Mary Poppins and the House Next Door

Our rating: ***

Miss Andrew, who used to be Mr. Banks’s governess, is coming to live in Number Eighteen, the house next door. The unpleasant Miss Andrew arrives, bringing with her Luti. (You’ll find out who or what Luti is if you read Mary Poppins and the House Next Door.) Luti is from the South Seas and soon feels he is being called home, so Mary Poppins, accompanied by the children, sends him home.

A pretty good book. Luti’s grandmother supposedly calms thunderstorms etc., but it’s still a pretty good book. The illustrator, Mary Shepard, is the daughter of Earnest Shepard, illustrator of the Winnie the Pooh books. Enjoy!
