Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers

Discover the joy and wonder of Mary Poppins in the classic adventures!

The original best-loved classic about the world’s most famous nanny – Mary Poppins.

When the Banks family advertise for a nanny, Mary Poppins and her talking umbrella appear out of the sky, ready to take the children on extraordinary adventures.

Mary Poppins is strict but fair, and soon Michael and Jane are whisked off to a funfair inside a pavement picture and on many more outings with their wonderful new nanny!

Needless to say, when at last ‘the wind changes’ and she flies away, the children are devastated. But the magic of Mary Poppins will stay with the Banks family forever.

The original story of the world’s most famous nanny, Mary Poppins, is a timeless classic that has enchanted generations.

The Disney movie starring Julie Andrews is among my all-time favourites. I must have seen it at least a dozen times. I love Saving Mr Banks. Yet, I’ve never read the books. I have no idea why. I’ve also never seen Mary Poppins Returns. I have the audiobook of this as well I will listen to at some point. This was an absolute treat to read and very close to the movie. I found myself hearing the voices of the actors in my head as I read. I understand why the books are adored by so many. This was a treat.
