With the body of a lion
and an eagle, Griffins have a dual nature. They are known
as Guardians of Treasure. The main character in Hatched
is Gerald Overflight, a 10 hatchday Griffin. Gerald’s
diary is his account of his adventures in the Enchanted Realm
and the human world. In the human world, he teams up with
a boy name Bradley Ashango. Bradley also shares his diary.
It all begins with Gerald worrying about his tenth hatchday.
He has to acquire a True Treasure to be declared a True Griffin.
Gerald doesn’t believe he can find a true treasure,
and he doesn’t want to disappoint his dad again, so
he runs away to the human world. Gerald’s teacher, Master
Abelard, directs Gerald to the Wall of Passage and the human
world. Once there, Gerald learns as much about himself as
he does humans, gnomes, and dragons. Will Gerald stay in the
human world or return home with a treasure big enough to make
his Dad proud?
