About the Book
Take a walk on the wild side with this coloring book that is unlike anything you've ever encountered before. Using the original Gulliver's Travels as an inspirational jumping off point, acclaimed illustrator James Gulliver Hancock has woven in his own personal experiences and travel stories among the incredible coloring scenes in this book. This modern take on the 18th-century Gulliver's Travels plays with scale as in the land of Lilliput and the giants of Brobdingnag, while also referencing places from around our world, across many different landscapes, and even in future worlds and distant galaxies. The result is a coloring book that is playful, fanciful, and wonderful to behold. Hancock invites colorists to explore every facet of this book and make it their own with pens, pencils, paints, and more. Similar to taking a fantastic journey across new countries and cultures, Hancock encourages you to wander among the drawings, inviting you to discover details you might not have noticed at first, such as a diver swimming through flowers or a tiny climber scaling a cactus. From imaginary maps to giant birds, urban jungles to a flotilla of boats on the sea, it's perfect for anyone with a passion for travel and color.

My Take on the Book
This is a great book that has so many very cool pictures within it that will bring out some of the beautiful scenes from Gulliver's Travels There are so many small areas within the pictures that allow you to creat images with the potential for so much color. Each picture will take some time as there are so many small parts to every picture. Small children may find some of the pictures difficult because of this.
