Mary Poppins is a magical nanny who sweeps into the Banks home on Cherry Tree Lane to take charge of the Banks children. She flies in on an umbrella, and departs when the children have learned enough lessons and promises to return whenever they need her. The first book in the popular series introduces the Banks family, consisting of Mr. Banks and Mrs. Banks and their children Jane, Michael, and baby twins John and Barbara. When the children’s nanny, Katie Nana, storms out in a huff, Mary Poppins arrives at their home, complete with her traveling carpetbag, blown in by a very strong wind. She accepts the job, and the children soon learn that their nanny although stern, and almost always cross, has a magical touch that makes her wonderful. In the end, Mary Poppins satisfied with the work she has done is once again carried away by the West wind.
