Maria Poppina ab A ad Z
P. L. Travers
Translated into Latin by G. M. Lyne
Illustrated by Mary Shepard

Mary Poppins is her own astringent self in any language, and as Maria Poppina, parading primly through the twenty-six alphabetical episodes of this Latin adaptation of Mary Poppins from A to Z, she demonstrates again that her power is undiminished. With her accustomed aplomb she reprimands and restrains the inhabitants of the Banks house—domus Band—at Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane and all who cross their paths, as she has done since she first appeared with the East Wind.

G. M. Lyne's scholarly translation, skillfully adapted to the demands of the ancient language, sacrifices none of the incomparable wit and charm of the original. The illustrations, though in a different color scheme, are the same ones that delight readers of the English-language edition. Together, text and pictures add up to a special treasure for Mary Poppins' admirers of all ages, as well as for Latinists, either beginning or advanced.
