Reviewed by Elaina Montalvo (6 years old): mary poppins was great. I loved it so much. my favorite part was the friend luti because he was friends with mary poppins and the kids
Okay, so here's the story on this one, the last Mary Poppins book, written by P.L. Travers in 1988, when the author was in her 90's, and more than 50 years after the her first Mary Poppins book. For some reason, the San Francisco Public Library had never purchased a copy of this. After checking to see if they wanted it (they do), I decided to purchase one. Hardbound copies were way out of my price range, but I did manage to find a semi-affordable paperback version in England, through Alibris.
Mary Poppins and the House Next Door can be read at almost any point in the sequence of the series. After the third book, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, the subsequent books detail adventures involving Mary and the children which presumably occur sometime after her initial arrival and before her final departure at the end of the third book.

This particular book could be classified as more of a novelette or a long short story involving Mr. Banks's inimical governess Miss Andrews who takes up reside
Mary Poppins books follow the same structure pretty much. Unruly children, Mary Poppins arrives unannounced in a strange way and every one tries to behave while she takes them on strange adventures. This story stays closer to home more as the empty house next door is under threat of a new resident. Miss Andrew makes a return with an addition of a small boy and a lot of the focus is around this. It is a sweet story with the children and their new neighbour as they try to play together without the ...more

It was probably the best in the series, except the stories with Castor and Pollux, and the ones with the statue dude... I can't remember his name!
Enjoyed this one better than some of the others actually, now I only have the one in the kitchen left to read
great book. i love mary poppins.
Another Mary Poppins book for me to adore. This is more of short story but a fine addition the the Mary Poppins library.

In this last story from P.L. Travers, everyone on Cherry Tree Lane is in a bother. Someone has bought the house at #18. From Mr & Mrs Banks, to the Admiral all fantasize about their ideal neighbor who now lives in the abandon house.

No spoilers here regarding who decides to make the house their home, but in true Poppins fashion, in the end everything is spit - spot and right
Another cute Mary Poppins story.
Oh, jaj! Igen, nem egy 35 évesnek íródott a könyv.
Két történet, az egyikben Szent Iván éje van, ahol igen furcsa dolgok történnek és kicsit sokat kalandozott el a gondolatom. Másikban új lakó jön a Cseresznyefa utcában, aki régi ismerőse a Banks családnak és hoz magával egy helyes gyereket is.
A második történet jobban tetszett, elképzelhetőbb volt, kivéve a vége.
Delightful from top to toe.
Much as I like Mary Poppins and some of the fantastic elements in the books, they tended to be pretty formulaic.
Kind of waters down the emotional impact of her leaving if she keeps coming back to the same place and family.
Wonderful ending to the series.
Mary Poppins is back with another wonderful adventure... Wonder what's in store in this book...
Its supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

(Yup yup that's spelled correctly,LOL)

This only gets three stars because it would have only been one chapter in one of the first three books.
Aww! This was cute! I think this may be one of my favorite Poppins adventures yet.
A cute short story from the Mary Poppins world.
