In 1727 when Jonathan Swift wrote Gullivers Travels he intended it to be nothing more than a sharp and biting commentary on the customs and politics of his time but knowing the most dangerous truths could be told safely only under the mask of humor he veiled his attacks with the most imaginative of stories. And as a result his book did not die with the customs and men, which it ridiculed instead with the passage of two centuries, and more it has become more than just a brilliant satire. It has become in fact one of the greatest of all childrens classics, a story to charm and delight the young of every generation and every century.

On the south westerly tip of England, deep in the wild moors of Devon lies the little village of Stone Cross. Invalided Mrs. Wentworth is one of the few residents of this lonely place.

He is not really a doctor, he is a masseur and is in the living room of the cottage now, giving Mrs. Wentworth one of her treatments.
