1.   Wings
Written and Illustrated by
Christopher Myers
Wings is the retelling of a myth that highlights the beauty and perils of being different. Ikarus Jackson is very different: he has wings and he can fly. But at school, his wings attract too much attention, and kids think he is 'showing off.' One girl realizes he must be lonely being the only one who has wings, and resolves to step in and stop the name-calling and teasing towards Ikarus.
[Grade Level: K - 3]
