Daedalus is an engineer in the city of Athens. He is very skilled at making new things, and everybody in Athens knows him. Everybody thinks that he is very smart, and Daedalus thinks that he is very smart, too!

But one day Daedalus kills a man and has to leave Athens. He has to go and live on the island of Crete, and he takes his son Icarus with him. Daedalus loves Icarus very much, and talks about him day and night. 4

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 4

8/15/16 8:32 AM


Daedalus and Icarus go to see the king of Crete. King Minos wears wonderful clothes and sits on a beautiful gold chair. He is happy to see Daedalus, and welcomes him to his island. “Welcome, Daedalus!” he says loudly. “Welcome to Crete! I know you are a skilled engineer, and I want you to help me.” “Of course, my king!” Daedalus answers. “Anything you ask, I am happy to do.”

5

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 5

8/15/16 8:32 AM


King Minos gets up from his gold chair, and takes Daedalus and Icarus to a door. He opens the door and there is a strange smell. “I need you to make a prison under my house. A prison that nothing can escape from. Nothing! Not a man, and not a monster.” “But why, my king? Why do you need this prison?” asks Daedalus. “Look there Daedalus.” the king says, and he points at something behind the door. “That monster is my son, the Minotaur!” 6

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 6

8/15/16 8:32 AM


Daedalus and Icarus look at the thing behind the door. It is like an animal, but like a man, too. It has big black hands, and small angry red eyes. On its head there are two huge horns. The Minotaur looks at Daedalus and opens its huge mouth. Icarus sees the creature’s big teeth and lets out a cry. The Minotaur roars at the men and Icarus runs from the door. “Do not worry, Icarus,” his father says quietly. Then he turns to the king. “I am a skilled engineer, Sir. I can make a prison for this monster. I can make you the best prison in the world.” “Thank you, Daedalus!” says the king. “Thank you!”

7

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 7

8/15/16 8:32 AM


First, Daedalus draws pictures of the prison. He wants it to be perfect – the best prison in the world. It is huge, with hundreds of walls and long passages – it is a labyrinth. Many of the king’s men help Daedalus to make the labyrinth. The work is hard, and they work day and night for months and months. At last, Daedalus is happy, and he wants King Minos to come and see his work. The king is very happy when he sees the labyrinth. It is perfect! 8

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 8

8/15/16 8:32 AM


From that day, the Minotaur lives in the labyrinth. Sometimes the people of Crete can hear it roar loudly as it walks up and down the long passages of the labyrinth. When the king is angry with a man, he sends him into the labyrinth. The man is food for the Minotaur. Sometimes the king sends animals and birds into the labyrinth. They are food for the Minotaur, too. 9

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 9

8/15/16 8:32 AM


Now Daedalus and Icarus are very happy on the island of Crete, and they do not think about their lives in Athens. All around the island is the beautiful Aegean Sea. Daedalus and his son swim in the warm water of the Aegean, or get fish for their dinner. Daedalus makes more and more new things, and the people of Crete like him very much. Every day he gets smarter and more skilled, and people start to come to him for help.

10

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 10

8/15/16 8:32 AM


One day a young woman called Ariadne comes to Daedalus and asks him for help. King Minos is angry with her friend Theseus, and is sending him into the labyrinth. Ariadne is worried about Theseus and wants Daedalus to help him. Daedalus gives Ariadne a ball of wool. “Give this to Theseus,” he says. “With this ball of wool, he can escape from the labyrinth. He can go into the labyrinth, and then use the wool to get back to the door safely.” “Oh, thank you, thank you! You are a wonderful man!” Ariadne says happily.

11

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 11

8/15/16 8:32 AM


So Theseus goes into the labyrinth with the ball of wool and he kills the Minotaur. Then he uses the wool to escape. But of course King Minos is angry because the Minotaur is his son. He is angry with Theseus and he is angry with Daedalus, too. He makes Daedalus and Icarus leave their house and he sends them into the labyrinth. “Now the labyrinth is your house!” he shouts angrily. “And Crete is an island. I am the king of Crete and I am the king of the Aegean Sea. You have no boat. Maybe you can escape from the labyrinth, but you can go no further.”

12

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 12

8/15/16 8:32 AM


So Daedalus and Icarus go into the labyrinth. Icarus is scared, but Daedalus has a ball of gold wool with him. He ties the end of the wool to the door of the labyrinth. Then he takes the ball of wool into the labyrinth with them. “We can use this wool to get back to the door safely,� he says to Icarus. They walk up and down the long passages of the labyrinth, and they come to a place where there is a strange smell. 13

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 13

8/15/16 8:32 AM


Daedalus and Icarus know it is the smell of the Minotaur. But now the smell is very bad. At last, they see the Minotaur’s body. Its red eyes are closed and it looks smaller. Its mouth is open and they can see its big teeth, but now it cannot roar. Around the Minotaur are the bones of men and animals – the Minotaur’s food. Daedalus looks around and sees the feathers from birds. He picks up a feather and looks at it carefully. He is thinking hard.

