Based on the original 1934 novel by P. L. Travers with beautiful illustrations by Genevieve Godbout, this collectable picture book is sure to become a favorite of Mary Poppins fans old and new.

When the East Wind blows Mary Poppins over Cherry Tree Lane and into the lives of the Banks children, nothing is ever the same! This picture book adaptation of the original novel is full of Mary's unique brand of whimsical adventure: There's a tea party on the ceiling, a visit to the night zoo, and a trip to a mysterious shop that sells stars. Told in a lyrical text with fresh yet timeless art by Genevieve Godbout, this version ofMary Poppins is perfect for reading aloud. Young and old, longtime friends of Mary, and those meeting her for the first time, will revel in this colorfully illustrated version of the story that inspired the image of the beloved nanny of page, stage, and screen.

P. L. Travers (1899-1996) was a drama critic, travel essayist, reviewer, and lecturer. She authored many books, but it is for the character of Mary Poppins that she is best remembered.
