In another solar system, there exists a planet known as Gulliver, where life is easy, there are no wars, and everyone is happy—except Pearl Grainger. On a world ruled by twenty foot alien apes, the restless Pearl is a member of the lesser class “breeds,” genetically engineered to be the same size and shape as regular humans. She longs to be fully human, and craves wild adventure. Engaged to pureblood alien Cedric Long, she keeps stalling their marriage with one excuse after another. Cedric loves Pearl with all his heart, but can’t get past her prejudices. Stealing a space ship, Pearl flies to Earth, where she hopes to pass as human. Crashing near Dover, England, she finds the world taken over by jungle, and inhabited by ruthless barbarians who think her a witch. Forced to fight for survival, Pearl learns to use her alien instincts to stay alive. Her only hope of getting back home is for Cedric to come searching for her. But will the Beast locate his Beauty on this savage planet? There has never been a heroine like Pearl Grainger, or a hero like Cedric Long. And there’s never been a science-fiction adventure like Gulliver’s Children!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
