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.

About the Author


Frank R. Stockton (1834-1902) published his first book, Ting-a-Ling, a collection of fairy tales, in 1870. From 1873 to 1881, he was assistant editor of St. Nicholas magazine, working with Mary Mapes Dodge. His writing career flourished in the last two decades of the nineteenth century, when he produced story collections, novels, and works of history for young readers, as well as nonfiction and fiction for adults, notably his story The Lady or the Tiger?
