Revue de presse

Praise for the Mary Poppins series:
 
"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
 
"There is an extraordinary charm about these books . . . They are whimsical, sentimental [and] also funny, imaginative, poetical and genuinely creative."--The New York Evening Post
 
"Like all great children's classics, Mary Poppins is frightening and sad as well as magic and very funny" Observer
 
"Absolutely alive, and aglint with magic" Walter de la Mare
 
"Mary Poppins is the Good Fairy, whom we are all seeking" Times Literary Supplement
 
"They are, outside of the work of Lewis Carroll, Tolkien, and T. H. White, the most distinguished poetic literature ever written for children. (The first book, “Mary Poppins,” is terrific, but “Mary Poppins Comes Back” and “Mary Poppins in the Park” are even better.)" – Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 array of tricks from her seemingly empty carpetbag, and ensures the Banks’ lives will never be the same.

“When Mary Poppins is about, her young charges can never tell where the real world merges into make-believe. Neither can the reader–and this is one of the hallmarks of good fantasy.” – The New York Times

“Delightful nonsense that defies an age boundary of appreciation.” — Booklist

3.0 étoiles sur 5 La plus connue des nounous 15 juin 2010
Par Veilleur TOP 100 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Si on doit citer le nom d'une nounou dans la littérature de jeunesse, il y a fort à parier qu'à un moment ou un autre, on citera celui de Mary Poppins. C'est dire si le personnage créé par Pamela Lyndon Travers est resté populaire dans les mémoires anglo-saxonnes à compter de la parution du premier recueil en 1924, et que cette notoriété s'étendra au monde entier avec un film du même nom qui reste un des grands chefs d'œuvre de Walt Disney. Le film a sans doute donné à Mary Poppins une allure plus pimpante et agréable de celle qu'elle peut avoir dans le livre où elle ne s'embarrasse pas avec une sévérité distante qui est très "pince-sans rire". Ce premier recueil nous place le personnage avec des épisodes qui restent assez cocasses et que l'on retrouve en partie dans le film de Disney : l'arrivée au vent d'Est et le départ au vent d'Ouest, le gaz hilarant, le voyage dans le tableau de craie, le dialogue avec le chien. Ils sont simplement mis différemment en contexte. J'ai beaucoup moins accroché aux épisodes comme celui de la vache dansante, qui font appel à certain esprit de "non-sens" propre aux Anglais et qui sont en droite ligne d'œuvre comme "Les aventures d'Alice au pays des merveilles".

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a classic - almost 27 juin 2009
Par Kathy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Reading the books that I loved as a child was wonderful - until I realized that it had been edited to make it more socially acceptable. The chapter called "Bad Tuesday" involves a magical compass that transports the characters all over the world. The original work used the author's vision of what the people would be like, and had used some pretty offensive stereotypes of the time. But the altered version completely changed the story, not only using animals instead of people, but changing even the storyline. Would have liked to be able to see the original work also, or at least been warned that the newer version was altered to that extent.