14

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 14

8/15/16 8:32 AM


Daedalus looks at his son. “King Minos is the king of Crete,” he says. “And he is the king of the Aegean Sea. But he is not the king of the sky!” “What are you thinking, Father?” Icarus asks. “We can fly, Icarus! We can fly!” says Daedalus happily. “I am a skilled engineer. I am the best engineer in the world. With these feathers I can make wings for us,” he says. “Oh, Father,” Icarus says. “You are a smart man, and I am a lucky boy. Thank you, Father!”

15

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 15

8/15/16 8:32 AM


Daedalus takes something from his pocket. It is wax. He can use the wax to put the feathers together. Icarus is happy and wants to help his father. Father and son sit down to work. Icarus gives Daedalus a feather and Daedalus uses the wax to carefully fix one feather to the next. At last, Daedalus is happy with their work. He stands up to show the wings to Icarus. The wings are wonderful. They are like the wings of a bird, but they are huge. There are two big wings for Daedalus and two smaller wings for Icarus. 16

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 16

8/18/16 9:01 AM


Now Daedalus and Icarus can use the ball of gold wool to get back to the door of the labyrinth. They carry their wings and walk up and down the long passages. When they have no light and the labyrinth is very dark, Icarus feels scared and takes his father’s hand. Together they walk on, with the ball of wool to help them. They walk for a long time and are very tired, but at last they come to the door. 17

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 17

8/18/16 9:01 AM


Icarus runs to the door of the labyrinth. “Come, Father!” he shouts happily. “Come quickly. I can see the sea!” Daedalus walks quickly to the door and out into the daylight. It is a hot day and the sun is in the sky. It is beautiful! Daedalus puts a hand to his eyes and looks at the Aegean Sea. It is a wonderful thing to see after the dark of the labyrinth. Icarus runs to him happily. 18

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 18

8/18/16 9:06 AM


Daedalus takes the small wings and fixes them on to the arms of his son. Then he takes the big wings and fixes them on to his arms. He puts his arms out straight and moves them up and down. He shows Icarus what to do. “Use your arms like the wings of a bird,” he says. Icarus moves his arms quickly up and down. He really wants to fly. “Be careful, Icarus!” says his father. And as he speaks, he moves his arms again. “Move your arms up and down slowly,” he says. “Up and down, up and down.” Now Icarus moves his arms more slowly and Daedalus is happy.

19

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 19

8/18/16 9:06 AM


Icarus wants to go, but his father speaks again. “Listen to me, Icarus. Be careful! Do not fly down near to the sea – wet wings cannot fly. And do not fly up near to the sun. The hot sun can melt the wax and make the feathers fall.” Icarus doesn’t listen to his father carefully. He wants to go. He wants to fly. He moves his arms up and down, up and down, again and again. “OK, Icarus,” says Daedalus at last, “let’s go!”

20

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 20

8/15/16 8:33 AM


Daedalus runs quickly and puts his arms out straight. He can feel the big wings on his arms. He is running fast now so he jumps high and moves the wings up and down. Icarus looks at his father and then he runs, too. He runs fast and jumps high. He moves his arms up and down and sees the wings move with him. It is hard work, but Daedalus and Icarus move slowly up into the sky. They laugh and shout, “We are flying! We are flying!” “We are birds!” Icarus sings. 21

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 21

8/15/16 8:33 AM


Daedalus and Icarus fly high up into the sky. They move their wings up and down, up and down. They see people under them and the people look up to see. The people point at them with their mouths open. Children run after them, and laugh and shout. Now the father and son come to the beautiful Aegean Sea. They start to fly across the water. Men in boats look up at them and point.

22

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 22

8/15/16 8:33 AM


Daedalus feels very happy now. Many people are looking up at him. They think he is wonderful. He feels like a king. “I am not a king, but I can make wings,” he thinks. “King Minos is the king of Crete and the king of the Aegean Sea, but I am the king of the sky! And look at my son – my Icarus. Thanks to me, he can fly, too.”

23

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 23

8/15/16 8:33 AM


Icarus is flying like a bird now. He flies up high and then comes down again. Up and down, up and down. He loves flying. It is a wonderful feeling.

Icarus flies up high and the sun is warm. He closes his eyes and feels the sun on them. It feels good. He flies higher and the sun gets hotter. He opens his eyes and looks at the sun. It feels wonderful. He wants to go nearer the sun. Up and up he flies. 24

CS1-ING-PR5-DAEDALUS AND ICARUS.indd 24

8/15/16 8:33 AM


But now Icarus is very near the sun. The wax on his wings slowly starts to melt. One by one the feathers start to fall. Icarus sees the feathers fall and shouts to Daedalus. “Father! Help me!” he cries. Daedalus looks up and sees Icarus. But he cannot help. He cannot help his son. The feathers from the small wings fall from the sky. Icarus cannot fly without the wings, and he falls from the sky, too. He falls straight down and into the Aegean Sea. Daedalus cries out. He looks at the water and it closes over his son’s head. Daedalus cries out again, but what can he do? He flies on, alone.
