Dick’s enchanting story The Queen’s Nose, a tale about Harmony Parker and her magical 50 pence piece, has been adapted into a BBC radio full-cast dramatisation, which is now available to own!
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 Harmony 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…
The production stars Lauren Mote as Harmony and Rupert Graves as Uncle Ginger.
