  • Mary Poppins - Original Version

    P. L. Travers, Mary Shepard, Sam Sloan

    Paperback (Ishi Press, Nov. 28, 2019)
    You will not be able to find this exact book in any book store and probably not in any public library because it has been banned. Part of the reason for being banned you will find in the drawing of the compass and the text on page 61 when Jane says, ";I believe we are in China."; and soon the old man touches his head to the ground. None of this is to be found in the book available in the public libraries. It has been banned because of the charge of ethnic stereotyping. The book you will find in public libraries will say "Bad Tuesday (revised version)"; and it will have other copyright dates after 1934. It was first published in London in 1934. After the original book was banned in some public libraries, the author P. L. Travers was forced to rewrite it. This was because of Chapter 6 Bad Tuesday. This chapter was revised and the drawings redone by the author P. L. Travers.
