Duchess' books bound for the big screen?

29th September 2009

The Duchess of York is reportedly on the verge of securing a major film deal, which will see her children's books adapted for a cinema release.

According to the Daily Mail, Sarah Ferguson has penned an agreement with an unnamed US publishing company granting it film rights to her works, which is expected to net the former royal millions of pounds.

Speaking to the paper, she said: 'I cannot tell you how exciting that is for me. America has been so good to me.

'I failed in Britain and when I gave it a go in America I was ready to fail there, too - but they have really embraced me.'

Five of the six books at the heart of the deal tell the story of Little Red and are aimed at children aged between four and eight. They include Little Red's Christmas Story and Little Red's Summer Adventure.

Another book, called Tea For Ruby, follows an accident-prone redhead who is invited to tea with the Queen.

In the late 80s and early 90s, the author released a range of children's books featuring the helicopter Budgie, including Budgie at Bendick's Point, The Adventures of Budgie and Budgie Goes to Sea.
