NOTE: I listened to the Audible audio book.

Mary Poppins returns to check-in on her former wards. Seems like some of her lessons have gone unpracticed since she was last in the home. However, she quickly gets everybody back in to shape before disappearing again.

The first book in the series is still my favorite (the one which the movie is based on). This book (#2 in the series) was much different that I expected. It concentrated less on the children & Mary Poppins' relationships & more on the new characters that appear in this story. It was just ok.

Age recommendation: 8 & up

On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 5.
