Synopsis

Mini Myths Be Careful, Icarus! by Joan Holub

Where not heeding Dad's warning results in trouble After Icarus and his dad make a bird-shaped kite, Dad warns Icarus to hold on to the string and not to let it fly too high. But Icarus disobeys and soon, the kite gets caught in the trees. Icarus learns to be more careful and exercise his self-control. Joan Holub's carefully crafted text is brought to life by Leslie Patricelli's famously humorous illustrations. Includes a summary of the original Icarus myth at the end. This book joins Be Patient, Pandora!, Play Nice, Hercules!, Brush Your Hair, Medusa!, Make a Wish, Midas! and Please Share, Aphrodite! in the Mini Myths series of mythologically-inspired modern-day parables in board book form, each featuring a read-aloud summary of the Greek myth at the very end.
