I am happy to announce that friend of the blog, author David Biedrzycki, has a new book release- Me and My Dragon: Scared of Halloween.
In this follow-up to Me and My Dragon, a boy runs into an unexpected problem when preparing to go trick-or-treating for Halloween: his pet dragon is scared silly of this spooky holiday! Zombies, werewolves, mummies . . . they all make Dragon run and hide. How will the boy convince Dragon that these things aren’t real, and what costume will the duo come up with for this unconventional pet?
In honor of this new release, I thought it would be fun to meet Sparky the Dragon. I asked the author to give us a little more info on his lovable, goofy, dragon.
Full Character name: Sparky and the boy’s name is Hameer
Brief physical description:
Sparky is an American Red Fire Breathing Dragon (Draconem Americanus Respiratio Ignis Rubeus)

It’s recommended not to feed the fire breathing specie broccoli, it will cause them to pass highly flammable gas.
Inspiration for your story:
Growing up I was lucky to have four dogs. They were my buddies. We did a lot of fun things together. The Me and My Dragon series shares those fond memories of having a pet who is your best friend.
Background for the story:
Originally what started out as a story about a boy and his dog turned into a story about a boy and his pet dragon. The character is that of a dog trapped in a dragon’s body.
