Inspired by the mythological tale of Icarus that was written by Henri Matisse and in the metamorphosis of Ovid, Chiara Lossani narrates one of the well-known episodes of the Greek mythology. In the first part of the book, the author sticks with the classic myth to present Daedalus, an incredible machine builder and architect of the Cretan Labyrinth, where the king Minos locks him up with his son Icarus, as a punishment for helping Theseus escape. The solitude of this prison brings them closer and makes them dream of freedom. This isolation reveals to the greatest inventor of the world that he hasnt imagined a game for his son and nor has he had time to take care of him. Now he knows that Icarus is the only one that he needs to take care of and decides to build wings to scape, but the result of this invention is not what he expected, the same happened with the labyrinth that he built, destiny is full of traps, curves and nips and crannies without an exit . A story that talks about wits, love, obsession and sensitivity, where the illustrations of Gabriel Pachecho follows the poetic tone of the text and where details like the minotaurus of Crete, the face of Daedalus or the flight of the father and son are such a monumental part as the feelings they portray.
"Una maravilla en texto e ilustraciones "
