Mary Poppins from A to Z

MARY POPPINS IS BACK AGAIN! With incomparable wit, P. L.Travers has written twenty-six short episodes, one for each letter of the alphabet, about Mary Poppins and all the characters of the earlier books. In each one, as many words as possible begin with a particular letter. For example: "M is for Michael and Mary Poppins. They are coming home from the Market with Meat and Marmalade. 'Just a Minute,' says Mary Poppins. 'The Mousetrap is Missing. How Mysterious!'" Thus begins the part for M.

For all who know and love Mary Poppins, and for smaller children who still have that joy to come, this wonderful, funny, crisp, tongue-twisting text— with delightful, detailed drawings in two colors by Mary Shepard—will be an irresistible, never-to-be-forgotten experience. It will join the four earlier books—Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, and Mary Poppins in the Park— on a very special shelf in every child's own library.

What reviewers have said about:

MARY POPPINS "This is one of the freshest and most delightful fantasies we have read for a long time."—Saturday Review

MARY POPPINS COMES BACK "You might not think a sequel to 'Mary Poppins' could be as good as the original appearance of this remarkable person, but it is 5 top rating in fantasy and humor."—HERSCHEL BRICKELL, New York Post

MARY POPPINS OPENS THE DOOR "I, who hailed her [earlier] as 'a delightful new character who has come to stay,' think Mary Poppins Opens the Door is even better—so rich is it in nursery lore, so sparkling with magic, so warmly understanding of children." —ANNE CARROLL MOORE, Horn Book

MARY POPPINS IN THE PARK "Mary Poppins, with her blend of fantasy and nonsense, pervades this book, which is at once poetry and fun and wisdom. The pictures consort well with the gay, wise text."—IRWIN EDMAN, New York Herald Tribune Books
