Lemuel Gulliver always dreamed of travelling the world. But when a violent storm claims his ship and casts him adrift among uncharted lands, he is taken to places that he could not even dream of. Travelling to the nation of Lilliput, where the inhabitants measure just centimetres tall, and to Brobdingnag, where they tower into the sky like giants, Gulliver voyages to an island floating above the clouds, visits a race of immortals, and finds himself stranded in a land ruled by horses. Face to face with warring armies and power-hungry kings, each new journey makes Gulliver more desperate to find a way back home. But once he discovers the truth about his own land and himself, returning home becomes the last thing he desires. Written by world-renowned satirist Jonathan Swift, "Gulliver's Travels" is one of the most gripping and poignant adventures ever told.

Lemuel Gulliver is just an ordinary guy working in the mail room of the New York Tribune. No one ever takes him seriously, until he gets his big break and is sent on a writing trip to investigate the Bermuda Triangle.
But instead of fun in the sun, Gulliver is shipwrecked and lands on an island called Lilliput. There he convinces the population of tiny, tiny people that where he comes from, he is 'President the Awesome', an intergalactic warrior and the person who invented basketball.
But can Gulliver really live up to his newly created giant persona, or in the end will he go back to being his scared old self?
