-WINNER OF THE PARENT'S CHOICE AWARD -  NY TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR MICHAEL GARLAND ***INTERACTIVE VERSION*** iPAD ONLY See youtube promo...  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HuKRCZTDKQAn endearing retelling of the Greek myth, New York Times Best Selling Author Michael Garland casts a bespectacled pig as the hero/dreamer Icarus, whose "greatest wish was to fly." A cobbler by trade, Icarus ignores his customers' shoes and works instead on crafting a pair of goose feather wings held together by wax. His wife wrings her cloven hoofs, the landlord (fittingly a wolf) is at the door demanding the rent, and the only one who believes in this portly Icarus' seemingly impossible dream is his small son Robin. The dream miraculously bears fruit, with predictable results when the triumphant porker flies too high. Undaunted, this space-age pig vows next to build a more durable flying ship, and who's to say he won't.
