Product description

Review

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

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

Mary Poppins is the Good Fairy, whom we are all seeking”
Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

P.L. Travers was born in 1899 in Maryborough in Queensland, Australia and was one of three sisters. She was brought up in the deep country, simply, but traditionally. She began her writing career in Australia, publishing many poems, then came to England and wrote for newspapers in Ireland and England. She began Mary Poppins ‘out of the blue’. A friend saw the first few chapters and took it to a publisher who at once offered a contract for the whole book.

The film with Julie Andrews is jolly good (despite Dick Van Dyke) but like most films, it is nothing to the book. Much darker than the film, more gothic, and much more magical - I am now 35 and have just bought myself a new copy to revisit this wonderful story - especially the sweetshop owner who snaps off her fingers to give to the children to eat! Can you imagine Disney allowing this?!

This book is amazing. After seeing the new Disney and Cameron Mackintosh version of this fantastic story five times now I can understand why P.L Travers didn't like the film version!
Her story writing reflects that of Mary Poppins herself, very prim and practically perfect in everyway.
This collection of Mary Poppins stories are amazing, not only only for children but for adults as well, no wonder this book and the stage show is a hit.
