Mary Poppins

Our rating: ***

In this, the first Mary Poppins book, Mary Poppins comes to be the governess of the four Banks children, Jane, Michael, and the Twins. Strict and stern she may be, but when it comes to having tea up next to the ceiling, telling stories, putting stars back in the sky and talking to Hamadryads, Mary Poppins is an amazing person.

The Mary Poppins books are different from the movie. In the books, Mary Poppins is much more stern. Oh, and I’m sorry, but the dancing penguins are not included in the books. It’s fun how Jane and Michael are never quite sure if their adventures were real or not.

  1. I think the movie is a mix of all the books.

  2. In the movie, Mary Poppins is different in character than in the books. The movie is pretty good, in my opinion.

  3. It’s not in the book, and I believe it’s spelled “supercalafragalisticexpealadocious”. However, P. L. Travers was a consultant for the movie, so maybe the author made it up.

  4. Is “superkalafragalisticixbealadocious” (if that’s how you spell it) in the book?

  5. To put an end to all spelling questions, I looked it up in the song lyrics. It’s “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” Whew. 34 letters. That’s longer than the alphabet!
