Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the moment Mary Poppins arrives at Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane, everyday life at the Banks house is forever changed. This classic series tells the story of the world's most beloved nanny, who brings enchantment and excitement with her everywhere she goes. Featuring the charming original cover art by Mary Shepard, these new editions are sure to delight readers of all ages.

Only the incomparable Mary Poppins can lead the Banks children on one marvelous adventure after another. Together they meet the Goosegirl and the Swineherd, argue with talking cats on a distant planet, make the acquaintance of the folks who live under dandelions, and celebrate a birthday by dancing with their own shadows. And thats just for starters!

I enjoyed the first "Mary Poppins" more than the last. Written some 20 years after "Mary Poppins", "Mary Poppins in the Park" contains 6 long chapters, most which seem to consist of Mary telling the four children extra-length stories, all of which contain sublimely written morality (which can be refreshing in children's literature), but are sorely lacking in the magic of Ms. Poppins herself. I would rather read about Mary and the children going out and having an adventure than read about Mary telling the kids about strange happenings and unusual characters. Of course, some of those Mary Poppins magic adventures remain, and the last chapter of the book, about Halloween (the only day of the year that our shadows can detach and go off for a party in the park) is a very fun read. That chapter alone is worth at least a check-out from the library and a good read-aloud to the kids.
