The Flight of Icarus retold by Sally Benson
Storyboard by Samuel Olaoye
King Minos had threw Daedalus and his son Icarus into a tower on a lonely island after Theseus escaped the Labyrinth. Daedalus had tried bribing many ships to give him and his son a ride but he always failed because King Minos had ordered his solders to do thorough searches on each boat. Daedalus the ingenious thinker that he was did not give up. Daedalus said, "King Minos may control the sea and air but hes does not control the air. I will try that way."
Icarus and Daedalus picked up all the feathers they could get. Then Daedalus got to work.
Daedalus uses hot wax and thread to start and finish the wings.
When the wings are finally finished, Daedalus warns Icarus to not go to high because the sun will burn of the wax and not to low because the water will clog the wings. After Daedalus tells Icarus this they begin their journey.
Icarus flew to high and the sun melted of his wax. He plummeted from the sky. Daedalus was unable to save him. Daedalus dragged Icarus out the sea and brought him to an island. Daedalus named the nearest island there Icaria and built a temple for Apollo.
