Summary

Harmony Parker thought animals much nicer than people, and saw everyone she knew as some non-human species. Her father, for example, was most definitely a bald-headed Sea Lion, her mother a tubby, fussy Pouter Pigeon, and her tiresome older sister a Siamese cat.

But Harmony's parents would not allow her to have real pets of any kind – not even a harmless gerbil. Then Uncle Ginger arrived from India and gave Harmony a very special present ...

What do you do about racist language?

In the early pages the term 'bud bud' racist inference to India was jsed, surely it should be deleted from the book?

Other than that this is a childhood favourite and beautifully read.

A winner!

Would you listen to The Queen's Nose again? Why?

I have listened to it multiple times since I got it! The story is delightful, and the narration is terrific!

Any additional comments?

I adore this story! The story-line itself is wonderful, and the narration entertaining (it's in an English accent). It's a good buy for anyone who enjoys listening with kids (or anyone like me who still feels very much like a kid). :)
