If I Had A GryphonBook - 2016
Sam just got a hamster for a pet. But the hamster is kind of boring ... he just eats and sleeps and gets his shavings wet. Inspired by her book of mythological creatures, Sam longs for a more exciting pet. But she soon realizes that taking care of these magical beasts might not be as wonderful as she thought. Sasquatches are messy, unicorns are shy, hippogriffs scare the dogs at the dogpark, and having a fire extinguisher handy at all times makes dragons seem like an awful lot of work. In the end, Sam realizes that her hamster is a pretty sweet and safe pet ... or is he?
If I Had a Gryphon is a raucous rhyming read-aloud about fantastical beasts in everyday situations--and the increasingly beleaguered heroine who has to deal with them.
Baker & Taylor
A raucous rhyming read-aloud story about the perils of mythological pet ownership finds Sam, initially unimpressed by her humble pet hamster, considering an array of exciting, fantastical pets that would ultimately prove to be rather troublesome. By the author of the Clarissa series. Simultaneous eBook.

Last week I got a hamster. My first and only pet. He mostly eats and sleeps and hides and gets his shavings wet. If only I could have a pet with strange, exotic powers, I know that I'd find lots to do to while away the hours.
