MerryMary on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
A nice little framing story of Mr. and Mrs. Banks being gone for a week - and Mary Poppins teaching the children to cook. There is one short chapter for each day of the week - and classic characters make cameo appearances to help out. All the recipes are in the back. The meals are distinctly English. Mary Shepard's illustrations are, as always, a delight.
