Mary Poppins Opens the Door
Mary Poppins Opens the Door | P. L. Travers
By P.L. Travers, the author featured in the upcoming movie Saving Mr. Banks. From the moment Mary Poppins arrives at Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane, everyday life at the Banks house is forever changed. This classic series tells the story of the world's most beloved nanny, who brings enchantment and excitement with her everywhere she goes. Featuring the charming original cover art by Mary Shepard, these new editions are sure to delight readers of all ages. Mary Poppins reappears just in time! According to her tape measure, Jane and Michael have grown "Worse and Worse" since she went away. But the children won't have time to be naughty with all that Mary has planned for them. A visit to Mr. Twigleys music box-filled attic, an encounter with the Marble Boy, and a ride on Miss Calicos enchanted candy canes are all part of an average day out with everyone's favorite nanny.

#MayMadness - both Mary Poppins & Star Wars were #booktomovie adaptations

#mayscavengerhunt
Mary Poppins - dog in it (Andrew & Willoughby), author from a different country (Australian-English), part of a series (8 total MP books)
Star Wars - star on cover (Carrier Fisher, Mark Hamilton), a character dies (Obi-Wan)

BeansPage I would be careful there because the Star Wars is actually a film to book adaptation not the other way around 😉😘 4y
Clwojick I love that Marry Poppins edition. 💝 A Star Wars is always a winner in my books 😉 4y
wanderinglynn @TheReadingMermaid Hm. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Well, it still fits the scavenger hunt prompts. 4y

BeansPage Sure does! You go girl!!! 😁 4y
BeansPage Also, I happen to have that trilogy myself. Have you read the other two adaptations? They are all pretty damn good 👍😃👍 4y
wanderinglynn @TheReadingMermaid I‘ve read conflicting things about which came first (novel or movie). The ultimately question—which came first! 😂 Also, there are some subtle differences. 4y
BeansPage Okay let me clear it up for you sweetie, the book was first published in May 1976 when a New Hope was still in production then just called Star Wars. Alan Dean Foster originally wrote the film to book adaptation but George Lucas was later given credit for it given the fact that he wrote the script for Star Wars the film. Then in late 1977 the film was finally finished and released. 4y
BeansPage I know there's been a lot of conflicting information over which came first. But true fans we got to stick together girl! The movie came first that is for sure and for certain 😘😘 4y
BeansPage And the subtle differences that you're noticing in the book is because it was written by Foster not by Lucas. When I first read the book I was like wait... what??? 😂😂😂 4y

#MayMadness #personalchallenge Week 1: today I‘m at the Olympic Lodge in Bremerton at a training course. This is the view off the building. And you can‘t quite see it in the photo, but the top left is the Puget Sound & the Navy shipyard where all big ships are, including a carrier.

BeansPage Whoa! Super cool! 4y
Clwojick 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4y
SW-T Gorgeous! Enjoy your trip 😊 4y

I am a little bit speechless. I really loved this book. After the first part was so different to the movie, that I didn't want to read all the other parts, the one was so cute. All the little stories and this time especially two stories about books. 😊 I loved the story about New Year's Eve and the story with the wise cat. 😍 #marybuddyread @ju.ca.no how did you like it? Tomorrow the next one?

ju.ca.no What lovely illustrations😊 I still have a few pages left but will finish it later and can also start the next one!! 😍😍 5y

I‘m starting the third Mary Poppins book for the #MaryBuddyRead with @Sarah83 a day early as I won‘t have much reading time tomorrow... our bathroom is being renovated, so there is a lot of noise and I have to shower at my cousin‘s apartment for the next week(s), one of my best friends is getting married tomorrow and I‘m going to a concert as well... busy day ahead, I already feel tired only thinking about it🙈

ephemeralwaltz Very busy day!! But also sounds like a lot of fun-enjoy!🎉🤗 5y
Sarah83 Sounds like a pretty busy day. 🙈 I understand, why you start reading it today. ☺️ 5y
ju.ca.no @ephemeralwaltz thank you😘 I‘m indeed much looking foward to it 😊 (except the no shower at home part, that it tedious) 5y
ju.ca.no @Sarah83 I also can‘t really wait, I‘ve enjoyed the last book so much😂 5y
Sarah83 This seems to be the right answer 😂 5y
