The book Gulliver’s Travels was written by Jonathan Swift. It takes place in different, unusual places. Gulliver goes on four important voyages, the first to the city of Lilliput, the second to Brobdingnag, the third voyage to Lepta, and the last voyage to the country of Houyhnhnms. On Gulliver’s first voyage, he did not mean to go to Lilliput, but Gulliver’s ship wrecked on rocks and he had to swim to land. When he found land, he was so tired that he could not move and the people captured him. Even though they were only six inches tall, they were able to capture Gulliver. They loaded him onto a wooden platform with wheels and brought him into the city. In the city, they chained him up with twenty-four locks. While he was chained up, he made friends with the people of Lilliput and soon they took the chains off his legs but did not let him go. If he tried to escape, they shot poison arrows at him. Gulliver helped the people of Lilliput and win a battle against their enemies.
