The first four books featuring the world’s most beloved nanny, plus delightful bonus features!
Since the 1934 publication of Mary Poppins, stories of this magical nanny have delighted children and adults for generations. This collection includes the first four tales by P. L. Travers, illustrated by Mary Shepard: Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, and Mary Poppins in the Park.
Also including a foreword by Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked, who explores the significant differences between the book and movie versions, and an essay by P. L. Travers about the writing of Mary Poppins, this collection lets you travel with Mary on the east wind to Cherry Tree Lane in these stories that inspired films, a stage show, and young imaginations the world over.
“When Mary Poppins is about, her young charges can never tell where the real world merges into make-believe. Neither can the reader, and that is one of the hallmarks of good fantasy.” —The New York Times

Are you always helping picky eaters in your home? Is meal-time always a battle? Let the Dinner Fairy cast a spell on your kids so they don’t run the risk of Growing Down Instead of Up!
Emerson and Griffin hate dinner – they are fussy eaters that have much more fun away from the table. They’ll never eat their food despite Mom and Dad telling them how important it is to help them grow big and strong.
That’s until they receive a mysterious visit from the Dinner Fairy, who warns them:
“Little ones need food to grow and milk to drink from cups.
For every meal you DON’T eat well, you’ll grow DOWN instead of UP!”
Not convinced, they test her theory with disastrous results. What has the Dinner Fairy done and can they work out how to get themselves back to their real size?
Author Adrienne Rogers has turned her dinner time frustrations into a beautiful and hilarious rhyming picture book perfect for helping picky eaters consider being brave with food. Growing Down Instead of Up stands nicely alongside iconic books for picky eaters like Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss and bestseller My Magical Foods by Becky Cummings, with its different approach to helping fussy eaters.
Trying new foods and encouraging healthy eating for kids with a “I choose to try again” attitude is important in every home. So read Growing Down Instead of Up and bring peace and healthy eating to your dinner table.
