    A retelling of a classic tale from Greek mythology, for young children beginning to read for themselves. The tragic tale of Icarus, son of Daedalus, who was imprisoned by King Minos in Crete. His father built wings of wax and feathers for their escape but Icarus flew too close to the Sun and fell to his death when the wax melted. A new title in Young Reading Series, part of the Usborne Reading Programme aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories. Developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is Principal Lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University in the UK.
