Description


The first of Frank Stockton's original fairytales re-illustrated by Maurice Sendak.

When a griffin shows great fondness for the sculpture of himself above the great door of the church, and equal admiration for the Minor Canon, the townspeople fear that the terrifying creature will live among them forever.
