The illustrations in this book are done in a Greek style which enhances the story. My kids loved this book and it written in such a way that they could understand it easily. This is a great introduction to the story of Icarus.

We've found several references to Icarus in other stories and in some art we've studied and the kids have still remembered it and been able to recount the story in detail.

Excellent addition to your studies of ancient Greece.

British children's author Penelope Farmer was born in 1939, in Westerham, Kent, the daughter of Hugh Robert MacDonald and Penelope Boothby Farmer. She published her first book, The China People, in 1960, going on to use one of the longer stories originally intended for that collection as the basis of her first novel, The Summer Birds, which received a Carnegie commendation.
