More than eighty years since we first met Mary Poppins, this children’s classic is still charming listeners and transporting new fans into the mysterious world of everyone’s favourite magical nanny.

The original and classic story is now available in all-new luxurious livery in time for the release of the 2018 Mary Poppins movie. Families can now also enjoy the story on the go or at bedtime with an enchanting audiobook beautifully read by the talented Olivia Colman.
