About P. L. Travers

P.L. Travers was born in 1899 in Maryborough in Queensland, Australia and was one of three sisters.


She worked as a secretary, a dancer and an actress, but writing was P.L. Travers's real love, and for many years she was a journalist. It was while recuperating from a serious illness that she wrote Mary Poppins - "to while away the days, but also to put down something that had been in my mind for a long time", she said. She recieved an OBE in 1977, and died in 1996.

Our customer reviews

Mary Poppins is thought of in reference to so many things - so many things but the original source, which is, or course, the book. This book, so terribly different to the many and varied representations of it, is certainly the purest and most genuine. It is full of little adventures that will delight child readers and amuse their parents. I reccommend it wholeheartedly. It is sweet, funny, and of course kooky and cute. And the luxurious watercolour illustration on the front cover gives the book an extremely fresh feel.show more
