Who else but Mary Poppins can lead the Banks children—Jane, Michael, and the twins—on such extraordinary adventures? Together they all meet the Goosegirl and the Swineherd, argue with talking cats on a distant planet, make the acquaintance of the folks who live under dandelions, and celebrate a birthday by dancing with their own shadows.
And that's just for starters!
The fourth and final book in this beloved series features six whimsical tales that occurred during the magical nanny's three previous visits. "She cannot forever arrive and depart," P. L. Travers explains—though after joining Mary Poppins for these six adventures, who can blame a reader for wanting her to come back again and again?
