    I am ashamed to admit that I only recently found out that there were many Mary Poppins books! I watched a documentary about P.L.Travers and this is where I found out that there was a whole series of Mary Poppins books. Upon learning this I just had to get my hands on them so I got this lovely set containing the first 3 books The first thing I would say is that you should put all thoughts of the film out of your head! Although magical, this Mary Poppins is more true to life in that she shows that I am ashamed to admit that I only recently found out that there were many Mary Poppins books!

Although magical, this Mary Poppins is more true to life in that she shows that she is not always perfect, although she would never admit it! The books are darker than the film where everything is Disney-fied, but still aimed at children. The books are split into many stories, each chapter contains a separate story making it perfect for bedtime reading. The books do follow on from each other so I would suggest trying to read them in order, but there is no confusion if you do happen to read them out of order. As an adult I enjoyed these books, I believe that I got something out of them that children wouldn't, sort of hidden meanings. I think they are suitable for children and would suggest 7+ as the ideal age. The themes of the book do lend themselves well to further discussion so it could be a good book to be read in school If you haven't read a Mary Poppins book then I would rectify that immediately before she takes offence and pops down on her umbrella and pays you a visit!

    I have to say that Walt Disney brought more colorful magic to this than the author. I am a fan and always will be of the Disney classic and I think that might be clouding my review a bit. Just the opposite of so many times when the movie is not as good as the book, I find that the book is not as good as the movie. Very cleverly written, yet I found myself put off a few times as it was all quite... well weird! I am giving it 3 stars because two is not enough. This is a book club pick.

    After reading books 1-4 of Travers series, I have decided to put the rest on the Decided Not To Read shelf. Why? I was very disappointed in this series and am happy to be done. I don't plan on going this way again. In the end, while Travers would find it depressing, I much prefer Disney's film version of her nanny, both for children and adults. I will not be recommending this series. You can read my previous reviews for more information, but I'm relieved of Mary Poppins for good.

    I got these books for my 11th birthday and read them all the next year, and also "Mary Poppins in the Park," which isn't in the boxed set in the picture (but I didn't want to have to write about each book separately). The main things I remember about the book that are different from the Disney movie: 1. Mary Poppins isn't quite as pretty and nice as Julie Andrews (but she's still awesome) 2. There's a younger sibling who can talk with Mary Poppins until its first birthday. I just thought the idea o I got these books for my 11th birthday and read them all the next year, and also "Mary Poppins in the Park," which isn't in the boxed set in the picture (but I didn't want to have to write about each book separately).

    My mother purchased this set for me when she saw Mary Poppins on Broadway. As a child I never read any of the books but adored the movie. I will review each book separately but do feel this is a set that any child ages 8-100 would enjoy. I have already read most of the first book and look forward to reading it to my children at bedtime and then passing the books on to them when they are old enough to enjoy them, themselves. Nicely illustrated and perfect short stories for you and your loved ones My mother purchased this set for me when she saw Mary Poppins on Broadway.

    I'm enjoying this book, especially the way it's very different from the movie. Mary Poppins is full of magic, but is very severe in actually admitting to it, which makes poor Jane and Michael's heads spin. There are a set up baby twins in this book, and although Bert is a friend of Mary's, he isn't in the book nearly as much as he was in the movie. My plan is to get the rest of the Mary Poppins books for my classroom library. I think the kids will really enjoy reading these.

    I have always loved the film of Mary Poppin's and it was a big part of my childhood, so I thought it would be about time I read it and I'm not afraid to say that I thought it was delightful! At the age of 20, reading children's books can become less magical but all of these stories were a pleasure to read and wonderfully written. I'd encourage anyone, of any age, to read it.

    what more can be said about these classics. I read these enchanting tales for myself, my daughter and because the writing and characters are forever appealing. You will still love these books, even if you have only seen the Disney film (which to be honest is a great adaptation). Keep a copy of these around for yourself and your family!

    My favourite children's books! So full of wisdom and hides much of the New Age spirituality wisdom we hear today, which makes it an interesting read for adults. Highly recommended!

    Choose any one of these, or any other in the series. But make an effort to get to know the REAL Mary Poppins, she's definitely not a Julie Andrews.

    I wasn't as entertained by this as I thought I would be since I watched the film obsessively as a child. I imagine I would've enjoyed it more had I read the book in my youth.

    These are so creative. I love the Mary Poppins character (she's a little tougher in the books than she is in the movie). These are so creative. I love the Mary Poppins character (she's a little tougher in the books than she is in the movie).

    The movie did NOT do the books justice. (Sorry, Julie Andrews! Love you, anyway!)
