Editorial Reviews

Fans of the famous umbrella-toting nanny will welcome the return of Mary Poppins from A to Z by P.L. Travers, illus. by Mary Shepard, first published in 1962. From "A is for Annabel... out for an Airing, on Mary Poppins' Arm," to "Z is for Zodiac" on a brightly lit New Year's Eve night ("All the neighbors are full of song and Zest"), the book brims with humor and charming scenes of the Banks children at play.
