In this contemporary reimagining of the Jonathan Swift classic, Jack Black plays Lemuel Gulliver, a travel writer who lands an assignment in Bermuda, but soon finds himself in the hidden island of Lilliput instead. He is literally a giant among the native Lilliputians, and quickly makes a big impression with them--especially after he stops the princess of Lilliput from being kidnapped by their enemies, the Belfuscians . . . and he tells them that he is President the Awesome from the Island of Manhattan. This adaptation retells the hilarious movie story for readers aged 8-12, and includes an 8-page insert of full-color images from the movie.
Dora and Boots spy the first little star of the evening and begin making their wishes. But suddenly a comet knocks Little Star out of the sky, and she falls to the ground. Join Dora and Boots as they try to get Little Star home, so that everyone can make a good-night wish.
