Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a boom and a burst of fireworks, Mary Poppins returns, falling from the sky like a shooting star. She arrives not a moment too late: The Banks home is in complete shambles — five wild children without a nanny are five children too many!

But Mary Poppins swiftly takes the Banks children in hand, and along with her squawking parrot-headed umbrella, they set off on a new round of marvelous adventures. A visit to Mr. Twigley's music box-filled attic, an encounter with the Marble Boy, a ride on Miss Calico's enchanted candy canes — all of this and more are just part of a typical day out when the world's most beloved nanny is in charge.
