Read full description of the books The Griffin and the Minor Canon:

This is a story book written in 1885 and then illustrated by Maurice Sendak in 1964. Frank R. Stockton is best known for writing the short story, "The Lady and The Tiger." There are overtones of that tale is this fable/fairy tale. The art by Sendak fulfills his desire to not illustrate in pictures what Stockton illustrated in words. Nicely done. Plus the relationship between the Griffin and it's statue and the minor canon and the people of his quiet town is worthwhile. The griffin 'likes' the minor canon more than the canon will ever know! The bad children learn to learn due to the influence of what they believe about the Griffin. The story, with lots of guidance, is appropriate for 4-5 year olds and appropriate for adults of all ages. A Clever tale with effective, classic art as emphasis.
