by P.L. Travers, Mary Shepard
I love how Mary Poppins can be stern with the children, but is also kind and loving. She has a no nonsense attitude, but secretly loves to take the children on nonsensical and silly outings!
The writing is enchanting, and has a beautiful charm in its simplicity! I love all the Mary Poppins books!
I wish that the book had more of a cohesive plot line, but they are individual snippets, more like separate short stories, without any real connection between chapters.
I also got bored sometimes with the long descriptions, and interminable supporting characters who show up in a scene with no real purpose.
But overall, I enjoyed this book very much! The old-fashioned charm is palpable, and Mary Poppins can do no wrong.
