Description

If you are expecting Mary Poppins like the Disney version starring Julie Andrews DO NOT read this book. The original story of the worlds most famous nanny, Mary Poppins, is a timeless classic that has enchanted generations. When the children's nanny, Katie Nanna, storms out in a huff, Mary Poppins arrives at their home, complete with her travelling carpet bag, blown in by a very strong east wind. She also plays a similar role in the musical, where she sings the song "Feed the Birds" as a duet with Mary.

Later they see Andrew and the stray dog walking up to Miss Lark’s together, Andrew barks at Miss Lark and Mary translates saying Andrew is stating that his friend Willoughby must now live with him in Miss Lark’s house and sleep on a silk cushion in Miss Lark’s room, but that they will never wear overcoats or go to the hairdressers, otherwise they will both go and live elsewhere and never come back. 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. He is a young boy (mid-teens) and is very lazy and forgetful, doing such things as putting bootblack on Mr. In the 1964 film, he is aware of how Mary Poppins really feels about the children, but she denies it, saying that they should love her father more than her. When the strict but fair Mary Poppins and her talking umbrella appear out of the sky, the children Michael and Jane get set for some extraordinary adventures.Such a marvellous blend of the mundane and the mystical, of the family and the stranger, of one family and the universe.

So it was quite astonishing on reading the original books now that the book version of Mary Poppins is completely different from the film version of Mary Poppins. When Michael wonders aloud what happens at the zoo after hours and finds himself with prime seating to find out: it may be far-fetched but surely if we humans weren't so lucky as to be in charge it could very well be the case! In all the books, Mary Popppins simply appears, have adventures with the children, and then disappears. Jacket edges rubbed with minimal loss from corners, jacket spine faded, small bookseller plate on rear endpaper. But I think Mary Poppins as a book has outlived her life, and the movie has taken over and made her better.Corry with her gingerbread stars, The Balloon Woman with her personalized flying balloons, and Miss Calico, with her peppermint sticks that are actually flying horses (written remarkably similar to the balloon story.
