I must have seen the movie so many times that it's impossible to read about Mary Poppins and not have Julia's delightful face pop into my mind. I know the songs by heart and I hum them constantly..!
However, the nanny in this novel wasn't so delightful. She was stern and a bit too vain for my taste. I was reading the book for the illustrations mostly and I also listened to the audiobook with the brilliant Sophie Thompson who captures the perfect tone for the infamous nanny as she is portrayed in the books. There were some stories that weren't mentioned in the film but the songs made up for this loss. Because ♪ a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down...♪
ahh julie..I simply cannot write a high enough praise for your class and amazing figure!
