Product Description

Review

“Like all great children’s classics Mary Poppins is frightening and sad as well as magic and very funny.”
The Observer

“Absolutely alive, and aglint with magic.”
Walter de la Mare

Product Description

A classic original Mary Poppins novel.

On snailed the curious figure, its feet neatly clearing the tops of the trees. They could see the face now, and the well-known features – coal-black hair, bright blue eyes and nose turned upwards like the nose of a Dutch doll.

The figure drifted down between the Lime Trees and alighted primly upon the grass. “Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins!” they cried, and flung themselves upon her…

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun! 14 Jun 2004
Format:Hardcover
This charming book is actually a compilation of two different books: Mary Poppins (written in 1934), and Mary Poppins Comes Back (written in 1935). In the first story, young Jane and Michael Banks (along with their baby siblings John and Barbara) are a terror to every nanny, until Mary Poppins takes on the task. Resolute and no-nonsense, she sets out to straighten the children out. However, everywhere they go, peculiar things happen around her. But after each episode, she returns to her upright self, and denies that anything untoward happened. What's going on here? In the second story, Mary Poppins returns to the family for more exciting and very peculiar happenings.
These stories are a lot of fun. It is obvious that the 1964 Disney movie was based on the first book, but a great deal of liberty with the story. These stories are must more surreal, with no obvious lesson being imparted. Instead, it is just a romping good time with Mary Poppins, her Uncle Albert and Cousin Arthur, Bert (a minor character in the book), Mr. Banks' quite formidable nanny, and a host of other believable and unbelievable characters! My children and I highly recommend this book to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars great 27 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These stories are brilliant! I just wish my children were still young enough to have bed time stories, each chapter can be used individually, so you will not feel you are reading forever. Comparing them to the Disney film is interesting, the stories are in the books but you do get some surprises & they don't necessarily happen in the same order.
