Product Description

Griffin has a secret in his heart that nobody else knows - until he meets Layla.

Griffin Silk is an uncommon sort of boy, from an uncommon sort of family, and when he meets Layla, a princess with a daisy-chain crown, he knows he′s found a friend. So Griffin shares his inner thoughts with Layla and together they find a way to deal with his secret.

Just like the mythical beast whose name he bears, Griffin has uncommon courage and the heart of a lion. But it will take a friend like Layla to help him find the answers to his biggest questions.

This unique and tender novel is the first book in Glenda Millard′s award-winning Kingdom of Silk series, and will touch the heart of every reader.

    Comments about The Naming of Tishkin Silk:

    This book was a gift to my 9yo niece. It encompasses some difficult topics such as grief and bullying and talks about them in a gentle way. It also is about courage.

      Comments about The Naming of Tishkin Silk:

      This story has an interesting plot, believable, likeable characters and has a realistic interpretation of the problems/complications that middle primary students might possibly relate to. It reinforces the importance of friendships and family as well as the idea that it's not a bad thing to be uncommon.
