Bookish bday presents to go with my yarn-y ones!
Apparently, I need all the cozy fantasy books right now, because I will drop everything else to read them. This sweet story is full of diverse representation, with cute pint-size dragons that grow tea on their head. Need I say more? Classified as middle-grade but definitely for all ages.
Note: originally published under a different first name, the author changed their name to Kay about a year ago, but early editions will have their other name.
I felt for characters, they had touching backstories and it was nice to see how they had went through those difficulties.
Beautiful book and there were some awesome landscapes to look at. This was somehow really peacuful and cute.

I absolutely loved this graphic novel trilogy! All are available on kindle unlimited & I recommend reading them back to back. They are hard to put down!
Expect found family, LGBTQ & disability rep, magic, and heart felt messages good for all ages. Book 1 & 2 read as independent stories with Book 3 tying them together. Bonus excerpts for tea dragon lore at the end of each book are a must read!
I may or may not have audibly squeed! It whisked me away on a fluffy pastel cloud. The aesthetic art style & cottagecore vibe was like sipping a calming cup of tea as you watch the autumn leaves float to the ground at golden hour. Complex characters with varying skin tones, LGBTQ+/disability/mental health rep & of course ridiculously cute dragons! It‘s about the value of friendship, the deep bond of pet & owner, & the foundation of love.
This was adorable and so, so sweet. Seems like a great way to get kids into graphic novels. The artwork and color pallette are spectacular, and I dig the focus on relationships, stewardship, and keeping cultures, traditions, and creatures alive. This felt very queer to me, too? Maybe I'm projecting, but I felt those vibes. I need to get my hands on the second book as soon as possible and am impatiently awaiting the third one's publication. 🍵🐉
I have wanted to check this graphic novel out for a while, so this morning I borrowed it on Hoopla though the library and gave it a read. 📚
The art is great. I have read Katie O'Neill before, but not in a long time. I like how she sets a good example for young readers and her books usually have good representation. I am glad I gave this a read. I think it would make a good gift for a younger reader and I wouldn't mind owning my own copy!
I have often come across this one on Litsy, and am very much looking foward to the cute drawings😍
This was a cute book that could be shared with middle grade students and older. A young girl is introduced to the art of creating for little tea dragons. It was a choice from my TBR and I'll be reading others. The art was pretty with a bit of a hazy, dream-like feel to it.
15 + 1 + 100 points for 1 hour/10 RATs

Every week, I highlight #LGBTQAuthors as part of #TheRainbowShelf 🏳️🌈 Kay O'Neill creates dreamy, whimsical illustrations and writes warm graphic novels that readers (especially little'uns) can enjoy. Their interest in tea, critters, and the magic of everyday life shines through in their beautiful works. Last week, they shared a post on Instagram announcing their pronouns and name, so you may notice their work listed as Katie O'Neill for a bit.
This darling and soul-affirming little graphic novel is full of diverse and lovable characters—including but not limited to the titular adorable tiny dragons who grow tea from their horns (!!!)—as well as wisdom about friendship, patience, care, and the keeping of cultural memory, and it is the perfect length to read over a mug of tea made with attentive, loving hands.
This was so precious and put such a smile on my face. In a world filled with people and creatures, a young blacksmith apprentice find a little dragon in the marketplace and saves them. She then bring them back to their own and discovers the magical world of tea dragons and the caregivers who look after them. Filled with many wholesome moments and a bunch of smiles, this little book is a great read for anyone and super quick.
⚠ CUTENESS ALERT ⚠
This was a total cuteness overdose. The story the art and everything in this book!
I fell head over heels for the little tea dragons.
I'm very disappointed that I have to wait 16 days for the next volume to make its appearance.
This is really magical !
This was recommended to me by a librarian, and I loved it. It is simple and sweet. The artwork is so cute too. Plus - DRAGONS! 🐉
This was one of the sweetest, most delightful graphic novels I have read in a long time.
I would like a tea dragon more than anything but I have a sneaking suspicion that my dog is one (the complete lack of survival instinct was the clincher.)
The only problem was it was too short.
I completely loved this charming comic and highly recommend it. If you love whimsical slice-of-life, tea, small creatures, beautiful philosophy about memory and experience, and gorgeous/adorable art, you need to read this treasure. Especially perfect for any mini readers you have in your life. #whimsical #comic #fantasy #tea #dragon
Lovely illustrations, diverse characters and a cute story about miniature dragons that grow tea leaves from their heads and the people that care for them. A short read, more or less vignettes for each season. Touches on themes of memories.. both lost ones and the weight of keeping memories alive.
Reread in preparation for the second instalment and it was just as beautiful as I remembered it! I want a tea dragon!!!
