This book was a Christmas gift from my husband. It is gorgeous to look at with wonderful art & pictures. I really enjoyed reading about the journey that Mary Poppins made from book, to film & finally to the stage. I love it in all forms & have bern enchanted by it from first viewing of the film, to multiple readings of the books over the years & to being lucky enough to have seen it on stage twice now.
