Publisher's Summary

Another timeless story about Mary Poppins, the world's favorite nanny, and her magical adventures with the Banks family.

From the moment Mary Poppins arrives at Number Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane, everyday life at the Banks house is forever changed. Jane, Michael, and the twins have never had such a wonderful nanny, who brings enchantment and excitement everywhere she goes.

In Mary Poppins Comes Back, the beloved nanny returns when she's pulled down from the clouds by the string of Michael's kite. In her care, the Banks children meet the King of the Castle and the Dirty Rascal, visit the upside-down world of Mr. Turvy and his bride, Miss Topsy, and spend a breathless afternoon above the park, dangling from a clutch of balloons. Surprises are sure to pop up when Mary Poppins is around!

so so

Some of the narration was too intense, a little scary. Mostly good but weird story.

More from the unusual nanny

What did you like best about Mary Poppins Comes Back? What did you like least?

There is - at it's heart - a sweetness to the character and stories. However, Mary is a vain and annoyingly pretentious character. Far from the lovable character in the film. You need to dig a bit to see that sweetness.

Would you recommend Mary Poppins Comes Back to your friends? Why or why not?

No, not really. Perhaps if I knew anyone raised by nannies or was British - which I am not. Perhaps then the story would resonate a bit better.

Which scene was your favorite?

The rather sweet and sad scene with Annabelle and the starling.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably not - I am not the target audience.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoyed the first novel, you will probably enjoy this one. Do not expect Disney's Mary Poppins. This one is magical, yes, but also a bit acerbic.

Fun and imaginative!

My children loved this. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed listening along with them. We're looking forward to listening to the rest of the Mary Poppins series.
