    The Tea Dragon Society is an absolutely stunning graphic novel and now I really want my own tea dragon!The illustrations in this graphic novel are incredibly beautiful. Everything is so colorful and the artist really gave life to these characters. There are several different species in this story and all of them were absolutely stunning. The best illustrations are definitely the tea dragons, which are so adorable I was squealing in delight and ra...

    A copy was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI was so glad to see this on the Read Now section because I'd seen it around on Good reads and it looked perfect for me. I was not wrong.This short graphic novel is magical, soothing and beautiful. I loved the diversity of the characters in terms of skin color, disabilities and sexual orientations. Everything was so subtle yet wonderful; I felt immediately at p...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I really enjoyed the sweetness of The Tea Dragon Society. Greta and Minette's friendship is very believable, and I loved how Greta gave Minette time to get used to her. Greta never forces her way in, and doesn't get offended when Minette is shy when they first meet. Although, this comic is fairly short it does a good job of showing the passage of time, and giving ...

    This book is beautifully illustrated and written. I really enjoyed Princess Princess Ever After so had high hopes for this book, and I wasn't disappointed. The story is sweet and heartwarming like a good cup of tea. The dragons are adorable, as are all the other characters. I loved the story, but there was a little section at the end with information about caring for tea dragons which was super cute too.[Free ARC from Net Galley]

    I love tea. The Tea Dragon Society is just wow! How creative! How different! O'Neill surely has done a magnificent job, since the comic is cute, wonderful and made of cupcakes and happiness with a tint of sadness in it. Greta is learning to become a blacksmith like her mom and at the market place she finds this odd creature that is bullied and saves it. It's a tea dragon and the owner wishes Greta to learn the art of tea making and along the way ...

    This is a charming all-ages book written and illustrated by Katie O'Neill. I was completely drawn in from the cover onward. This lovely little book is so calm and charming and kind that I felt soothed and entertained and enriched after finishing it.It defies genre, really, though if I had to classify it, I would call it fantasy realism. There are a lot of heavy duty themes like family loyalty, truth, love and friendship through adversity. It was ...

    I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book was adorable! The art style is so cute, which is the main reason I picked up the book in the first place. Additionally, the story is amazing. Like, I cried a little reading this. We are introduced to a little girl named Greta who is learning to be a blacksmith from her mother. It isba dying trade, because no one really uses swords and stuff anym...

    I really love the style of the illustrations in The Tea Dragon Society. The outlines are almost invisible and the colouring is quite flat with few shadows. This gives the images a beautiful soft quality and fits perfectly with the sweet, soothing story.The story is really lovely, as Greta and Minette learn more about the dragons and what they want from their future. The idea of the tea dragons themselves is very cute and original. Tea leaves grow...

    I'm not sure how to review this one. It's quiet and sweet and freaking adorable-can I have a ginger and a rooibos dragon?But I'm not sure how many kids are going to be into tea enough to get the in jokes, nor sure how many will appreciate the pure craft of it. But I think the sheer sweetness of illustrations will tempt plenty for a peek and hopefully hook them. (The blurb mentions how to train your dragon and pokemon fans, not so sure about that,...

    Oh how I just loved this book. I would love to have all these little tea dragons! As a person who loves fantasy and loves tea just as much, this book was one that made me smile all the way through it. A coming of age story that follows Greta & her new friends and how they find themselves and their purpose in life. I hope there will be more. I can just imagine the adventures they could go on and so many more tea dragons. I will be watching out. I ...

    Adorable, original, and beautiful. The story, art, and concept of this sweet graphic novel pull together to form a perfect little book. Needless to say, I am dying to own my own Tea Dragon (plushies, anyone??? Pleeeease?). I cannot wait for the release of this book so I can own the final edition. I was lucky enough to obtain an ARC at BookCon.This book is ideal for kids and teens, as well as any diehard fans of graphic novels!

    Very cute with beautiful illustrations! The story is interesting, an entertaining fantasy tale featuring diverse characters and adorable dragons. The friendship, and maybe even something more, between the girs is nicely developed for the amount of pages, as well. The graphic novel leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy.Really liked the last section with all the details about the different kinds of dragons, adds a very nice touch. A really lovely r...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis book was just absolutely gorgeous. It has the same feel as Princess Princess Ever After, but you can definitely see an improvement in both the art and the story. There still isn't a whole lot of depth to the story, but I think it would be perfect to read with very young children. I love the diverse characters, and the tea dragons themselves are just absolutely...

    I got an ARC of this at ALA this summer, and it's AMAZING. I really like O'Neill's art and storytelling from other things I've seen, and this was just a perfectly sweet story about family, friends, and dragons. The art is lovely, with beautiful colors and ADORABLE DRAGONS. You should definitely read it, and I'm planning to buy it as soon as the finished book is available.

    My boss got an ARC from ALA Annual. It has the most ADORABLE artwork ever. I want a Tea Dragon soooooo bad. The characters are wonderful, there's tons of everyday diversity (a wheelchair user and it's not a big he's in a wheel chair), and it's charming and perfect and wonderful, and I wish there was about a hundred more pages of it.

    I was so excited to read this ARC! The artwork is stunning, the plot is very cute, and it's overall just what I like. It has elements with wide appeal for many age levels. I recommend it for anyone who likes sweet, adorable, feel-good stories.

    This book was so cute! It follows Greta, a blacksmith apprentice, after finding a lost tea dragon in the marketplace. She befriends its owners Hesekiel and Erik, and their ward Minette, who teach her about the art of tea dragon care. Charming, beautiful artwork and perfect for any age.
