Having watched Saving Mr Banks and reading up a little about P L Travers I was aware that the books were different and I was keen to read them. Then as I read further I felt more and more unsettled with some of the concepts and the darkness coming through. None the less Mary, Jane, Michael, and Bert all go on an adventure through a drawing made of chalk by Bert. Uncle Albert is sat up in the air towards the ceiling, he explains that when his birthday falls on a Friday, as it does today, and he laughs, which he does very often, then he gets so filled with laughing gas that he floats, and he can’t get down until he thinks of something serious or sad, or when his birthday ends at midnight!

As Travers explains in her introduction to Mary Poppins in the Park, "She cannot forever arrive and depart. She toured Australia and New Zealand with a Shakespearean touring company before leaving for England in 1924. At the end of each adventure, Micheal (mostly) ask Mary about these adventures ; Mary Poppins would pretend she had no idea what he was talking about.

On a walk with Mary in the park, Mary tells him to pick up something shiny on the ground, he does and it is a compass.
