The Return of the “Antelope”

By Willis Hall


The adventure of the Antelope began one day at the seaside in 1899, when Gerald and Philippa left their picnic hamper on the beach as they rushed for shelter from a sudden downpour of rain.

Returning the next morning, the children discovered that three very unusual shipwrecked mariners had taken refuge inside the hamper – none of them bigger than Gerald’s hand. Two hundred years after Gulliver’s voyage to Lilliput, three of the little people have retraced his journey in a ship named, after Gulliver’s own, the Antelope. Willis Hall’s novel is based on the thirteen-part TV series he wrote for Granada Television.
