Julie Andrews is a busy lady. First she announced she'd be writing another memoir; now a picture book series she co-writes is being adapted into an animated TV series for preschoolers. Tell little miss Fancy Nancy she better WATCH HER BACK.

Deadline reports that The Very Fairy Princess and its sequels, about a girl who's pretty sure she's a fairy princess, have been optioned by Nelvana Enterprises. Andrews, who writes them with her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton, said:

"The books are all about celebrating individuality.... We hope to encourage kids to rejoice in their own unique passions and talents ‚ÄĒ even if they're different from that of their family or friends, and Nelvana is the perfect partner to bring our beloved Very Fairy Princess to a wider audience."

And yet STILL no movie adaptation of Mandy. Where's our movie adaptation of Mandy, Dame Julie Andrews????
