"Like all great children's classics, Mary Poppins is frightening and sad as well as magic and very funny"
"As I grow older I realise how much of my world view was created by Pamela Travers and Mary Shepard, her illustrator, or perhaps how much they took the things that children thought about the world and made them real, and gave us one adult who was, ultimately, on our side." Neil Gaiman
