Lambur Productions has signed a deal to option the TV rights to internationally bestselling author and Ministry of Stories patron Sophie Kinsella’s Mummy Fairy and Me (published as Fairy Mom and Me in the US). Lambur Productions will work with Kinsella, her agents Lucas Alexander Whitley and UK based Executive Producer Helen McAleer to develop the book for a series of live-action television movies.

Mummy Fairy and Me

Mummy Fairy and Me tells the story of Ella and her family’s special secret – that her Mummy is a fairy! Ella’s Mummy comes from a long line of fairies and can perform fantastical spells to make delicious cupcakes, create the perfect birthday party and cause chaos at the supermarket. However, unlike the other fairies in her family who win awards for their magic, Mummy’s spells almost always go hilariously wrong – and that’s when Ella has to come to the rescue. A modern day take on fairies and family, Mummy Fairy and Me will take audiences on a sweet and funny journey full of magic and mayhem.

Sophie Kinsella said, “I am absolutely delighted that the team at Lambur Productions have taken Mummy Fairy and Me to their hearts. I think the magic, comedy and family dynamics of the stories will translate brilliantly to the screen and I can’t wait to see Ella, her mother and the spells come to life!”

Sophie Kinsella is a globally bestselling author including most recently for the New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller My Not So Perfect Life (published February 2017). Her other books for adults have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 40 languages. They include the globally successful Shopaholic series and other titles such as Can You Keep a Secret?, The Undomestic Goddess and Finding Audrey for young adults. Sophie’s new adult novel, Surprise Me, publishes February 2018. Mummy Fairy and Me is her first work for young children.
