Description

A BBC radio full-cast dramatisation of Dick King-Smith's enchanting children's story about Harmony Parker and her magical 50p coin.

Harmony Parker is ten years old and loves animals. She longs for a pet of her very own, but her parents won't allow it. All she can do is keep hoping, dreaming and wishing.

Then Uncle Ginger comes to visit from India. He and Harmony become friends, and he gives her a very special present. Not a puppy, but something even better: a magical 50 pence piece with the power to grant seven wishes. All she has to do is rub the point of the coin opposite the Queen's nose.

Harmony starts wishing right away, and is soon the proud owner of some of the things she wants most in the world. But she discovers that you have to be careful what you wish for, as the Queen's nose doesn't always grant wishes in quite the way you might expect...

This fantastic tale from the bestselling author of Babe, The Sheep-Pig starsLauren Mote as Harmony and Rupert Graves as Uncle Ginger.

About Dick King-Smith

Dick King-Smith served in the Grenadier Guards during the Second World War, and afterwards spent twenty years as a farmer in Gloucestershire, the county of his birth.

He wrote a great number of children's books, including The Sheep-Pig (winner of the Guardian Award and filmed as Babe), Harry's Mad, Noah's Brother, The Queen's Nose, Martin's Mice, Ace, The Cuckoo Child and Harriet's Hare (winner of the Children's Book Award in 1995). At the British Book Awards in 1991 he was voted Children's Author of the Year. In 2009 he was made an OBE for services to children's literature.
