”You feel like you’ve lost your path. It’s natural to be sad… it’s alright to let those feelings wash over you, and give them time to soak into the earth. That’s when things start to grow again.”

This entire series is just so special to me, and this newest installment is probably my favorite thing by Katie O’Neill to date. The Tea Dragon Tapestry t

It's common knowledge amongst my friends, family, and many people who watch my videos that I'm more than a little in love with the Tea Dragon series. Katie O'Neill's art style is my absolute favorite of all time. I love the dreamy, cozy atmosphere and the soothing color palette. I love the wholesome characters and, most of all, the tea dragons.

I sincerely hope this series has at least ninety-one books because I need them all so desperately my heart aches. I loved this. It is so true and beautiful, heartfelt and kind. This one also felt sadder than the others and dealt with themes of change and loss, but in such a gentle and uplifting way. I felt it in my soul when the characters talked about losing motivation and passion for things that made them. How do you be you, when you have changed? It's a huge topic and yet this graphic novel c ...more

As always, Katie O'Neill's art is absolutely unmatched. It is so cute and atmospheric and I would hang every single panel up in my house if I could. That being said, the plot of this one didn't do a ton for me? It definitely wasn't bad in the slightest, but it just wasn't especially memorable. ...more

As always, this was incredibly sweet and lovely and soft. I love the tea dragons so much and this cast of characters is delightful and wonderfully diverse. I have to admit that this was my least favorite in the series by a small margin, maybe because I felt like it held so little world-building and development — and the fact that it seemed to involve much less dialogue than the previous installments. That said, it's still a really precious read and a satisfying conclusion to an incredibly lovabl ...more

my review for The Tea Dragon Festival (Book 2)

...remember, that you are already whole.

This was truly perfect.

For one, the art has gotten even better if that’s possible. The colour work truly enhances every scene and Katie O’Neill knows how to create moods and atmospheres so beautifully. Every colour is so rich and every panel truly draws you into the story. I’d love nothing more but to jump into this world and be a part of it.

This book was such a quick and fun read for me I read this one in one sitting! Love Katie's books and fall in love with each one of them. Hopefully there's more in this series but I'm not sure if there will be?
5/5 STARS!!!(:
Oh, my heart. It’s still tender because it swelled up by three sizes while reading this adorable and beautifully illustrated comic. Queer found family, mischievous tea dragons, being a supportive caretaker and friend for someone grappling with grief... my heart’s swelling again. The art is truly lovely, and I wish I could share some panels that made my jaw drop in awe. I need to hunt down the first two installments of this series.

I am grateful to NetGalley, Oni Press, and Katie O’Neill for the opportunity to read this book, the third in the Tea Dragon series, which I review thankfully, without prejudice.

The Tea Dragon Society was the winner of the 2018 Eisner Award for Best Publication for kids 9-12! Yay, Katie O'Neill! It was followed by The Tea Dragon Festival.

I was sent this book as an advance copy by the publisher via NetGalley for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own.

This was just as lovely and wholesome as the previous ones 💕

While it dealt with heavier topics than the last two books, it did so in a very uplifting (and not patronizing) way. This whole series is the perfect example of something written for kids that is also perfect for all adults but especially queer ones who didn't get to read this type of story with a queer found fa

"The Tea Dragon Tapestry" was such a wonderful installment in this series. The first book "The Tea Dragon Society" blew me away with beautiful art, loveable characters, and a great story. This graphic novel was no exception and I am so glad that I got approved for this ARC as it is one of my most anticipated reads for the year. Overall I would highly recommend starting this series!

It was so good to be back with these characters in this final chapter of this lovely graphic novel series. I loved how both Minette and Greta had their own storyline and things to solve and I'm happy with the conclusion this series has got. Also, tea dragons are still the cutest creatures ever!
Katie O'Neill never disappoints when it comes to drawings, they're breathtaking and the colours she uses
Tea Dragon is such a beautiful series, following charming characters and these wonderful Tea Dragon creatures. Katie O'Neill's art is my favorite, it's aesthetically pleasing, soft, and colorful. I have enjoyed all the installments and I'm sad to see this story end.

The Tea Dragon Tapestry reunites old and new characters: Greta, Minette, Rinn and Aedhan, it was great to see everyone once again. This one may be my favorite for its tender and thoughtful exploration of grief, care and love.

Thank you so much Netgalley and Oni Press for the review copy!

This book was amazing! Just as amazing as the first one! I loved Min and Greta and all the tea dragons so much. My heart broke every time I saw Ginseng being sad, which means that I grew so attached to the characters. This story is beautiful and magical, and I loved every bit of it. The artwork is absolutely fantastic!

Thank you Netgalley and Oni Press for the ARC.

A lovely conclusion to a very wholesome series. It was as cute as diverse and as beautiful as the others. I feel the story wasn't as interesting, so it lacked on that part and it felt a bit less intriguing, but I'd still say it's a decent conclusion. Definitely would like to reread it as finished product because the format of the arc didn't give it justice. It was very hard to read it with having just the art and then the dialogue wasn't as clear as

I started off with The Tea Dragon Festival, part 2 of the adorable Tea Dragon series last year. Here, I review The Tea Dragon Tapestry, the final book in the series. You can start anywhere and still enjoy them. How can you not adore a book about little tea dragons that grow tea leaves on themselves?

This book focuses on Greta, a blacksmith-in-training, who has been taking care of the little tea dragon, Ginseng, for a year. Her friend Minette works in Hesekiel’s store. Erik now stays with Hesekiel

The final instalment of Tea Dragon series brings the whole story to a beautiful end. It takes place one year after The Tea Dragon Society and many years after The Tea Dragon Festival . We get to see Greta, Minette, Erik, Hesekiel, Rinn, and Aedhan again. I totally recommend reading the previous books first for full enjoyment as I am unsure if this book would make sense as a standalone.

The Tea Dragon Tapestry is a lovely book by Katie O'Neill.

They say don't judge a book by it's cover, but I totally did! The cover is absolutely stunning and drew all of my attention in when I saw it. Of course, then I read the description and found out more about the book, but that cover is attention grabbing! I love it! Bright oranges, reds and pinks all make for a really nice colour scheme. I also adore the cute, little dragons inside at the beginning of the book. So adorable!

I can't be completely sure but, in my educated opinion, there is literally nothing in this world that cannot be made better by reading a Katie O'Neill book.
Pandemic getting you down? Read an O'Neill book and watch your mood do a one-eighty.
Bad skin? Clears right up the second you see a tea dragon.
Depression? We don't know her, we only know adorable squeals and wholesomeness.

I'm going to miss this series! It's the most comforting, gentle read. There are so many charming details, like including a tiny tea dragon curled up on the copyright page, or a vine design wherever there's extra space. There is a lot of diversity in the characters, including differing skin colors, characters with disabilities, and queer characters. I love to just stop and stare at each page, taking the artwork in.

This is a "Bookstagram made me do it" book. I didn't know it was a series, so I haven't read the first two. Even if I did understand the story shown in this one, I found the graphics so adorable that I want to read everything Katie O'Neill has ever written.

This book is touching story about how everyone copes differently with grief, sadness, and growth.

And those tea dragons are SO CUTE!!!!

The Tea Dragon series is one of the cutest I have ever read! From the stories, the morals and the gorgeous illustration style, I absolutely adore them! The Tea Dragon Tapestry is an incredible story of growth, grief and love. My only fault is that I wish it was longer!
