Series: Young Reading Series 1
By Katie Daynes
Things don’t look good for Icarus and his dad. They’re imprisoned in a tower inside a maze on a rocky island. Can a daring idea fly them both to freedom? This colourfully illustrated adaptation of the classic story from Ancient Greece has been specially written for young readers who have just started to read alone.
Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.
