Sparky Smart from Priory Park
Meet Sparky and the Smarts â€“ an ordinary family who frequently find themselves in extraordinary situations!
The Smart family emergency committee: The idea of Mrs Smart joining a choir seemed like a good one at first. Now, Mrs Smart's made a new friend and wants to copy everything she does. How will Sparky and the rest of the family react?
Barbara's big day: Sparky's grandad has been asked to lead the church float in the town carnival â€“ riding his beloved moped called Barbara! The preparations are underway â€“ until disaster strikes. Who's stolen Barbara?
Grandad jelly legs: Miss Clatworthy is putting on a play and Sparky's managed to land the role of props assistant. But when things go wrong, Sparky has to step up and use her quick-thinking brain to save the day!
'If your family doesn't quite get things right all the time, then reading about the Smarts will be like looking in a mirror. These fun, adventurous tales are packed with humour and wisdom, entertaining and enlightening children in equal measure. A heap of fun, nice big characters, and a healthy reminder that God's helping us through the crazy capers that life throws at us. Be Smart: these stories belong on your children's bookcase - or better still, off it!' â€“ Paul Kerensa, author, TV comedy writer and performer
