Description

This app contains both an interactive abridged version of Gulliver’s adventure for kids to enjoy, as well as, the original unabridged text version. Both versions feature over 20 pages of custom illustrations, an original musical score, various sound effects and interactive animations.

Swift's masterful satire is as entertaining today as it was when first published in 1726. Written with great wit and invention, Gulliver's Travels has captivated readers for nearly three centuries. Younger readers are captivated by the fantasy adventure story whilst adults enjoy the timeless satire of political punditry.

On his first voyage, Gulliver is washed ashore after a shipwreck and awakes to find himself a prisoner of a race of people one-twelfth the size of normal human beings, less than 6 inches (15cm) high, who are inhabitants of the neighbouring and rival countries of Lilliput and Blefuscu. After giving assurances of his good behaviour, he is given a residence in Lilliput and becomes a favourite of the court. From there, the book follows Gulliver's observations on the Court of Lilliput, which is intended to satirise the court of George I (King of England at the time of the writing of the Travels). Gulliver assists the Lilliputians to subdue their neighbours the Blefuscudians by stealing their fleet. However, he refuses to reduce the country to a province of Lilliput, displeasing the King and the court. Gulliver is charged with treason and sentenced to be blinded. With the assistance of a kind friend, Gulliver escapes to Blefuscu, where he spots and retrieves an abandoned boat and sails out to be rescued by a passing ship which safely takes him back home.

Inverted Pear Delivers another Great Interactive Book

:
Again, Inverted Pear delivers a modern twist to a literary classic. Another great example of the how the iPad is changing how book content is consumed by readers of all ages. I especially like the choice of having both the original text version along with the abridged version in one app.
