This fantastic omnibus edition contains all six original Mary Poppins stories: Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, Mary Poppins in the Park, Mary Poppins in Cherry Tree Lane / Mary Poppins and the House Next Door (2-in-1 edition). All magical children's classics, it's the perfect gift. When their new nanny, Mary Poppins, arrives on a gust of the East Wind, greets their mother, and slides up the banister, Jane and Michael's lives are turned magically upside down. Familiar to anyone who has seen the film or the West End adaptation, you can now read all six of these wonderfully original tales about Jane and Michael's adventures with the magical Mary Poppins. In each book Mary takes the children on the most extraordinary outings: to a fun fair inside a pavement picture; to visit Uncle Andrew who floats up to the ceiling when he laughs; on a spectacular trip to see the Man-in-the-Moon! With her strict but fair, no-nonsense attitude, combined with amazing magical powers, things are never straightforward with Mary Poppins! But she has only promised to stay until the wind changes!

Then he could lock the Park Gates and slip away into the dark where his lack of a cap would not be noticed. If only the sun would go down! But the sun still lingered. No one went home.

with threepenny-bits as a Coster’s coat is with pearl buttons. “Come along. Stick ’em on!” repeated Mrs Corry, rubbing her hands with pleasant expectation. “You’ll find they won’t drop off.” Mary Poppins stepped forward and pressed her threepenny-bit against the collar of Mrs Corry’s coat. To the surprise of Jane and Michael, it stuck. Then they put theirs on – Jane’s on the right shoulder and Michael’s on the front hem. Theirs stuck, too. “How very extraordinary,” said Jane. “Not at all,

can be the matter?” “Yes, ma’am. No, ma’am. I expect they’re getting their teeth, ma’am,” said Mary Poppins, deliberately not looking in the direction of the Starling. “Oh, of course – that must be it,” said Mrs Banks brightly. “I don’t want teeth if they make me forget all the things I like best,” wailed John, tossing about in his cot. “Neither do I,” wept Barbara, burying her face in her pillow. “My poor ones, my pets – it will be all right when the naughty old teeth come through,” said

Every night Three Kids are born, Each with a Twinkly Nose, Each with a Twinkly Tail. Blue and black, Black and blue Is the evening sky As the Kids come through, Each with a Twinkly Nose, Each with a Twinkly Tail. Gay and bright And white as May The Three Kids drink At the Milky Way, Each with a Twinkly Nose, Each with a Twinkly Tail.
