A quick read featuring a boy that finds a griffin and a magic carpet who set about finding treasure. The griffin's personality was very similar to that of the phoenix and what with the magic carpet and the treasure seeking element I couldn't help thinking this author had been inspired by E. Nesbit. My daughter did enjoy this but did keep asking if we have read this before-we hadn't.
