Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2010 Fall)
This adaptation highlights the humor of Gulliver s misadventures in Lilliput; the tale culminates with Gulliver urinating to extinguish a palace fire. Aside from common plot points, the resemblance to Swift's story is slight, but the entertaining elements, reflected in Caparo's illustrations, may make readers curious about the original.
