About This Book
For all her offended sniffs and humphs, Mary Poppins is likely the most exciting
nanny England--and the world--has ever seen. Young Jane and Michael Banks have
no idea what's in store for them when Mary Poppins blows in on the east wind one
autumn evening. Soon, though, the children are having tea on the ceiling, flying
around the world in a minute (visiting polar bears and hyacinth macaws on the
way), and secretly watching as their unusual nanny pastes gold paper stars to
the sky. Mary's stern and haughty exterior belies the delightful nonsense she
harbors; her charges, as well as her literary fans, respect and adore her.
Grownups who have forgotten Mary Poppins's true charms will be tickled pink to rediscover this uniquely unsentimental fantasy. Younger readers will walk into Mary's world without batting an eye--of course the animals in the zoo exchange places with people on the night of the full moon. Certainly a falling star landing on a cow's horn will make her dance ceaselessly. Why wouldn't one be able to enter into a chalk picture? The only disappointing aspect of this classic is that it doesn't go on forever! (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter
