Children’s books by the Duchess to be made into movies

America loves the Duchess of York—and her children’s books. The Little Red series for four to eight year olds has been bought by an unnamed U.S. film company that is expected to turn the tales into Hollywood blockbusters. Her latest book for children under four, Tea for Ruby, will also be made into a movie. British film companies previously refused to buy Sarah Ferguson’s collection of stories. “When I gave it a go in America I was ready to fail there, too,” she said, “But they have really embraced me.” Time will tell if movie-goers will too.
