Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By P.L. Travers, the author featured in the movie Saving Mr. Banks.
 
From the moment Mary Poppins arrives at Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane, everyday life at the Banks house is forever changed.

It all starts when Mary Poppins is blown by the east wind onto the doorstep of the Banks house. She becomes a most unusual nanny to Jane, Michael, and the twins. Who else but Mary Poppins can slide up banisters, pull an entire armchair out of an empty carpetbag, and make a dose of medicine taste like delicious lime-juice cordial? A day with Mary Poppins is a day of magic and make-believe come to life!

 

Synopsis:

An extraordinary English nanny blows in on the East Wind with her parrot-headed umbrella and magic carpetbag and introduces her charges, Jane and Michael, to some delightful people and experiences.

Synopsis:

This classic tale tells the story of the world's most beloved nanny, who brings enchantment and excitement with her everywhere she goes.

Synopsis:

Life was never the same again for the Banks family after the astonishing Mary Poppins blew in with the east wind. This revised edition introduces some delightful new characters. “Delightful nonsense that defies an age boundary of appreciation.”--Booklist

For those of you only familiar with the movie version of Mary Poppins, you're in for a treat. The literary Mary is more human than the movie version, but just as captivating. The adventures she had in the movie are just the tip of the iceberg.
