Mary Poppins, the unflappable nanny of the Banks children, is back again! It is a day like any other for Mary Poppins and the Banks family in Number Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane—until a telegram arrives with the momentous news that Miss Andrews, the Holy Terror, is coming to live in the house next door. The house has always been empty and so has become the treasure of Cherry Tree Lane—each neighbor has filled it with personal dreams. But now peace in the lane is gravely threatened. Can Mary Poppins, in her own magical, whimsical way, resolve the crisis?

About the Author-
  • P. L. Travers (1899-1996) was a drama critic, travel essayist, reviewer, lecturer, and author of the Mary Poppins books. She wrote several other books for adults and children, but it is for the character of Mary Poppins that she is best remembered.

    June 1, 1989
    The world-famous nanny is back, still living with the admirable Banks family, and still messing with the lives of the other folks on Cherry Tree Lane. This time, Mr. Banks's former governess, Miss Andrew, takes up residence in a previously empty home on the street. Living with her is Luti, a ``brown-skinned'' child, as a kind of a slave to her every need; he escapes from the house only once a day when the old bag naps. And so Mary Poppins rescues Luti from the tyranny of service so that he may return to his family, whom he believes is calling him home. There are funny elements here, and occasional glimpses of the spit-spot Poppins that so many have loved. But this work is not half as charming as its predecessors, and the episode with Luti seems contrived. Ages 8-12.
