'If I Had a Gryphon' by Vikki Vansickle and Cale Atkinson
"If I Had a Gryphon" shows us that the grass isn't always greener and taking care of any pet has its share of responsibility.
In this enchanting picture book we meet a little girl who is less than thrilled with her first pet: a hamster. She begins imagining what it would be like to have a much more interesting pet like a unicorn, a Phoenix, a gryphon, and more. Inevitably, the mystical creatures prove to not be a good fit for her life and in the end she realizes that her cuddly little hamster is the perfect pet for her.
Written by Vikki Vansickle and illustrated by Cale Atkinson, this book will surely be a fun addition to your imaginative child's bookshelf!
