Mary Poppins, the magical nanny created by author P.L. Travers in the 1930s, continues to entertain young readers generations later. The 5 books in this set, published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, represent the perfect mixture of whimsy, humor, and wisdom – the greatest elements of children’s literature. The first 4 books include the original black and white illustrations by Mary Shepard, and the fifth book, Mary Poppins in the Kitchen, features color illustrations, easy-to-follow recipes, and a bonus short story. All books include the full unabridged texts as originally published.
Our custom jackets each feature Mary’s iconic umbrella, which carried her to work at Number 17 Cherry Tree Lane in London. We created two designs for this book set, one has Mary’s umbrella set against a pink and blue London skyline and one with a bright yellow umbrella set against a simple red yet beautiful background.
