Lilliput

She is a girl three inches tall with eyes like drops of dew. Her clothes are cut from handkerchiefs and stitched with spider silk. For half of her life, she has been trapped in a birdcage while her giant kidnapper sits beside her, writing a leather-bound book the size of a house.

Her name is Lily, and tonight she is escaping.

She is going home.

To Lilliput.

Inspired by ‘Gulliver’s Travels’, ‘Lilliput’ is an exhilarating adventure filled with cunning escape plans, evil clockmakers and very talkative parrots. Join Lily as she travels over rooftops, down chimneys and into chocolate shops on a journey to find the one place in the world where she belongs… Home.
