lost in the lovely pages

"So Mary Poppins put on her white gloves and tucked her umbrella under her arm—not because it was raining but because it had such a beautiful handle that she couldn't possibly leave it at home. How could you leave your umbrella behind if it had a parrot's head for a handle?"

This question and many more are delighting me at every page turn of the wonderful book by P.L. Travers. I can't believe it has taken me this long to read the classic Mary Poppins story. Especially when it has such an incredibly, enchanting cover.

(chapter 2, page 16)

This Mary Poppins is very different from the Disney version. I would love to know your thoughts.
