By P.L. Travers, the author featured in the upcoming movie Saving Mr. Banks.

It all starts when Mary Poppins is blown by the east wind onto the doorstep of the Banks house. She becomes a most unusual nanny to Jane, Michael, and the twins. Who else but Mary Poppins can slide up banisters, pull an entire armchair out of an empty carpetbag, and make a dose of medicine taste like delicious lime-juice cordial? A day with Mary Poppins is a day of magic and make-believe come to life!

So amazing would read it day after day
Our reading class read this book as well as observed the play and film(Disney). The book was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. One of the major differences we noticed was that Poppins was much more of a witch like character in the book.
