Gulliver's Travels Part 2, Chapter 5 Summary
"Several adventures that happened to the author. The execution of a criminal. The author shows his skills in navigation."
- Gulliver's life in Brobdingnag is pretty happy except that his tiny size makes him so vulnerable to danger.
- When Gulliver is walking under an apple tree, the Queen's dwarf shakes the tree, causing about 12 apples to drop. These apples almost brain Gulliver.
- Gulliver is sitting on a plot of grass when a sudden hail shower nearly crushes him to death with balls of ice about 1,800 times the size of European hail.
- The worst danger of all comes when Glumdalclitch leaves Gulliver in the palace gardens while she is talking to her governess. A small white dog gets loose in the garden and carries Gulliver (fortunately, very carefully) to the feet of her master, the head gardener. The gardener returns Gulliver to Glumdalclitch.
