From the Inside Flap:

For Kate, life back home in Minnesota is a not-so distant memory. Her father’s work has brought the family overseas to a countryside estate in Tuscany. Kate spends much of her time with her younger brother, nine-year-old Michael, roaming around the beautiful estate grounds, filled with moss-covered statues, cypress trees, and olive groves. But when Kate and Michael find a lost baby griffin, a strange, mythological creature with colorful downy feathers and tufts of fur, they enter into a magical adventure - one that is marked by danger, fear, and a sinister, beckoning presence named Prince Eduardo. The two try to keep Grifonino safe and his existence a secret but real-life threats from greedy paparazzi and eager scientists threaten the creature’s safety. Now, with the help of their older brother Stephen, the three siblings set out to find out the truth of where the magical creature has come from...and how to get him back there once and for all.|For Kate, life back home in Minnesota is a not-so-distant memory.
