Four classic stories about the most famous nanny in the world, all together in a fabulous new boxed set!
Who can slide up banisters, banish naughtiness with a swift "Spit-spot," and turn a make-believe sidewalk drawing into a lovely day in the park? Mary Poppins, of course! From the moment the beloved nanny arrives at Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane, everyday life for the Banks family is full of excitement. This box set features four adventures in paperback: Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, and Mary Poppins in the Park.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Reading the original Mary Poppins stories is a perfect complement to the new Mary Poppins movie, SAVING MR. BANKS, where we can get a glimpse of the author, P.L. Travers.
This is not your movie Julie Andrews Mary Poppins. The real nanny believes much more in tough love. And the children are the better for it. The adventures the children take are numerous and all are good learning experiences, even if the children don't think so at the time.If you've seen the movie go check out what it started as!
