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.
Read information about the authorFrank Richard Stockton was an American writer and humorist, best known today for a series of innovative children's fairy tales that were widely popular during the last decades of the 19th century. Stockton avoided the didactic moralizing common to children's stories of the time, instead using clever humor to poke at greed, violence, abuse of power and other human foibles, describing his fantastic characters' adventures in a charming, matter-of-fact way.
