Boy Giant: Son of Gulliver

“We were the truth of our own story.
Me, and the two tiny people on my shoulder, in the middle of the sea…”

War has forced Omar and his mother to leave their home in Afghanistan and venture across the sea to Europe. When their boat sinks, and Omar finds himself alone, with no hope of rescue, it seems as if his story has come to an end.

But it is only just beginning.

Boy Giant: Son of Gulliver is stunning and timely story of adventure, the power of rescue, and humanity’s infinite capacity for good – even when those humans are very small indeed. A thrilling high-sea adventure inspired by the classic story of Gulliver’s Travels, it is also a gripping modern narrative about the need for cooperation and refuge, and the importance of kindness to strangers.
