Not all heroes are humans. Sometimes they come in the form of two cats in a robotic dog suit. In Sparks!, Charlie and August team up to pilot their dog suit to save the day across town. Everything is going to plan until one day a new villain shows up to conquer the world. Don’t be fooled—just because this alien looks like a onesie-wearing baby and is named Princess doesn’t mean that they are to be trifled with. Will August and Charlie be able to save the day before the aliens take over? •
