About The Dragon Who Lost His Spark

A picture book for children themed around emotional intelligence with fun characters and rich language to portray a message of confidence.

“Believe in yourself, like I believe in you,
Confidence comes from the inside, it’s true.”
And with those words, Sparky felt himself lift,
His attitude and energy was starting to shift.

Sparky the dragon has lost his way. He sets out on an adventure where he meets some unexpected friends who help him to regain his confidence, optimism and his overall spark.

This is a journey of self-discovery, where Sparky realises that all these wonderful qualities were already inside him; he just needed some life experience and some guidance from his friends to help bring them to the surface.

About the Author

Megan Holden is a full-time, stay-at-home mum to three toddlers, owner and founder of a children’s toy and bookstore, a former primary school teacher and a children’s book author. She attended Canterbury University in 2007 and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Science, majoring in Psychology, where she held a particular interest in child behaviour and development. She then went on to study Primary Teaching and completed her Diploma in 2012.

Megan taught a range of ages from 2012 to 2020. In late 2020, she had her first son and left the classroom to become a stay-at-home mum. Megan has always had a passion for children, their learning, education and their development. After a year of being a mother, she decided to turn this passion into a business, where she could help other families provide educational and engaging activities and toys to their children. She started a Montessori-inspired toy and bookstore called The Treasure Trove.

In 2023, Megan’s passion for education, enjoyment of reading, and love for language inspired her to write her first children’s book, The Dragon Who Lost His Spark. This book is themed around emotional intelligence and includes rhyme, fun characters and rich language to portray a message of confidence.
