Tea Dragon Universe Continues to Expand
The gorgeous graphic novel The Tea Dragon Society introduced creatures that readers were bound to want to know more about. Katie O’Neill’s world-building is excellent, and her beautiful pastels and lineless style established a world with a timeless feeling. O’Neill’s story of acceptance and caring and magical creatures now will have a companion book.
The Tea Dragon Festival is due out September 2019. O’Neill’s Here’s the book description.
Rinn has grown up with the Tea Dragons that inhabit their village, but stumbling across a real dragon turns out to be a different matter entirely! Aedhan is a young dragon who was appointed to protect the village but fell asleep in the forest eighty years ago. With the aid of Rinn’s adventuring uncle Erik and his partner Hesekiel, they investigate the mystery of his enchanted sleep, but Rinn’s real challenge is to help Aedhan come to terms with feeling that he cannot get back the time he has lost.
Said Katie O’Neill, “This companion story touches a lot on matters of identity and purpose, and is as dear to me as the first book was. I hope readers will enjoy meeting new characters, as well as learning something new about familiar ones. And of course, learning a lot more about Tea Dragons!”
