Stylish caricatures do more than the odd pop-up or tipped-in booklet to enhance this expertly retold version of the hapless traveler’s misadventures...Readers who might find the original classic too long or savage will get satisfying doses of both Gulliver’s experiences and Swift’s dim view of human nature.
