Summary

Mary Poppins returns to Cherry Tree Lane and adventures are sure to follow! The second book in the original Mary Poppins series.

On sailed the curious figure, its feet neatly clearing the tops of the trees. They could see the face now, and the well-known features - coal-black hair, bright blue eyes and nose turned upwards like the nose of a Dutch doll. The figure drifted down between the lime trees and alighted primly down upon the grass. "Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins!" they cried, and flung themselves upon her.

Author Bio

P.L. Travers was born in 1899 in Maryborough in Queensland, Australia and was one of three sisters. She worked as a secretary, a dancer and an actress, but writing was P.L.Travers's real love, and for many years she was a journalist. It was while recuperating from a serious illness that she wrote Mary Poppins "to while away the days, but also to put down something that had been in my mind for a long time", she said. She received an OBE in 1977, and died in 1996.

Review Quotes

Walter de la Mare
