A blast of wind, a house-rattling bang, and the beloved magical nanny, Mary Poppins, arrives in the Banks home. Quicker than she can close her umbrella, she takes charge of the Banks children — Jane, Michael, and twins John and Barbara — and changes their lives forever.
Mary Poppins is like no other nanny the four Banks children have ever seen. She whirls into their home and "spit-spot," she works her inimitable brand of magic to make even the bland seem extraordinary. An endless source of fascinating adventure, she slides up the banister, produces an array of tricks from her seemingly empty carpetbag, and ensures the Banks' lives will never be the same.
"When Mary Poppins is about, her young charges can never tell where the real world merges into make-believe. Neither can the reader-and this is one of the hallmarks of good fantasy." — The New York Times
Delightful nonsense that defies an age boundary of appreciation." — Booklist
