About the Author:

Kimberly Bulcken Root is the award-winning artist of several books for children. Her work includes When the Whippoorwill Calls, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book; Hugh Can Do and The Toll Bridge Troll, both ALA Notable Books; and Gulliver in Lilliput, a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. She lives with her husband, illustrator Barry Root, and their children, Janna, Samuel, and Benjamin, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. 
 

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6?Told as Gulliver might have recounted his adventures to young children, Hodges's adaptation of Part I of Gulliver's Travels is a masterful retelling of the 18th-century classic. While condensing the story considerably, she has retained not only the important details of the involved plot, but also the flavor of Swift's rich, descriptive language; she even includes occasional expressions in the Lilliputian tongue that, as in the original, are explained in the text. Furthermore, Hodges has divided the narrative neatly into nine "chapters," allowing the story to be read in logical installments while also clarifying the progress of the plot. Root's stunning pen-and-watercolor illustrations do much to bring the fanciful tale to life. Her fine details add a wonderful touch of realism, providing a feast for the eye to accompany the well-chosen words. As with Hodges's wonderful retelling of the medieval tale The Kitchen Knight (Holiday, 1990), her latest work will find its way into the hearts of adventure-loving young readers and listeners, serving as an outstanding introduction to Swift's literary treasure.?Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, LaSalle Academy, Providence, RI
