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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Like all great children's classics, Mary Poppins is frightening and sad as well as magic and very funny"
Observer

"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

"Absolutely alive, and aglint with magic"
Walter de la Mare

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

“Original Mary Poppins... hmmm”

Stopped reading after chapter 3.
Would be good for Key Stage 2 children comparing;
nothing like Disney - Disney did a terrific job here.
The original character is stern, harsh and negative, the children love her... More
