A new board book format for this best-selling pet book with a mythological twist! A fun and funny read-aloud about the perils of mythological pet ownership, and an ode to the humble hamster.
Sam just got a hamster for a pet. She’s not really impressed. The hamster isn’t very exciting—he mostly eats and sleeps and gets his shavings wet. BORING! After reading a book about mythological creatures, Sam gets some ideas for more exciting pets. But she soon realizes that taking care of these magical beasts might not be as wonderful as she thought. Unicorns are shy, gryphons scare the dogs at the dog park and having a fire extinguisher handy at all times makes dragons seem like an awful lot of work. Maybe the hamster really is the best pet for her. A nice, safe pet…right?
If I Had a Gryphon is a raucous rhyming read-aloud about fantastical beasts in everyday situations—and the increasingly beleaguered heroine who has to deal with them.
