This book describes the most common aspects of moving house in a simple way that young children will be able to understand. The illustrations are quite detailed and there are lots of things to look out for. The Sparks family (Mr and Mrs Spark, Sophie (5) and Sam (7)) have sold their house and are moving to a new one. The family visit the new house and watch the house being decorated ready for their arrival. They pack up all their things (which is hard work) and on moving day the helpers load everything in a lorry. Sophie is excited about her new room, and Sam is pleased that he no longer has to share with his sister. The family meet their neighbours, who are very friendly, and the children make new friends. They all fall asleep in their new house after a tiring moving day.
