It's been years since I read this book. It wasn't quite as perfect as I remembered, but I still really enjoyed it! The book Mary Poppins is so different from Julie Andrews. She's snarky and grumpy and rude and vain, but I somehow still like her. This book is episodic...each chapter is basically its own story. They tend to be a little random, but I don't mind that. I love the magical imagery of say, Mary Poppins pasting stars in the sky with a ladder propped up against the sky. I personally think the book is better than the movie. It's charming in that way that only British children's literature can be! Hoping to actually continue on with the series soon.
