Gulliver's Travels

Review Date: 05/24/2018 Swift, Jonathan
Grades: 8 - 10
Satirical commentary on human nature about adventures of an Englishman's voyage. Lots of bathroom references, religious references, and procreation references which are wholly inappropriate but written in such sophisticated and ironical language that a child reading this story for adventure may miss it. However, an older child reading it carefully (i.e. for school) will encounter all sorts of unacceptable descriptions.
