"A lovely, gentle fantasy." –– KIRKUS

Revisit the enchanting world of Tea Dragons with an all-new companion story to the two-time Eisner Award-winning graphic novel The Tea Dragon Society!

Rinn has grown up with the Tea Dragons that inhabit their village, but stumbling across a real dragon turns out to be a different matter entirely! Aedhan is a young dragon who was appointed to protect the village but fell asleep in the forest eighty years ago. With the aid of Rinn’s adventuring uncle Erik and his partner Hesekiel, they investigate the mystery of his enchanted sleep, but Rinn’s real challenge is to help Aedhan come to terms with feeling that he cannot get back the time he has lost.

Critically-acclaimed graphic novelist Katie O'Neill delivers another charming, gentle fantasy story about finding your purpose, and the community that helps you along the way.

"Gentle, inclusive, and heartwarming, The Tea Dragon Festival will bewitch existing fans and new readers alike." - Jen Wang (The Prince and the Dressmaker)

It was absolutely amazing to see so much diversity wrapped up in such a cute little package. It was well worth the read and I've fallen in love with the Tea Dragons. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from Oni Press through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.*

The illustrations are beautiful just like the last book. I really enjoy the sweetness of all the characters and how they all work together and all genuinely want to help each other. I did find the storyline to be overly simplistic and it lacked tension leaving it flat. Everything worked out too easy without much effort from the characters. There was some great character development in the main character as she figures out that her job is needed and appreciated. However, it was it only after the dragon told her he appreciates what she does. I would have like this development more if it was after her actions helped others and not just the opinion of a person. There are clear descriptions of homosexual relationships and gender fluidity. This reads like an adult trying to write a children's book.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher I was able to read this book in exchange for an honest review. *** Tea Dragon Festival by Katie O’Neill is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel that is set before her Tea Dragon Society. You’ve seen the ridiculously adorable tea dragons from Katie O’Neill’s previous book but this time be prepared to meet an actual dragon (as well as more tea dragons because I’ll never get enough of those little guys)! Rinn stumbles across Aedhan, a dragon sent to guard her village many years ago whose was put into an enchanted sleep. While Rinn’s Uncle Erik and his partner Hesekiel (if you read Tea Dragon Society yes, yes it’s them. It’s a younger version of them and I was so ridiculously happy to see them again) search to find the mystery behind the slumber Rinn accompanies Aedhan as he finds his place in the village. O’Neill’s works are soft, sweet, beautifully inclusive, and just plain beautiful. The Tea Dragon Festival is a visual delight and a sweet story about finding yourself, being true to yourself, and what makes a home.

The Tea Dragon Festival is a beautiful, sweet story that is wonderfully illustrated and, for me, had a very calming influence. I'm sorry I missed the first book - The Tea Dragon Society! I need to read that too!

This was the perfect sequel, or should I say prequel, to The Tea Dragon Society. I loved learning more about Erik's family, his and Hesekiel's past, and more new characters! Rinn and Aedhan were so cute, and they learned so much from each other. I can't wait to see if more comes from this series! And I'm very excited for September!

Rinn has always cared for the Tea Dragons that live in her quaint little mountain village. One day, while out gathering bits of food, she stumbles upon a real dragon who had been asleep for 80 years. Aedhan had been tasked with protecting Rinn's village and can't seem to remember how or why he fell asleep for so long. With the help of Rinn's uncle Erik and his partner Hesekiel, the group set out to get to the bottom of the enchanted sleep, but Rinn must also help Aedhan come to terms with all the time he's lost. I adored The Tea Dragon Society, so I was so excited to read this one, and it made me just as happy as the first. Katie O'Neill's artwork and storytelling is so whimsical and never fails to put a smile on my face. There's just something about her work that instantly makes you feel cozy. It's an absolutely adorable story, and I don't feel like you necessarily need to read the first one to understand what's going on. What I also love about these it that after the story, which reads so quickly, there's little tidbits on each Tea Dragon and it just adds that extra element to the story. I dare anyone to read this and not fall in love and wish they had their own Tea Dragon.
