Om författaren

Born in Australia to an Irish father and a Scottish mother, Helen Lyndon Goff aka. P. L. Travers was a voracious reader and began to write while she was still a child. She did some acting but quickly moved into literary and dramatic criticism; she wrote some highly respected poetry as well. visa mer However, it is her series of books for children, starting with Mary Poppins (1934), on which her fame rests. The prim, kindly, and enchanting nanny takes charge of the Banks's household and brings the children a seemingly endless stream of fantasy adventures. The book was an immediate success. Walt Disney's (see Vol. 3) musical version, in 1964, brought the stories to an even wider audience. Subsequent books about Mary Poppins include Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, Mary Poppins in the Park, Mary Poppins from A to Z, and Mary Poppins and the House Next Door. Other more recent books include About Sleeping Beauty (1975) and Two Pair of Shoes (1980). Travers was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1977. She lived into advanced old age, but her health was declining toward the end of her life. Travers died in London on April 23,1996 at the age of 96. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Allmänna fakta



Mary Poppins is a classical modern fantasy book because it is fun and interesting to read. Children might relate to the story or gain new perspective of the story through their creative imagination. This book is great for elementary children when wanting to create an activity related to the book.

Mary Poppins returns, falling from the sky like a shooting star! Soon Mary and the kids are off on a new round of marvelous adventures. A visit to Mr. Twigley's music box-filled attic, an encounter with the Marble Boy, a ride on Miss Calico's enchanted candy canes--all part of an average day out with the world's most beloved nanny.

Pulled down from the clouds at the end of a kite string, Mary Poppins is back. In Mary's care, the Banks children meet the King of the Castle and the Dirty Rascal, visit the upside-down world of Mr. Turvy and his bride, Miss Topsy, and spend a breathless afternoon above the park, dangling from a clutch of balloons.

The literary Mary Poppins is quite unlike the movie Mary Poppins. For one, she's not nice. For two, she has no mission to improve the children or their relationship with their parents. And, finally, the movie version hints at Marry Poppins' vanity and mysteriousness, but in the book Mary Poppins is much more vain and mysterious.

Even though it's got some sharp edges, the book is completely wonderful. It's more like a series of short stories than a novel. There are adventures in the zoo at night, a look at where stars come from and how babies can hear the wind and the birds and the sun talking. Mary Poppins is magical in a completely befuddling way. What is she? Where did she come from? Why do magical things always happen when someone's birthday falls on a full moon? There are no answers. Instead you're left wondering and musing, just like Jane and Michael.

The audio book narrator was very, very good as well. This would be a great choice for a family with young children (ages 4 or 5 and up) to listen to together. It would also make a great bedtime read aloud.
