Tiffany’s Griffon

First Second. Aug. 2024. 288p. $22.99. ISBN 9781250757814.
Gr 6-8–Fantasy becomes reality when preteen Marnie is gifted a griffon egg. However, the egg is really meant for someone else—The Chosen One, who it turns out is actually a girl named Tiffany. Marnie is a dedicated reader while Tiffany is a sports-loving social butterfly, but the two girls form an unlikely friendship. Readers will delight in the adventure as Marnie’s favorite story “Griffon Riders” goes from fiction to fact, but their friendship is tested when Tiffany discovers the truth that Marnie was never The Chosen One. At its core, this quest-filled story is about friendship and integrity. Fans of The Witch’s Throne by Cedric Caballes and Magical Boy by The Kao will find lots to love in Gonzalez and Porter Siddell’s graphic novel.
VERDICT A good addition to any middle grade graphic novel collection.
