When Lemuel Gulliver sets off from London on a sea voyage, little does he know the many incredible and unbelievable misadventures awaiting. Shipwrecked at sea and nearly drowned, he washes ashore upon an exotic island called Liliput--where the people are only six inches tall! Next he visits a land of incredible giants called the Brobdingnagians. They are more than sixty feet tall! he travels to Lapauta, a city that floats in the city, and to Glubbdubdrib, the Island of Sorcerers. his final voyage brings him into contact with the Yahoos--a brutish race of subhumans--and an intelligent and virtuous race of horse, the Houyhnhnms.
