P.L. Travers

Pamela Lyndon Travers created the beloved Mary Poppins (1934), the first book in the series in which an English nanny provides magical escapes for her otherwise board charges, the Banks’ children. The series includes: Mary Poppins , Mary Poppins Comes Back , Mary Poppins Opens the Door , Mary Poppins in the Park , Mary Poppins in Cherry Tree Lane/Mary Poppins and the House Next Door . Most readers remember the 1964 musical fantasy Disney movie, Mary Poppins starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke.
Though Mary Poppins is not yet available in the public domain, we encourage readers to explore American Literature’s Children’s Library for a wide selection of fairy tales and children’s adventure stories, including The Railway Children by E. Nesbit.
