From the Publisher
Annotation Ikarus Jackson, the new boy at school, is different--he has wings. All the other kids make fun of him except for a shy girl who admires his uniqueness. Even when Ikarus tries to fit in by playing basketball with the other kids, he is shunned. As Ikarus flies away the shy girl finds the courage to speak up--telling the others to stop taunting her new friend, and telling Ikarus that she thinks his flying is beautiful. Colorful collage illustrations accompany the poetic text. Named a year 2000 Notable Book by the New York Times and a 2001 Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book for Outstanding Writing in a Picture Book.
Editors Note Are you brave enough to be your true self? Ikarus Jackson is. But it isn't always easy. The people in his neighborhood point at his wings. The kids at school laugh. The teachers call him a distraction. One girl identifies with him, but she is too shy to speak up for herself, let alone for Ikarus. Maybe I should have said something to those mean kids, she thinks, when their taunts send him drifting into the sky. Inspired by Ikarus's own courage, she sets out in search of him and so begins her own journey of self-discovery--leaving both of them transformed.
