Ein zauberhaftes Duo zum Verlieben Die 7-jährige Ella hat eine ganz normale Familie: chaotischer kleiner Bruder, Papa und Mama. Hm, na ja, Ellas Mama ist nicht gaaaanz so wie andere Mütter. Denn: sie ist eine wischwaschechte Fee! Und Ella - ist ihre kleine Junior-Fee. So eine Feen-Mama ist super praktisch, wenn mal morgens wieder keiner Milch besorgt hat, oder die extra pingelige Nachbarin spontan zum Tee vorbeikommt. Denn, Hokuspokus, zaubert Mami dann - eine Kuh in die Küche und fliegenden Muffinteig. Wie gut, dass Ella ihrer Mama zur Hand geht, die ist nämlich die Allerallerbeste auf der Welt und immer guter Laune - nur mit dem Zaubern, da hapert es manchmal ein bisschen.
