Reviews - What do customers think about Mary Poppins Opens the Door (Odyssey Classics)?

She's Baaack  Sep 2, 2007
This is the third book in the delightful Mary Poppins series. As the story opens it is Guy Fawkes Day and the Banks children are hoping to be able to celebrate in style but unfortunately their father is in a foul mood and their mother is struggling to manage the household. Nothing has gone right in the Banks house in a long time....not since Mary Poppins left. While at the park though she returns, floating down from the sky and suddenly Father is happier, Mother is able to manage the house and the children discover that they are having fun again as they, and their reader, gone on a series of magical adventures over the next few weeks.

The reader of this series is transportated by these stories in more ways than one, besides the imaginative stories themselves the forward to this one with it's references to the British holiday of Guy Fawkes Day and it's wartime nonobservance make it clear from the beginning that these stories are about another place and time.

The reading level of this volume is listed as 5th grade with an interest level from 8 to 12. Today schools typically assign much more sophisticated stories to 5th graders and Mary Poppins would definitely not be on the reading lists for the middle school set (11 and 12 year olds). More is the pity since this nonthreatening, lighthearted story is just the thing to convince a child that reading can be FUN!
funny and exciting  Jan 25, 2007
This is the third book in the Mary Poppins series. It's about all the adventures that the Banks children have with their nanny. In one adventure they go to the park and see a lady selling peppermint stick horses. They buy some and ride off into the sky! You never know what type of adventure Mary Poppins has in store for the kids!
A Good but not Great book  Dec 2, 2001
This book is an exciting book, but you have to get into it before it becomes exciting. The book is very long and the chapers are about 25 pages each. This book should be for good readers (in 5th grade). P.L. Travers made a very good book though. Mary Poppins will always be my favorite character.
Not the best,but still quite good.  Mar 31, 2000
This is (to my knowledge) the third Mary Poppins book. It would have been 5 stars,but Travers doesn't seem to think of any new plots,just twists on the same ones. Still, it has very good story lines. There is the usual relitive of Mary, an old woman selling some magic item in the park. The object makes the 5 children and Mary fly home after getting Mrs.Banks some supplies. There is thev outing at bedtime where Mary has gone out - andis a geust of honor along with Jane and Michael. This does not have a bad day, but it has Mary coming and going in unusual ways. Mary Poppins is a bit more strict than in the movie,but still enjoyable. P.L. Travers seems to haver written this as the last book, but there are more after this. Ther5e are five children, not two. You should read the books in the order they were written to get an idea about these books. This is in the top ten on my must-read list. It is fantastic!
an unforgetable book  Feb 12, 2000
Marry poppins brings me to a totally different and fantastic world that I can never imagine
