The Tea Dragon Society blurb:

From the award-winning Owlcrate 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.

Umm, sorry, I just need to talk about how absolutely freaking adorable this book is, and why I need 17 sequels for it, thanks for listening, Ms O’Neill.

The story tells us of young Greta, who happens to chance upon a tea dragon (literally a dragon that grows tea leaves from its head) and then upon returning it to its owners, Greta is invited to learn the dying art of dragon tea brewing.

OK, so let’s cover all the things I love about this book:

  • I am a tea drinking fiend. I drink hot tea all winter and summer long. I wear pins dedicated to tea drinking. Tea is my favourite drink in the world.
  • Umm, can you say dragons? I loooooooove dragons. Particularly super cute, little ones that GROW TEA LEAVES.
  • Great diversity rep (POC, LGBTQIA+ and disability). This book hits the trifecta, and should win awards on how you do things. And it feels genuine.
  • The art is absolutely gorgeous. I love the cover (I have the OwlCrate version), and I think Katie O’Neill might be my new fave graphic novelist.

Things I didn’t like:

  • It was way too short, and I don’t believe there will be a sequel.

The beauty, hope, love and respect in this book shown between the characters is one of the more gorgeous things I have seen in a while. I genuinely hope that everyone gets to read this because it is seriously heart-warming. I have a lot of love for this story.

Until next time, happy reading 😊📚
