9780064404501: The Queen's Nose

Harmony Parker thought animals were much nicer than people and saw everyone as some non-human species. Her father, for example, was a bald-headed Sea Lion and her mother a tubby, fussy Pouter Pigeon. But Harmony's parents wouldn't let her have pets of any kind--then Uncle Ginger from India arrived and gave Harmony a very special present.

About the Author:

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. Many of his stories are inspired by his farming experiences. Later he taught at a village primary school. His first book, The Fox Busters, was published in 1978. 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 Hodgeheg, 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 OBE for services to children's literature. Dick King-Smith died in 2011 at the age of eighty-eight.
