Review: A Griffin in Her Desk is a magical excursion from the classroom into the realm of mythical monsters, Greek gods and fabulous treasures. Congratulations to James Clifford and Zee Ann Poerio for conjuring up an engaging children's story based on Greek mythology and ancient coins. I hope that more volumes in this ancient coin series will be forthcoming. --Virginia Barrett, National Committee for Latin & Greek

Your book is a delight. It's a really fresh and creative way to introduce kids to classics through ancient coins. This is an exciting approach to bringing numismatics and classics to life for children in elementary school. --Scott Rottinghaus, MD, Classics Major Governor, American Numismatics Association

Mrs. Moneta is the teacher we all dream of having! She makes the classics, ancient history, Greek mythology, and reading fun and educational, with her own magical twist. You and your child will love this book, and find yourselves wanting to learn and read more about the world that is introduced to us by Mrs. Moneta. --Kerry K. Wetterstrom, Editor/Publisher - The Celator

I loved reading "A Griffin In Her Desk." What a fun story and truly wonderful way to bring ancient history, mythology, and numismatics to life! I especially enjoyed the emphasis on language and your efforts to include a manageable amount of new Latin vocabulary that was effectively scattered (and repeated) throughout the story.

I think you have succeeded in making ancient history and numismatics fun and exciting to a younger audience. I can only say that I am already looking forward to what future adventures will come with Mrs. Moneta and her class! --Elizabeth Hahn, Librarian, American Numismatic Society

A Griffin in Her Desk is a great way to introduce children to ancient coins and an easy to read story. It holds your interest to the end. --Richard Gaetano, Retired History Teacher Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists, Charter Member

The Mrs. Moneta series opens new vistas for today's young students and leads them to the Classics in a gentle but exciting way. It's what we have needed for far too long. --Wayne Sayles, Numismatist Executive Director, Ancient Coin Collectors Guild
