It all starts when Mary Poppins is blown by the east wind onto the doorstep of the Banks house. She becomes a most unusual nanny to Jane, Michael, and the twins. Who else but Mary Poppins can slide upbanisters, pull an entire armchair out of an empty carpetbag, and make a dose of medicine taste like delicious lime-juice cordial? A day with Mary Poppins is a day of magic and make-believe come to life!
- I read this a long long time ago, and I didn't really remember any of this book! I'm glad I re-read it.
- This is a charming and magical story.
- The movie isn't much like the book. There are a few things that are the same, but not much.
- I enjoy the proper snooty Julie Andrews version of Mary Poppins, but the actual character in the book is even more snooty. I don't understand why she always denied knowing about the little adventures the kids had.
- Jane and Michael were a bit misbehaved, especially Michael.
- I liked all the fun "outings" and things the characters went on. Each one was unique and fun.
- I really liked all the fun illustrations. I'm one of those that still enjoys some pictures in my books!
- I read this cause I'm excited to see Saving Mr. Banks! I wanted to know the book that Disney and Travers were debating about! From the trailer, I gathered that the book was more about the father, but Mr. Banks was hardly in the book at all. I wonder if he is in the sequels more.
