Sparky Smart from Priory Park
Meet Sparky and the Smarts â€“ an ordinary family who frequently find themselves in extraordinary situations!
Shipwrecked at the library: Sparky suddenly remembers her books are due back to the library â€“ today. She drags Stanley along to the library with her at the last minute, only for them to end up in a worse situationâ€¦ shipwrecked!
Zoo hullabaloo: Auntie Bella's taking Sparky, Nat and Archie for a fun-filled day out at the zoo. Once there, she decides to let them go off and explore on their own. What could possibly go wrong?
Escape of the mouse-creature: Stanley's been acting very strangely recently. What's the matter with him? He's in love! Now, Sparky wants to help Stanley have a happy ending, and her method is a mouse in the house.
'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
