5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun!, 14 Jun 2004
By 
Kurt A. Johnson (Marseilles, IL USA) - See all my reviews
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
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

Great book to follow the first Mary Poppins book. Funny and enjoyable. Shame there wasn't another film to go with it.
