    Is this a Middle Grade or a Children's book? That is the question, and why I gave it three stars. The beginning was wonderful, but I thought it was a Children's chapter book and when the ending came it was seriously too violent and scary for a Children's story. That is when I thought it might be intended as MG, but then the story would be too childish. Therein lies the major problem. Plus, there was this mind-reading thing and I didn't remember Lilliputians being able to read minds in the origin [...]

    "To remind ourselves: we all come from kindness. We all sprang from the same place. The world is a gift." Sweet, cute story about a tiny girl called Lily who is from Lilliput. It's idea behind this story is obviously fromGulliver's Travels, which I have not read but might do after having read this one."She learned that the world was full of cages, and not all were built of iron. Some were made of lies or promises or secrets or questions."

    Lilly of Lilliput is crabbing on the beach one day when a giant appears out of the ocean and snags her. She doesn't know this giant is Gulliver, yes that Gulliver, who has returned to Lilliput in order to kidnap a Lilliputian so he can finally provide evidence in England that his tales of travels are actually true.Poor Lilly is kept prisoner in a bird cage, spending her time devising various ways to escape, all of which have so far failed or so she thinks. In fact one of her attempts actually ha [...]

    Lilliput is a spin-off or fan fiction of Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. Gulliver has gone to the land of Lilliput and kidnapped Lily so he can restore his reputation and prove to the world that his travels were the truth. He is so bent on this mission that he does not see the immorality of holding a person captive against his or her will. When Lily puts Escape Plan Thirty-Three into motion she has just about given up hope. She is helpless against Gulliver's tyranny and authority. It isn't [...]

    Since he came back to London after his travels, Gulliver only has been ridiculed and laughed at. Nobody believes his stories about small people and talking horses. He needs a proof. That's why Gulliver comes back to Lilliput and kidnaps Lilly, who would be the proof he needs. Now they live in an attic in London while Gulliver writes a book about his travels, and Lilly tries endlessly to escape and come back to Lilliput.This is the start point for Lilliput, a very well written fantastic story abo [...]

    Gulliver's Travels, as Sam Gayton here also notes, was immediately and recurringly referenced, written about, continued. It's a book that, though perfectly suitable for younger readers, often because of its satirical nature is picked up by adults.But Gayton here reminds us why children may want to try the original. He has created a perfect sequel to Swift's book, that picks up in Lilliput years after Gulliver has first left it. Lily is kidnapped by Gulliver when she is only six moons old. Taken [...]

    Everyone knows about crazy old Gulliver and his travels to an island filled with little people but what they don't know is that he returned to Lilliput and kidnapped a young girl named Lilly to prove to everyone in London that he was telling the truth. Poor Lilly is kept in a birdcage and keeps trying time and again to escape Gulliver's clutches. Until one day when she meets Finn, the clockmaker's apprentice who will do almost anything to help her with her quest to return home. This delightfully [...]


  • Amanda

    This is good story for the 8-10 age-range. It (obviously) makes many references to Gulliver's Travels, simplifying the elements for a mid-grade audience. While this naturally involves removing a lot of the cruder parts of the original (Gulliver is amusingly appalled by Lily's Liliputian curse words), it does not flinch from showing some real cruelty. Don't skip the author's afterword, which includes some charming Gulliverian trivia!*According to FTC standards I disclose that this book was receiv [...]


  • Lou

    I enjoy reading children books because they're funny and pretty easy to read. This one was fabulous. I loved the story and it was quite addictive too.I listened to Gulliver's travels audiobook long time ago so I didn't remember much of the story but Lilliput is a great standalone and it can be read separately.One thing that I didn't like was Lily. Sometimes she was annoying and I found myself hating her and I couldn't stand her more. That's why I cannot give this book a higher rating. However I [...]


  • Dale

    This is the best fantasy book I've read since "The Grimm Legacy" by Polly Shulman. I'm not a big fan of the Fantasy genre, but this one had sparked a new interest. I loved Lily and how she helps change the people and animals she comes into contact with. I loved doll houses as a child and this book reminded me of that with all the detailed descriptions of her surroundings. Thank you Sam for rekindling my imagination.


