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.
This Graphic Novel is just so cute and lighthearted. I love the artwork and tonne. The art style is so colourful and flowery and makes for a pleasant reading experience compared to other Graphic Novels that just feel busy and chaotic. I really like that the characters in the story are drawn as either slightly human looking animals or humans with animal features like horns and such. Makes it interesting and easy to follow who and who.
While not a tonne happens in the actual plot itself it does build an image of this world and gives us a base to expand on. It sets the seen nicely and I already love these characters and tiny dragons and want good things to happen to them!
I especially love the representation in this book! We have a character that uses a wheel chair, a character with amnesia, a woman of colour and a male/male romance so far and this graphic novel is only 72 pages! Thats a good amount of rep for such a short book. All the rep was also handled really well which I love to see. Everyone is just accepting of everything which is refreshing to have these different representations simply seen as normal and not something to question.
Overall this is such a sweet & magical read and I highly recommend giving it a go! I am super keen to get to The Tea Dragon Festival (which I have already purchased).
