When Mary Poppins takes charge of the Banks children, she changes their lives forever. Unlike other nannies, she makes ordinary events extraordinary. Who else could slide up banisters, pull wonders out of an empty carpetbag, lead the children on magical adventures - and still tuck them in at the end of the day? None other than their beloved Mary Poppins.
Mary Poppins, the classic children's book written by P L Travers was originally published in 1934 with illustrations by Mary Shepard. It became the first in a series of books about the title character, a magical English nanny who in the first book arrives by windstorm to care for the Banks children of Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane, London: Jane (the eldest), Michael, and twin babies John and Barbara. Mary Poppins' best friend is Bert, a Cockney who seems to have a number of jobs, including chimney sweep and pavement artist, and is the one adult friend of Mary who is completely accustomed to her magic.
