Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Greatest Stories: Oxford Level 8: Icarus by Susan Gates, Ovid

Children can dream of what it is like to fly in this reworking of Ovid's classic myth, told through the eyes of servant girl Amara. When Daedalus the inventor and his son Icarus are imprisoned by King Minos, escape looks impossible. But with his ingenious talent Daedalus manages to construct wings, enabling the pair to take on the form of birds. Tragedy strikes when Icarus fails to listen to his father's instructions, and the invention that should be his saviour proves to be the opposite. TreeTops Greatest Stories offers children some of the worlds best-loved tales in a collection of timeless classics. Top children's authors and talented illustrators work together to bring to life our literary heritage for a new generation, engaging and delighting children. The books are carefully levelled, making it easy to match every child to the right book. Each book contains inside cover notes to help children explore the content, supporting their reading development. Teaching notes on Oxford Owl offer cross-curricular links and activities to support guided reading, writing, speaking and listening.
