Mary Poppins Comes Back (Mary Poppins, #2) by P.L. TraversIts hard to review books you really love. We loved this story, we loved the characters and the ideas. We all know Mary Poppins was stern, no-nonsense and doesnt explain anything but a downside for me was that I did feel very sad for the children who rarely see their parents and they know that their replacement parent, Mary Poppins may disappear at any moment. I found the part where Annabel was born and instantly handed over to Mary Poppins heartbraking, but an honest portrayal of the time.
But there are too many good parts to mention, Bad Wednesday is my favourite chapter, an adventure involving a Royal Doulton bowl. This part was so magical and eerie and left you with a feeling of not knowing what on earth just happened.
There is a scene where Mary discovers a Lark kept as a pet by Mr Banks old Nanny who is so horrible you can instantly see why Mr Banks is the way he is. We loved the way the children hear Mary Poppins side of the conversation with the lark so you can work out what the bird is saying. We loved the fact that Mary Poppins is disgusted by a bird being put in a cage and (view spoiler)[ not only sets the lark free but traps Mr Banks old Nanny in cage so she can experience what it feels like. (hide spoiler)]
I especially loved the part about Annabel, the youngest childs first week of life, they way she could remember the time before she was born but how she would lose this memory within a week. I so enjoyed hearing her thoughts, those parts were very special and philosophical, particularly p.110 if you have this copy.
There is so much else to mention, a visit to the constellations, a meeting with a descendent of Noah bringing spring, a carousel and conversation sweets, a wonderful, magical book.
