Gulliver's Travels: Voyage to Lilliput

By Jonathan Swift
Illustrated by Chris Riddell

Voyage to Lilliput, the first adventure in Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, is illustrated by new Children's Laureate Chris Riddell.

The first adventure of Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels – the voyage to Lilliput – is illustrated by Children's Laureate Chris Riddell in brilliant, panoramic detail. His pictures complement Martin Jenkins' skilful retelling which is witty and accessible while remaining faithful to the darkly comic tone of Swift, arguably the foremost prose satirist in the English language. Voyage to Lilliput is taken from Jenkins and Riddell's original hardback, Jonathan Swift's Gulliver, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal.

  • The original edition, Jonathan Swift's Gulliver (2004) was winner of the 2005 Kate Greenaway Medal and the 2005 National Literacy Association Wow! Award.
  • Jonathan Swift's Gulliver (2004) was also shortlisted for the British Book Design and Production Awards, 2005.
  • "This handsome book must be the year's most impressive illustrative feat." - The Sunday Times on Jonathan Swift's Gulliver.
