Graphic Novel Review of The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O'Neill

Read for: Requested Review/ Netgalley

Synopsis: "From the award-winning author of Princess Princess Ever After comes The Tea Dragon Society, a charming all-ages book that follows the story of Greta, a blacksmith apprentice, and the people she meets as she becomes entwined in the enchanting world of tea dragons.

After discovering a lost tea dragon in the marketplace, Greta learns about the dying art form of tea dragon care-taking from the kind tea shop owners, Hesekiel and Erik. As she befriends them and their shy ward, Minette, Greta sees how the craft enriches their lives—and eventually her own."

My Review: This book originally came to my attention when I was watching Super Space Chick on youtube with her Bookcon haul. I was immediately attracted to it because of the title and the cover, it sounded like something right up my alley. This was a very cute graphic novel, I don't know if it will be a standalone or a series (I really hope it is a series). It is a unique fantasy world with some different traditions and history, while not 100% clear was still filled out enough to enjoy the current storyline. The illustration in this book is stunning, I loved the cute style and no-line coloring that softens the edges and gives it a more mystical appearance. The characters and story are so perfect for me, I loved them all and I so want a tea dragon now!!

My Rating: This had such a unique idea and and characters, I am so glad I had the opportunity to read it and I really hope that it leads to all kinds of fan art and more books.  I can't help but give this a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!

I received Tea Dragon Society via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I love the idea behind this one. I want a tea dragon!!!

    1. I know right?! They are so cute and grow tea!

  2. Oh my goodness! This looks and sounds like such a cute graphic novel! I'm glad someone out there likes graphic novels too because none of my other bookish friends like them.

    1. Not many of mine do either, and the ones that do only read specific super hero story lines.
