If I had a Gryphon

If I Had A Gryphon is Vikki VanSickle’s first picture book, and was shortlisted for the Blue Spruce Award, among others. The story grew out of an idea she had observing storytime at The Flying Dragon Bookshop, where she worked after attending UBC. She now works and writes in Toronto, Ontario.

If I had a gryphon,

I’d love each flashing feather.


But she needs flying EVERY day,

Regardless of the weather.
