The Adventures of Mary Poppins

The theme for th 2010 Christmas exhibit was chosen from selected scenes of the series of children’s books written by P. L. (Pamela Lyndon) Travers and illustrated by Mary Shepard. Travers was an Australian novelist, actress and journalist, but she was most remembered for her series of children’s novels about the magical Mary Poppins. 

Christmas with Mary Poppins

The interpretation was centered on that English Nanny’s adventures with the Banks children. Their encounters took place over a series of eight books published between 1934 and 1988. Nothing was really ever the same once Poppins arrived!
