“Memories don't just live inside you, Minette. They live in all the people and objects you share your life with.”

Friends, this was the literally cutest and most heartwarming book I’ve read all year. Also, the art in this book is probably my favorite art style of all time. I recommend this with my entire heart and soul.

This story is broken down into five parts; one for each season and then an epilogue. And during Spring, an apprentice blacksmith, Greta (who is getting trained by her mother),

One word: marvelous.

I can’t think of a single reason why you should not read this cute graphic novel. Actually, I can only think of reasons why you should, because it’s that adorable and wondrous.

It’s about Greta, a little girl who finds a dragon in need of help. She later discovers it’s a tea dragon and learns more about them as well as the art of making tea itself.

Dragons! They are so little and charming I want one myself. Granted, they do not play that grand of a role, seeing that

This is literally one of the best graphic novels I've ever read in my life. I can't even begin to express how much I cherished these precious characters, the sweet dragon babies, and the incredible range of representation. We have normalized QPOC rep all over the place (I mean, I'm not sure if anyone here is cishet and I'm so here for it), disability rep that is so beautifully done it made me cry, and I just loved the entire story endlessly. I know I'll be recommending this to anyone and everyon ...more

I loved this!! So gorgeous and sweet, can't wait to own my own copy :)

This is a cute Middle grade graphic novel about Tea Dragons. Tea Dragons are small counterparts to full size dragons and they can't take care of themselves. They also grow tea leaves out of their heads like Chamomile or Ginseng, etc. These leaves are special and magic.

The art is lovely and a little like anime. The story is good and simple. I wanted more development. I did enjoy this little read.

I would like to see more of this world.
Sam Quixote
A fantasy world where tea leaves grow on tiny dragons and kids pootle around. No, I don’t see a story there either!!

Just because a book is aimed at youngsters, doesn’t mean it should get away with being boring and inane. Honestly: NOTHING happens in The Tea Dragon Society! A couple kids become friends, a pair of adults relate how they met and everyone sits about drinking tea.

What was the point of this book – “love is nice”?! There’s some half-hearted piffle towards the end about sort of pickin

7/21/18 update: The Tea Dragon Society is the winner of the 2018 Eisner Award for Best Publication for kids 9-12! Yay, Katie O'Neill!

12/14/17: I admit I have not yet read Princess Princess Ever After, also from Katie O’Neill (I know! Where was I when the fairy dust was handed out?!). But I am on the bandwagon at last, following the story of blacksmith apprentice Greta in the world of tea dragons (What do you mean you don’t know what a tea dragon is?!). Well, you like tea parties, right?! And you

THAT WAS SO CUTE OMG I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

Yes, I do realise I can't just say that and leave you.

This story is mostly about taking the time to remember the old ways, remembering them and honouring them because they deserve the recognition.
It's also about letting go of the past because sometimes trying to hold on to it is hurting you, and you don't deserve the pain, you deserve new and happy memories with people who love you deeply.
It's about finding your people, feeling at home with them and not car

Reading this book made me want to have my own tea dragon! I love this book so much from the story up to how beautifully drawn the illustrations were! Even though the story is short, readers will definitely enjoy the drawings and yes, even those tea dragons!

OMG I LOVED THIS SO MUCH
My only complaint is that it wasn't long enough!
The illustrations are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen and it is a lovely story on top of that.
It is about friendship and love across ages, genders, and statuses. It deals with having responsibility and carrying on traditions. I especially loved the dragon descriptions at the end! I just want one so bad.

A copy was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

I 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 peace while reading it. It's unlike anything I've e

This graphic novel is about the importance of keeping traditions in a fast changing world.

Greta, a little girl learning the art of blacksmithing finds a little lost tea dragon, as she took him back to his owner, she discovers a new traditionnal art and a new culture and of course, she develops new friendships with wonderful people.

The illustrations were amazing, very colourful and very alive, and of course, the best one are the tea dragons (they will make you squeak !)

I adored this so, so, so much.
This book reminded me that life and the world can be filled with wonder, love, hope, and goodness. I felt so at peace reading this.
The illustrations were gorgeous and beautiful, and the story, though simple, was lovely. This was so so wholesome, gorgeous, and lovely.

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 raving about how much I wanted one as I read this.

Oh, this was the CUTEST BOOK EVER. Sometimes you just have to review with a .gif so here's one that captures how I felt while reading:



I basically didn't know what to expect from this, but after seeing some of the art from the book, I had to read it!

I love dragons. And tea. So baby dragons AND tea just...



As if the art and the dragons weren't enough, it also comes with a heartwarming story. At its core O'Neill writes about two arts that are no longer appreciated by society - blacksmithing and cari

I want a tea dragon. Can I have a tea dragon? THRY ARE MY NEW FAVORITE KIND OF DRAGON.

Hands down one of the cutest, most heart warming graphic novels I've read this year. I greatly enjoyed PRINCESS PRINCESS EVER AFTER and looked forward to this next title that involved two of my favorite things in the whole world: Dragons and Tea.

And like with PRINCESS at the core of this graphic novel is the notion that family, love and friendship comes in all sorts of ways when you least expect it. In PRIN

There is so much beauty in this book. It made me want a tea dragon of my own! I love the dragon index and care instructions on the back. A story of how kindness freely given returns a bigger kindness. I do hope there will be more Tea Dragon Society books!

Ahoy there me mateys! So along with me love of the sea, I also have a fierce love of dragons. This be graphic novel. I never read a graphic novel before as I am not a visual person and wasn’t sure if the medium would work for me. But the cute cover and subject matter kept luring me back to looking at this one. Then I read this post by milliebot @ milliebotreads. She does an awesome series where she does, in fact, judge books by their cover and showcases some of the stunning books that she owns. ...more
