I enjoyed finding out about P L Travers. If you want to know more about the author of the Mary Poppins books it's worth the time reading it.

Having read this account of Pamela Travers, and also having seen the film "Saving Mr Banks", it really puts a different light on the film " Mary Poppins", in fact makes it more enjoyable, and understandable, knowing how and why the characters were created.
This little biography is truly well written, and is extremely enjoyable.
I would recommend it in every way, then download and enjoy the full "Mary Poppins"collection, as I did.
Believe me,there is an awful lot of reading there, approx 8 full books in total, and a lot of them not included in the film.
Regarding the film "Saving Mr Banks", Tom Hanks makes a wonderful Walt Disney, but be prepared to take a
Couple of tissues with you, as it is a bit of a tear jerker!
Well worth the read in every way.

As the title of my review would suggest, I found this book interesting, but there were many times within it where I felt there was a jump or a gap. Throughout the book you are given snippet insights into the working life of Travers, however very little is told about her as a person in any real detail at all.
For the price, it gives you a good general overview,however, if you're after a detailed read this book may not be for you.

short novella on the life of mary poppins. interesting, but at times dry; although as ms travers went to great lengths to keep her private life out of the media; I do not think any wriitngs about her would be any better a good all round biography

This was laden with errors and had an annoying use of present tense. The adoption of her son was barely mentioned. It felt incomplete and generally disappointing.

At only 72 pages, it provides a very brief overview of the author's life. As a result, it has to skip over many aspects of her life such as her adopting a child. nevertheless, it provides a good summary of her life and her works, namely her Mary poppins books. As such, it is a good intoroductory work. recommended for those who would like short works about famous authors and for those who would like to explore more about this author in subsequent, lengthier biographies.
