Plot[edit]

The book by Dick King Smith features the story of Harmony Parker, a 10-year-old girl who wants an animal of her own but is not allowed by her parents, who think animals are dirty. Harmony has a 15-year-old sister, Melody, who spends most of her time looking in a mirror. Harmony's best friend is a toy dog, Rex Ruff Monty.

Harmony believes animals are more interesting than humans and so the people she meets, she pictures as animals. Her father is a sea lion, her mother is a Pouter pigeon and her sister is a Siamese cat.

She receives a magic coin from her uncle, Ginger, that grants her seven wishes.
