Rereading them now is going back in time.In Mary Poppins Comes Back she does—come back—as unexpectedly and unapologetically as she left at the beginnin of Mary Poppins.

This bestselling, P.L. Travers, knew what appealed to children of my generation.

Mary Poppins does come back, after leaving Michael and Jane at the beginnin of this last novel ( just as she did in the sequel).

Even when it goe to Disney.One could say that thi new Emily Blunt Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Returns, follows ( loosely) the events that take place in the econd nove in this series.

I 'm just not interested, probably because Disney broke me and I nly care about Jane and Michael.) But ome of the ways that occur in he book do happen in the Emily Blunt movie, such as a visit to Topsy-Turvy ( who is decidedly nothing like Meryl Streep) and he bit with the balloons and an adventure inside the painting on a bowl.And, for the record, if you did n't like the way Mary Poppins was portrayed in the sevent ook, you wo n't like her any more in a essay.

Mr. Banks is insufferable and probably needs a nanny more than Jane and Michael ( and those twins and new baby) .There seems to e more magic in his ook than in the third.

Shit happens that are completely out of the ordinary, so either Mary Poppins drugged everyone again or maybe there is some magic in her carpetbag after all.As is typical with many second books, the formula is the same as the irst, almost chapter-for-chapter.

he hildren are still charming ( including he new addition of Annabel), the sibling are still useless and blithering, there are even hints that certain members of the staff are also somehow magical or something, and Mary Poppins is still cross and priggish and mean and glaring.

he magic is still somethin of fun to read in parts, but there does n't sugges to hav any rhyme or reason to it ( like, who IS Mary Poppins?

We see a couple more glimpses of elements used in the ovie and stage musical in this novel, including the fearsome Miss Andrew, the former nanny of Mr. Banks.

Obviousl enough I enjoyed this sequel more than the last ook.

She 's pretty stuck-up and strict for a nanny who just blew into town with the wind.One of the flaws to the movi adaptation is that he screenplay makes all of the adults seem ridiculous and the children the only sane characters.
