Sparky is that cheeky pup we all would like to own. Bouncy, loveable and un-magic, well at least until he is accidentally whisked away to a magic boarding school.
And then the adventures really begin. Sparky is based at Mrs Mothwick’s Magic Academy and he is not proving very adept at learning magic, but to make matters worse, the Grand Council of Wizardry and Witchiness are coming to inspect the school. And if Sparky can’t learn magic, the school could close.
But then a mysterious witch appears and offers Sparky and Carl the solution to all their troubles.
