More adventures of Mary Poppins and the Banks children in the park. ( )

This was the only Mary Poppins book I read and I didn't like it, probably because I read it at the wrong age, I was too old for it and it just didn't take - it wasn't like the film. Would have been better to have read it first before seeing the film. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyable entry in the Mary Poppins series. Unlike the three books before it, this has only six chapters instead of 10, which allows the stories to be a little longer and more interesting. I also like that as the series goes along, the other characters get caught up in the magical adventures too. ( )

My first real First Edition - in America, anyway! This book was written last, but the stories are said to have happened "during any of the three visits of Mary Poppins to the Banks family." Travers apparently did not want to have another magical arrival. As she says, "This is a word of warning to anybody who may be expecting they are in for a fourth visit. She cannot forever arrive and depart."

Michael is rescued from the Castle of the Cats, Jane creates a park in the park, a China Lion finds his long lost China Policeman, and the shadows from all sorts of characters find their way to the park for Hallowe'en, and to celebrate The Birthday - of Mary Poppins, of course. ( )

The summer day was hot and still. The cherry-trees that bordered the Lane could feel their cherries ripening - the green slowly turning to yellow and the yellow blushing red.

From the moment Mary Poppins arrives at Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane, everyday life at the Banks house is forever changed. This classic series tells the story of the world's most beloved nanny, who brings enchantment and excitement with her everywhere she goes.

Only the incomparable Mary Poppins can lead the Banks children on one marvelous adventure after another.

And that’s just for starters!
