Dewdrop by Katie O'Neill


by Katie O’Neill.

From the author of The Tea Dragon Society comes Dewdrop, the delightful children’s tale of an adorable axolotl who cheers on his underwater friends as they each bring their talents to the pond’s sports fair! 

Dewdrop is an easygoing, gentle axolotl who enjoys naps, worm pie, and cheerleading. When the yearly sports fair nears, he and his friends—Mia the weightlifting turtle, Newman the musical newt, and three minnows who love to cook—get ready to showcase their skills to the whole pond! However, as the day of the fair gets closer, Dewdrop’s friends can’t help putting pressure on themselves to be the best. It’s up to Dewdrop to remind them how to be mindful, go at their own pace, and find joy in their own achievements.

My Thoughts

So cute!

Dewdrop is an adorable picture book from Katie O’Neill that lets young readers know that you can only please yourself. Coupled with a cute art style, Dewdrop communicates its sweet message in an easy to understand and entertaining story.

Returning again with her distinct art style, O’Neill wows readers with a beautifully panelled and paced story that will have you falling in love with the cute axolotl, Dewdrop. Far simpler than her previous work, Dewdrop is a short and sweet picture book

In this book, O’Neill tackles harder to understand concepts in a friendly manner, presenting readers with characters who are stressing too much, placing too much pressure on themselves, or experiencing self doubt. Dewdrop the carefree axolotl cheers the characters on, letting them know that through self confidence, trusting yourself, and going at your own pace, you can achieve your goals.

I mean, look at the cute panel below. How could you not fall in love with Dewdrop, or O’Neill’s art style?!


I will always recommend Katie O’Neill because her work is not only cute and endearing but it has a beautifully subtle way of sharing its message.
