Children have many wishes, and some of these are especially great ones. Marietta has just the one - she wants a dog.

Her parents are not keen, especially as they have their four year old son Tobias to look after too. For years Marietta pestered her parents, but to no avail. But then, on her tenth birthday she gets a magic stone from the child the family is sponsoring in Africa. Allegedly it can fulfil a person’s greatest wish... One day, Marietta sits on her bed with the magic stone in her hand and wishes as hard for a dog as never before - she would give everything in exchange. A minute later the most amazing thing has happened: the sweetest dog in the world is sitting outside her door. Marietta is delighted and wants to show her brother the miracle, but he seems to have disappeared. After searching frantically without success Marietta suddenly discovers a mole on the dog’s stomach, just where Tobias has one. Tobias must have turned into a dog in accordance with Marietta’s greatest wish!
