Review: Mary Poppins in the Kitchen: A Cookery Book with a Story (Mary Poppins #8)

User Review  - Goodreads

Reading the original Mary Poppins made me realize I had read this as a kid over and over again. I always wanted to make the Welsh rarebit but my mom wouldn't let me. I have to find this book now. Read full review

Review: Mary Poppins in the Kitchen: A Cookery Book with a Story (Mary Poppins #8)

User Review  - Goodreads

Very gimmicky book. A cookery book with a story...except not really much of a story. For someone who didn't care for Disney's commercialism, this book reads like something she just threw together to market another Mary Poppins book without actually writing another book. Read full review
