What Readers Are Saying:
Forgiveness and love is important.
"The Griffin of Greed was an excellent book. The moral of the story, is to be kind to everyone. Do not become the Griffin of Greed, full of angry feelings. Become what the king became, full of forgiveness and love.
The pictures were wonderful. Thank you for writing this book. I enjoyed reading it."
This children's fairy tale teaches the importance of community cooperation and forgiveness as paramount to a fulfilled life, instead of collecting "stuff". This story will have children becoming more inclined to share their toys with friends and siblings, alike.
** Fun Fact: This is one of the stories that Thomas writes back to Gillian in "A Tryst of Fate".