The entire Mary Poppins book series by the wonderful P.L. Travers is fantastic. I'm so glad to see they have finally arrived in hardcover with the original covers. No, this is not the sugary Disney movie--but this, the original story, will take your breath away with its magic and wonder. Give it a try. I think if you take these stories for what they are you will appreciate the wit and the adventure.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you want to find Cherry-Tree Lane... 29 septembre 2001
Par Marc Ruby™ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have to admit that I cannot completely explain the attraction of Pamela Travers' tale of Mary Poppins, nanny extraordinaire. But 48 years later, and Julie Andrews notwithstanding, I still found myself nodding and smiling as I read the book. Strange things just happen around Mary. You can wander into paintings and travel the world with a magic compass. Laughter makes you fly and the animals in the zoo will celebrate your birthday if you're nice. All at Mary Poppins' whimsy.
Growing up in the U.S., with no concept of what a nanny was, I still loved her right away. What is odd about this is that she actually isn't all that likable. She is quite vain and very, very bossy. She says 'no' a lot, and rarely stops to explain herself or reveal her secrets. Yet somehow you know that she will never let you down and she always will do what she says. Young Jane and Michael (and the even younger twins) couldn't ask for a better guide and protector. In a family where the father is most often at work 'in the city' and the mother is loving but a trifle inept, Mary is the glue that keeps things working together.
The book is actually a series of short tales of a fantastical nature. Sometimes the tale contains the requisite grain of wisdom and sometimes it is just silly fun. Perhaps the willingness to be light hearted is what charms young listeners. In addition to those already mentioned, there is the tale of the dancing cow, and a touching explanation of why we cannot talk to birds. Even though the book is quite readable for an 8 or nine year old, it is really best for being read to children. The adventures should be appealing to almost any child and the pen and ink sketches are a delight to look at.
If you are considering buying a reprint edition, there is, another reason why the book is best read out loud by a parent. In 1934, when the it was originally published, a certain amount of cultural insensitivity was common, and while it did harm, it was not really intended to. In one story, 'Bad Tuesday,' the children travel the world to meet Eskimos, Chinese, Native Americans and Blacks. While all these people are stereotyped, the description of the Black Africans is atrocious. People of color will find it quite offensive. Thanks heavens, in the Odyssey Classics edition this has been remedied. It is the latter I recommend.
It is a relief that there are publishers who understand the value of a wonderful story and will take the appropriate steps to keep it accessible. Mary Poppins teaches us all that wonder lies behind even the most mundane things. I expect I will be right there with Michael and Jane waiting for our magical nanny to return.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Will the Real Mary Please Stand Up 28 décembre 2001
Par Wendy Kaplan - Publié sur Amazon.com

Who WAS Mary Poppins, anyway? Well, as one who grew up with P.L. Travers' fabulous books, I can tell you who she was not. She did not give medicine with a spoonful of sugar, she was not a nauseatingly sweet airhead with an umbrella, and--guess what--she was NOT A NICE PERSON!
Which is exactly why I and my friends loved her. Other reviewers have found all kinds of hidden meanings, from satanism to British racism, to describe this and the other Mary Poppins books, probably because of the shock of finding that the real thing has so much more depth than the sickening movie version.
As a child in the 50s, I had no notion of British sensibilities or history, no clue about so-called satanism, and my sweet little child mind was ripe for all kinds of dire cult messages. But somehow, what I gleaned from these books was the best kind of adventure: an adult who wasn't really a parent, wasn't really a teacher, was definitely in charge--and yet strange magical things constantly happened in her presence. There were lessons to be learned: if Jane and Michael, the older children, misbehaved, the magic went awry. Badly awry. There was danger. There were consequences to their actions. Have a tantrum, and you just might wind up on the wrong end of an antique plate--trapped inside with no way out. Be rude to adults and other children, and your nice little world will change in ways you don't want to know about. But always, in the end, Mary Poppins was there to save the day without saying "I told you so." She was what so many modern children sorely lack: a strong parent figure. There was no spoiling, no giving in to whining demands (who would dare whine at Mary Poppins anyway?), and no indulgence. But there was also love and protection and security.
Is it wrong to expose today's children to literature such as this that may be politically incorrect? That is a debate that is larger than this review. I can only say from experience that even as a child, I took these books for what they were: fiction. And I loved them. Give me my nasty, vain, pompous REAL Mary Poppins any day of the week. In my view, she wears well. Very, very, well.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Original Mary 17 mai 2002
Par Mark Baker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Katie Nana has left the Bank family in need of a new nanny. But before they know it, a woman blows in on the East Wind. Literally. She takes the position of caring for the four children, Jane, Michael, and the twins John and Barbara. But with her extremely prim and proper attitude comes magical adventures. A day in the park, having tea, running errands, and even Christmas shopping can turn into an adventure when Mary's around. And the kids love it.
This most decidedly is not the Disney Mary Poppins. Disney toned her down significantly for his movie, making her heart easier to see. Still, it's there if you look closely in the book. I had forgotten just how hard it is to see at times behind Mary's outward appearance and actions. Still, the kids come to love her because they know where they really stand.
As with all books in the series, this one is a series of adventures. Each chapter tells it's own story, each story it's own fun, magical adventure.
Those looking for Disney's Mary will be greatly disappointed. But anyone looking for a fun series of adventures will find a woman who does care for those around her, even if it's not always super obvious.
