Ikarus Jackson is a boy with Wings. For this he is teased by children and adults alike. One girl, feeling isolated herself, is fascinated by Ikarus' beauty. Transformed by an appreciation for his individuality, she finds her voice and inner resiliency to speak up for her new friend. Christopher Myers has written a touching book about the unique spirit in each child. Look closely at the images and you will find his colorful collage style masterfully and magically depicts the topsy-turvy urban landscape and emotional complexity of its children.
A beautiful book.
