takes her away and traps her. There she must go through a smelly sock, many escape plans that fail, and watch all of her hope fade away. After a long miserable time a boy named Finn saves her and together they embark on a mission to get her back to her home, Lilliput. Together they go through giants, clocks, and giant teacups to save her. They soon find a little help along the way that comes in hand later along the road.

While being a very well put together book, it has many major flaws. The book to me felt like an idea that had already been used. Also, the book is based of of another book so it felt like you had to read that to get the whole jist of the book. Even though the book is interesting, it follows a predictable path where a problem will come up and the characters will be forced into solving it and taking action. After that a new one will arise and it will start all over again.
