Lulu desperately wants a real dog. So you can imagine her frustration and anger when her parents hand her Harry, a stuffed dog! She doesn't realize, however, that stuffed animals have feelings, too, and Harry is no exception. He explains to her that he is a real dog--and that he's from France! Lulu is skeptical until he takes her there. Before Lulu knows it, she's having a ball.
