About This Book:
SynopsisIkarus Jackson, the new boy at school, is different--he has wings. All the other kids make fun of him except for a shy girl who admires his uniqueness. Even when Ikarus tries to fit in by playing basketball with the other kids, he is shunned. As Ikarus flies away the shy girl finds the courage to speak up--telling the others to stop taunting her new friend, and telling Ikarus that she thinks his flying is beautiful. Colorful collage illustrations accompany the poetic text. Named a year 2000 Notable Book by the New York Times and a 2001 Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book for Outstanding Writing in a Picture Book.
Industry ReviewsMyers' collages and his story, like the best parables, are startling, yet simple. A strong contender for children's book awards this year.
