Mary Poppins

Publisher: Harper Collins

Mary Poppins arrives with the East wind to Number Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane to respond to the needs of Jane and Michael, whose parents are too busy to give them the attention they crave.

With her no-nonsense style and a liberal sprinkling of imagination, Mary Poppins descends into their lives and brings order, as well as magic, into the chaos of the Banks' household. When the wind changes, it is time for Mary Poppins to leave, but the Banks family will never be quite the same again.

First published in 1934, Mary Poppins is the first in a series of books that are much darker than the popular musical it inspired.

This  omnibus edition contains all six original Mary Poppins stories: Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, Mary Poppins in the Park, Mary Poppins in Cherry Tree Lane / Mary Poppins and the House Next Door
