In The Griffin's Riddle, when Ben and Pearl discover that Dr. Woo and the sasquatch are both sick with Troll Tonsillitis, the two must travel to the Imaginary World in search of the only cure -- a griffin's feather. But can they convince the King of Creatures to surrender one? And at what cost?Suzanne Selfors delivers a wild journey filled with mythical creatures and zany adventures that are anything but imaginary.This book includes bonus writing, art, and science activities that will help readers discover more about the mythological creatures featured in The Griffin's Riddle.
