About the Story:

Icarus Swinebuckle - Winner of the Parent's Choice Award, this picture book is transformed into an animated tale. An 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 goosefeather 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.

This App combines both still and moving images. illustrations taken directly from the book fill the screen of the iPad and animation brings it to life. It also includes the revolutionary Atomic Reader Touch N' Read system assisting those learning to read. Every word of the book is clearly recorded and pronounced as a separate recording for easy touch playback.

What's New in Version 1.2.1.
