Gerald is a griffin--a creature with the body of a lion and the head of an eagle. According to the Code of the Griffins, that means he should be:1. Brave and fierce in all situations.2. A guardian of a great treasure.3. Completely and totally hidden from the human realm.But what if a Griffin ISN'T brave or fierce? What if he's NEVER found a great treasure (or ANY treasure for that matter?) What if he's such an embarrassment, that the only thing left to do is run away? And worst of all...what if he's spotted by a HUMAN BOY?Told in diary entries, letters, newspaper clippings, and excerpts from ancient codes, bursting with death defying flights, secret histories, unsolved mysteries, great treasure, true friendship, epic adventure, disingenuous gnomes, endangered bunnies, and more!
