Perfect for fans of Studio Ghibli and The Tea Dragon Society, this is a magically heartwarming graphic novel about self-acceptance and friendship.

Growing up as a young witch, Sophie knows her family expects her to attend the best magic school. She is sent to train with relatives she’s never met, but instead of learning spells, she has to do chores.

When a frustrated Sophie tries to do magic on her own, she accidentally entangles her magic with that of a water dragon named Lir, stranding him on land without his memories. Lir is powerful, and Sophie could harness his magic to ace her entrance exam—even if it means working against Lir’s attempts to return to his home. In this solo debut from award-nominated artist Wendy Xu, young witch Sophie must decide—what kind of person does she want to be?
