The Real Life Mary Poppins:The. Life and Times of P.L. Travers
on 13 December 2013
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.
