About this title:

Synopsis: Icarus is full of joy when he realizes his father has constructed wings from feathers to aid their escape from their tower prison. But they must take care not to fly too close to the sun. . . . Yolen and Nolan bring the wisdom and beauty of this ancient Greek story to modern readers.

Review: As important as it is to aim high, ancient mythology reminds us that we must never confuse ourselves with the gods. Only disaster can come of showing too much skill at godly pursuits like creating-- or flying. But poor old Daedalus just can't get past his aspirations to fly. Jane Yolen's version of the story of Daedalus and his son, Icarus, is lyric and foreboding, and Dennis Nolan's shadowy renderings of the omnipresent deities are a particularly haunting accompaniment to this ancient tale of pride and tragedy. (Ages 6 to10)
