King Alfred and the Cakes
Icarus and Daedalus
The Chest of Broken Glass

When Annie's mother presents her with a new bicycle to deliver cakes, she promises to take care of it. Instead, she wrecks it - along with a cakes - after impulsively accepting the challenge of a race. Plato points out the consequences of irresponsibility in "Icarus and Daedalus" (Greek); the significance of even "small" promises in "King Alfred and the Cakes" (English); and the shame of letting down a loved one in "The Chest of roken Glass" (English).
