A Blossom of Hope in Debut Graphic Novel Coming Summer 2021
In a charming, delightfully warm style reminiscent of the award-winning Tea Dragon Society series, Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group has announced the upcoming debut graphic novel, The Sprite and the Gardener, by Rii Abrego and Joe Whitt with lettering by Crank!. The Sprite and the Gardener will be released on May 5, 2021.
Long, long ago, sprites were the caretakers of gardens. Every flower was grown by their hand. But when humans appeared and began growing their own gardens, the sprites’ magical talents soon became a thing of the past. When Wisteria, an ambitious, kind-hearted sprite, starts to ask questions about the way things used to be, she begins to unearth her long-lost talent of gardening. But her newly honed skills might not be the welcome surprise she intends them to be.
Join the neighborhood of sprites in this beautiful, gentle fantasy where, in taking the first step toward something new, both gardens and friendships begin to blossom.
