  • "Martin Jenkins s retelling of Swift s great satire in "Gulliver", illustrated by Chris Riddell, proves a splendid reminder that 18th century folk were every bit as silly, selfish and fearfull as we are Those who persevere will taste delicious ironies, including Riddell s witless politician in the image of Tony Blair". The Sydney Morning Herald
