About the Author

P. L. Travers (1899-1996) was a drama critic, travel essayist, reviewer, lecturer, and the creator of Mary Poppins. Ms. Travers wrote several other books for adults and children, but it is for the character of Mary Poppins that she is best remembered.

The upcoming December 2013 movie Saving Mr. Banks is about P. L. Travers reflecting on her childhood while meeting with filmmaker Walt Disney during production for the adaptation of her eponymous novel. December 2013 also marks the 50th anniversary of the Mary Poppins film.

Mary Poppins

It all starts when Mary Poppins is blown by the east wind onto the doorstep of the Banks house. She becomes a most unusual nanny to Jane, Michael, and the twins. Who else but Mary Poppins can slide up banisters, pull an entire armchair out of an empty carpetbag, and make a dose of medicine taste like delicious lime-juice cordial? A day with Mary Poppins is a day of magic and make-believe come to life!
