2 in stock

Moving house can be fraught with difficulties, and it’s no different for the Smart family in Horrible house-hunting. From dealing with snooty estate agents to house-viewing disasters, Sparky and her family discover that there really is no place like home.

Holidays are great, but getting there can be easier said than done. In Smarts on holiday, our favourite family from Priory Park is once again beset by delays and near-disasters as they endeavour to get away for a much-anticipated break.

One of Sparky’s favourite things about Grandad Bagg is the twinkle in his eye. But lately, it’s just not there. So Sparky sets out to take Grandad on a brand new adventure and get that twinkle back! A motorbike shop, a 71-year-old and and 8-year-old… what could possibly go wrong? Find out in The purring wombat…

'I love it when Sparky gets stuck in the room; the noisy neighbour and the floodlights. I like it when the Smarts don’t go on holiday. It reminds me of Dave’s holidiary. And I absolutely loved it when mum thought Grandad Bagg was moving out and getting married because of his moped! Please could you write another one!? 'Cate aged 11

'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!' – Paul Kerensa, author, TV comedy writer and performer
