This was my first time reading Travers and I didn't really know what to expect—and I guess I still don't, since the book, like Poppins, makes up the rules as it goes along; the author said she more or less wrote it without any plan, and it certainly doesn't have a plot or even a general goal. Instead it has a feeling: a very specific blend of silliness, comfort, and awe.

Mary is like a combination of different ideas a kid might have about parents, teachers, and gods: all-knowing, capricious but never in doubt, part of some bigger system that you don't understand, performing miracles but acting like they're normal, demanding absolute trust and giving you the world in return. But the occult levels of existence that she reveals are basically a kid's idea of how the world works, and you always know everything is as it should be; it's almost the exact opposite of the Alice books, where Wonderland is a totally separate place full of scary things that are a parody of the adult world. It's about infusing things in the real world with a sacred quality, while also making friends with them—and if you feel like "sacred" is too high-flown a word for this often extremely goofy book, I'll just point to the passage where the king of all animals (not a lion but a snake; also Mary's cousin) talks about how "to eat and be eaten are the same thing in the end .... We are all made of the same stuff .... Child and serpent, star and stone—all one."

The mortal characters don't get to do a whole lot besides being impressed by Mary, and the kids are mostly just along for the ride but there are a couple of good parts about what the kids are like on their own: one where the baby twins are worrying that they'll lose the ability to talk to animals, and one about a story that the older children have made up to tell to each other. There's also a lengthy passage about doing bad things on purpose and enjoying them, which doesn't really result in a lesson, it's just a thing that happens.

The running joke about Mary's vanity is interesting, because Travers goes out of her way to remind you that she's considered plain and maybe a bit weird-looking, so in a way this is cutting her down to human size a little. But also it's not out of character for deities to praise themselves, and it leads to a nice bit (told, surprisingly, from Mary's point of view) where she sees multiple reflections of herself and thinks there should be dozens of them because "The more Mary Poppins the better." I would have to agree. ( )

Mary Poppins... she sure is something else, huh ( )

The movie is definitely not the same as the book, this story wasn't quite as much fun as I'd hoped. ( )

It's been a long time. I enjoyed reading it aloud. M. P. herself was plenty prickly but not unbearable. Ooh but Mrs. Corry, the gingerbread baker, seems pretty hateful. I didn't remember much of this at all. The quotidian and the fantastic are well spun. ( )

I tried reading this with my oldest, but he got bored. It really doesn't help that the first adventure is Mary Poppins on her day out, without the kids. If we try again, I'll skip that chapter and go straight to the Laughing Gas chapter. ( )

But Jane and Michael were not taken in by that snap. For they could see in Mary Poppins's eyes something that, if she were anybody else but Mary Poppins, might have been described as tears.... (p. 194)
