    I was looking for the Icarus story to read to my 5 year old, who had seen the story on "Between the Lions" on PBS. The story in this book only has a passing mention of Icarus. It might be a good set of short stories for children, but don't buy it if you are looking for Greek mythology. The characters also speak using poor English. This might be OK for older kids, but I don't want my 5 year old learning from it.

    I think this book is simply great for older children and even young teenagers. It deals with the kinds of values you'd want your child to learn--empathy, compassion, tolerance, integrity--without being in the least bit preachy. The stories are set in the Caribbean and they are fascinating--varied, colorful,the kinds of situations with which children anywhere can identify. The characters are so vividly drawn and often so hilarious,they seem to step off the page into real life--and the language is wonderfully lyrical. My 12-yearold son loves the whole collection, but his favorites are 'Slater Minnifie and the Beat Boy Machine' about a school bully who gets stopped in his tracks by a fat boy; 'Dread Mildred', a funny but sad and moving story about an over-strict aunt told by her niece who dislikes her intensely. This book is exceptional--I haven't read anything so refreshing and so beautifully written in a long time--and the best thing about it is, it's a book that both children and adults will love!
