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.
Mary Poppins in the Park
Things happen to the Banks children when they go to the park with Mary Poppins. Strange things, funny things, unexpected things: nothing is ever straightforward with Mary Poppins about – and it’s never boring either! Mary Poppins, neat and prim in her blue skirt and a new hat trimmed with a crimson tulip, looked at them over her knitting. She was sitting bolt upright against the tree, with a plaid rug spread on the lawn around her. Her handbag sat tidily by her side. And above her, from a flowering branch, the parrot umbrella dangled. She gave a little sniff. The stories in this collection happened during all three of the visits Mary Poppins made to the Banks family. Jane and Michael are never quite sure whether what happens to them in the Park is just a dream – or not; things are never straightforward with Mary Poppins!
Mary Poppins Opens the Door
Mary Poppins is back in the third book in the classic series. Up in the sky a tiny spark hovered and swayed in the darkness. What could it be…? Still they waited. And still the spark grew ever larger and brighter. Then suddenly Jane caught her breath. And Michael gave a gasp. Down came the spark, growing longer and wider. And as it came, it took on a shape that was strange and also familiar. Out of the glowing core of light emerged a curious figure – a figure in a black straw hat and a blue coat trimmed with silver buttons.
Mary Poppins Comes Back
Mary Poppins returns to Cherry Tree Lane and adventures are sure to follow! The second book in the original Mary Poppins series. On sailed the curious figure, its feet neatly clearing the tops of the trees. They could see the face now, and the well-known features – coal-black hair, bright blue eyes and nose turned upwards like the nose of a Dutch doll. The figure drifted down between the lime trees and alighted primly down upon the grass. “Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins!” they cried, and flung themselves upon her.
