From the award-winning author of Princess Princess Ever After comes THE TEA DRAGON SOCIETY, the beloved and 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. BONUS CONTENT: Included in this gorgeous, oversized hardcover is "Extracts from the Tea Dragons Handbook", explaining more about the creatures with illustrations of all the dragon breeds not seen in the graphic novel.

This book is absolutely gorgeous. I got a special edition cover that I love. I am not a huge fan of the white, but I think the picture encompasses the story much better. The best part about this book is the artwork and the creatures. They are adorable and I want them all to be real so bad! Katie O’Neill is both the author and the artist, and her artwork is incredible ❤ I want to read her other Graphic Novels just so that I can see more of her art. The story itself was cute but I felt it was underdeveloped and too short. I know its a graphic novel but it felt more like a Children’s picture book. I didn’t learn till after I read it, that Katie O’Neill writes “gentle fantasy stories for younger readers.” This explains a lot, but I feel the story still have had more depth and still be geared toward younger readers. For example, the fire cat thing that is a constant companion to the main character. We learn that she bonded with him when she was six and his name. I need more information than that!!! I love this little cat thing and I want to know what it is! Despite the shortness of the story, I would still recommend this book purely for the art. Its a easy fun read and I am so glad I own my own copy because I love it!
