Mary Poppins Opens the Door

Finished Mary Poppins Opens the Door by P. L. Travers. This is the third, and by far the most magical and surreal book, in her Mary Poppins series. Mary re-appears in the last of the fireworks on Guy Fawkes Day. The children and especially Mrs. Banks are happy to have Mary back. I've finally gotten used to Mary's terse way of speaking and her complete denial that their magical adventures occur. The children live in awe and sometimes fear of her sharp tongue, but they love her dearly. What I'll never get used to is her leaving. Again and again.
