Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mary Poppins is like no other nanny the four Banks children have ever seen. She whirls into their home and “spit-spot,” she works her inimitable brand of magic to make even the bland seem extraordinary. An endless source of fascinating adventure, she slides up the banister, produces an array of tricks from her seemingly empty carpetbag, and ensures the Banks lives will never be the same.

“When Mary Poppins is about, her young charges can never tell where the real world merges into make-believe. Neither can the reader-and this is one of the hallmarks of good fantasy.” - The New York Times

“Delightful nonsense that defies an age boundary of appreciation.” — Booklist
