On your marks it's bright sparks. - Volume 1.

Australia, 1988

‘Take Your Medicine’: Poor Alex has a cold and medical science can’t cure it but it can save a life and help people live happier lives. Sparky shows Amy and Alex exactly how. ‘My House’: Alex has built himself a house, well it’s supposed to be a house but Amy doesn’t think it is. So Sparky takes them on a discovery tour of houses around the world, above ground, underground and even underwater.
