Mary Poppins (Audio Cassette)
Read by Sophie Thompson
Three cassettes / 3 hours 49 mins.
Mary Poppins is like no other nanny the four Banks children have ever seen. She whirls into their home and "spit-spot", she works her inimitable brand of magic to make even the bland seem extraordinary. An endless source of fascinating adventure, she slides up the banister, produces an endless array of tricks from her empty carpetbag, and ensures their lives will never be the same.
