Timberdoodle's review
Gulliver's Travels
Lemuel Gulliver always dreamed of sailing across the seas, but he could never have imagined the places his travels would take him. On the island of Lilliput, tiny creatures no more than six inches tall capture him. In the country of Blefuscu, he is nearly squashed by an army of giants. His adventures could be the greatest tales ever told, if he survives to tell them.

Could Be Better November 27, 2012
Reviewer: MamaSon  
Gulliver in the fire scene is not necessary. Could have been better. Having stated that, my kids thought it was funny. I will have to read the original to see if that is indeed in there, but I was surprised to see this part in the book. I would recommend the book to my friends, but would inform them of the fire scene where Gulliver puts out the fire by urinating. I would let the parents make the decision with that.

Gulliver's Travels October 26, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
If you have only seen the cartoon, but not read the book, you will be surprised to know that his trip to Lilliput was only half of the book.  The other half was to a place full of giants and he was the little one.  Also, the story line is VERY different.  My main problem with the book is that, when there is a fire in Lilliput, he pees on the fire to put it our.  It gives the sound effect for the zipper being undone and a peeing sound effect, both of which I felt were unnecessary.  It also shows the mother's covering the daughter's faces when they notice what is happening. It is not something that you can mark out, as it takes up the whole page and then is referred to later.