  • Melanie Thompson

    Taking up where Gulliver's Travels left off, this enchanting tale tells what happened when Gulliver' tak s Lilly, a Lilliputian, home to prove his stories are true. Lilly is miserable and plots to escape. Will escape plan #33 be the one?With plenty of heroes and villains, a kindly chocolatier and a wicked clock-maker, Lilliput is delightful, exciting, and sure to please.


  • Rosalie

    I really appreciated this revisit of the Gulliver's Travels stories. I see that there are other authors who have ventured there but I haven't read too many of those. The story caught my attention and I was hooked, the pictures were charming to look at as well.Now I want to read the other book I had seen featured by Sam Gayton called "The Snow Merchant".


  • Sally Hannoush

    This was a great story. I loved the point of view of a young Lilliput girl. Seeing things through her eyes made me stop and think or other things that would have been seen differently. The story is great for all ages and has wonderful creative imagery.


  • Varsha Seshan

    I did not enjoy Gulliver's Travels much, but picked this one up anyway - and enjoyed every page! And the only reason I got to read it is because it was part of the Mythical Maze challenge this year. (Seniors)varshaseshan/blog/read


  • Jenni Schell

    This book was FANTASTIC. I loved every minute that I was reading it. It had so much that was familiar that it really felt like going back home in a book. Great job.

    This is a beautifully illustrated adventure that transports us to the time and place of Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels. Author Sam Gayton and Illustrator Alice Ratteree share a welcome revisit to the magical characters and thrills of Swift's imagination and beyond. I thoroughly enjoyed this warm return to friends from the past.

    Its nice that she makes friends. It was very creative. (L, aged 5)

    I read this [basically fan fiction] after reading Gulliver's Travels and it was an interesting thought experiment.

    Delightful fan fiction from an old tale.

    Review originally posted at Views from the Tesseract: shanshad1.wordpress/2015/Gulliver’s tales of tiny people still resonate. It’s rather funny. My kids have lately fallen in love with Gulliver’s Travels (1939, Paramount Pictures) despite the animation’s age. The story of the “giant” Gulliver who comes to the land of Lilliput where he helps stop a war and unite two kingdoms is a charming and delightful one for kids. It’s a good reminder that no matter how old or dated a medium mig [...]

    Such a sweet little tale!


  • Robin

    Lilliput was just one of the places Lemuel Gulliver visited on his well-known travels. Even if you don't remember much about the other stops on his trip, it's very likely that if the title Gulliver's Travels means anything to you, you've heard of this island nation whose miniature people look up to us regular humans as we look up to giants. So imagine the terror six-moon-old Lily feels when Gulliver rears up out of the sea, making a return trip just to snatch her and bring her back to England as [...]

With the help of the Downtrodden watchmaker's apprentice from downstairs and a jive-talking parrot, Lily must outwit, outplay and outlast on a daring and risky home seeking mission.Lilliput was an out-of-the-box, pleasant surprise for me to say the least. Not having a particula [...]

    Sam Gayton's Lilliput is a fantastical novel based in 18th century London. The tale, heavily inspired by the classic Gulliver's Travels, opens on the mythical island of Lilliput, home to a kingdom of miniature people, the Lilliputians. All is marvelous on the island until Lily, a three-inch-tall Lilliputian child, is kidnapped by the "giant" Gulliver and whisked away to London to be exhibited as evidence of Lilliput's existence. However, Lily has plans of her own: escape. With the help of an ens [...]


  • Marsha

    Gulliver’s Travels was the inspiration for this utterly original bit of fantasy and it’s a taut, swiftly paced action adventure. The author could have had the Lilliputian Lily racing all over London, seeing the sights and meeting loads of new people. That would have been fun but an entirely different book. What we have here is a race against time (Lilliputians age faster than humans, whom they term giants) and a need to get away from Lily’s captor—no less than Lemuel Gulliver himself.Thi [...]
