Mary Poppins

by Travers, P L

Written by P.L. Travers and illustrated by Mary Shepard, Mary Poppins tells the tale of a magical English nanny who pops into Number 17 Cherry Tree Lane to care for the Banks children, carried by her umbrella along the east wind. At the end of the story, after many fantastical adventures with their stern governess, Poppins ‘pops’ out again on the West wind. The first in this series of eight books, Mary Poppins was published in 1934, and the seven subsequent novels that followed were published all the way through 1988. In 1964 Disney made a movie composed out of the first four of the books of the series, starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. P.L. Travers wrote eight  books, as well as several other books for children and adults.  Her writing was not limited to novels, as she also served as a drama critic, travel essayist, reviewer and lecturer in her career. -
