This classic series tells the story of the world's most beloved nanny, who brings enchantment and excitement with her everywhere she goes. -- She's back! Mary Poppins, everyone's favorite nanny, has returned to take the Banks children on another unforgettable adventure. On the most magical of nights, Midsummer's Eve, all kinds of strange things can happen -- mythical visitors come down from the heavens and animals speak. But Mary Poppins takes it all in stride, drawing everyone, even the trembling Park Keeper, into the spirit of a romantic and magical holiday.

P. L. TRAVERS (1899-1996) was a drama critic, travel essayist, reviewer, lecturer, and author of the 'Mary Poppins' books. She wrote several other books for adults and children, but it is for the character of Mary Poppins that she is best remembered.Review:
''When Mary Poppins is about, her young charges can never tell where the real world merges into make-believe. Neither can the reader, and that is one of the hallmarks of good fantasy.'' --New York Times, praise for the series

From where, we do not know and are not likely to be told, for it is one of Mary Poppins' characteristics that she never explains. However, here she is, pushing the perambulator, an upright figure with bright pink cheeks, bright blue eyes and the familiar turned-up nose, taking the children on a new adventure, making the Park Keeper quail and at the same time drawing him, too, into the general magic of Midsummer Eve . . ." (dustwrapper blurb). Benedict Read, son of Sir Herbert Read, was an art historian, for most of his career at the University of Leeds. Inscribed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 4eB100005
