Normally, I give full reviews for graphic novels - but as this is just shy of 80 pages, I think you'll forgive me!
The artwork is both adorable and stunning - I dare you to not fall for those cute li'l tea dragons! And the colours are a pastel fairy-tale.
This book has so much diversity that it brings a warm spark to my little book nerd's heart!
We have characters of various races and skin-tones, a central F/F relationship, a side M/M relationship, a side character who uses a wheelchair, and a love interest who struggles with memory problems!
All of this is done in such a 'this is just the way it is' casual kind of way that anyone accusing it of tokenism or pandering to 'political correctness' needs to take a long hard look at themselves in the mirror.
I also like the refusal of 'traditional' gender roles here - Greta and her mother are blacksmiths, and nobody thinks this is in the slightest bit unusual. And that's awesome!
There are a couple of potentially distressing scenes here - some blood, violence, and serious injury, as well as Minette's struggles with her memory problems - but nothing overly-graphic.
The majority of kids aged 9+ will be fine with it.
This isn't a book that's just for kids though! Hell no.
While kid-friendly, this is very much an 'all-ages' title - both teens and adults will love this. Because, well, dragons! (Seriously, they're so cute!)
Guys, this is one I will recommend to anyone and everyone. Don't miss out on this - it's magical.
