When Jane and Michael Banks draw up an advertisement for a nanny, Mary Poppins and her talking umbrella appear out of the sky, ready to take them on extraordinary adventures. Mary Poppins is strict but fair, and soon the Banks children are whisked off to a funfair inside a pavement picture and on many more outings with their wonderful new nanny! Needless to say, when at last 'the wind changes' and she flies away, the children are devastated. But the magic of Mary Poppins will stay with the Banks family forever. The original story of the world's most famous nanny, Mary Poppins, is a timeless classic that has enchanted generations.
