A wisp of a story with recipes, By Mark Newbold

This is a perfect beginners cookbook/gift for a child that's a major Mary Poppins fan, otherwise there are many other children's cookbooks that would serve this purpose better. The recipes are decent, a bit too British for most American kids tastes however. That is an issue with the audience and not the book obviously.For collectors of P.L. Travers writings you will want this, it is but a pale shadow of the series. But any work by Travers is a quirky cause for fun, enjoy it for what it is.
Fun story and decent recipes, By Lena

My 10-years daughter summed it up perfectly:'Mom, you get 3 for one in this book:-New story about Mary Poppins,- A lot of yummy recipes,- And we can spend time together, preparing the stuff'Now, after the quote ended... Both of us probably will never get to really preparing at least third of the recipes, as a little bit too British for our tastes. Still, it was fun to read them and choose the one that we'd like to try. And, as always, both of us had fun reading one more story about Mary Poppins.Recommended: your collection of Mary Poppins books would not be complete without this one.
