This is a great children's story about a nanny who doesn't believe in references but who is very magical and very strict. When P.L. Travers (1899-1996) saw the Disney movie, with its dancing penguins (not in the book), she wept in the theater. ( )

I read this book because I love the movie and wanted to check it out. This is a time in my life where the movie was better than the book. Mary Poppins is so full of herself in this book. The little side stories I like, but I really feel the movie was way better than this book. ( )

I can’t believe I didn’t read this book as a kid because it’s right up my alley! Magical realism all the way! ( )

If you want to find Cherry Tree Lane all you have to do is ask the Policeman at the cross-roads.
But Jane and Michael were not taken in by that snap. For they could see in Mary Poppins's eyes something that, if she were anybody else but Mary Poppins, might have been described as tears.... (p. 194)
