"Only two basketball teams stand between Joe Talbot's team and the playoffs! One teams players are a little shorter than average, while the other team's members are a little taller. Wishbone sees that Joe might be about to learn a valuable lesson in judging people by their size. This situation causes Wishbone to imagine himself as Lemuel Gulliver, a seventeenth-century ship's surgeon from Jonathan Swift's classic adventure tale, GULLIVER'S TRAVELS. Two different shipwrecks leave Wishbone in two strange lands. In one place, everyone is only a few inches tall! The other land is populated by giants! It will take a hero who is larger than life to make his way through this mixed-up adventure."--BOOK COVER.
