Staff Reviews


If a warm hug could be turned into a book, this would be it! A short and sweet tale about miniature dragons that grow tea leaves off of their bodies and how the care-taking of these little beasts brings people together and creates unlikely friendships. Set in a whimsical world full of many magical species, the diverse cast of characters will be sure to make you feel welcome. Every page is filled with incredibly gorgeous illustrations and an adorable story that had me smiling the entire time. I’ve heard this novel described as “the perfect length to enjoy with a cup of tea” and I couldn’t agree more!

If you love dragons and light-hearted short stories, I can’t recommend this book enough.
