Based on the Lilliput adventure from Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, the story centres on Fig, a Lilliputian girl, who befriends and defends the giant, Gulliver. It's an adventure that will lead Fig and her giant to stride the seas, capture an enemy fleet, and win a war. And it's an adventure in which Fig will make the most amazing friend - a friend who will open up whole new world for her, on a scale she could never have imagined. Geraldine's vivid, evocative language is perfectly matched by newcomer Jago's luminously coloured illustrations, which feature dramatic perspectives and intricate detail. An exciting and invigorating new take on this most famous of stories.
