Nope. I'm familiar with all of Eager's books and that's not one of them. 
Don't recognize the title at all.

I do suddenly remember another children's book with a griffin in it. A fairly 
light, but not too flimsy story. Can't recall title or author though. It was 
the standard treasure hunt with magicial creature guide story, IIRC, it took 
place in Brighton and there were two children involved (boy and girl) the 
griffin was about the size of a large dog, and masqueraded as one. The 
treasure that they eventually turned up was a set of china which had been 
commissioned for the Brighton Pavilion.
