AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Mary Poppins takes two children through the chalk drawings on the pavement and into the story of King Cole and a Cat. In a battle of wits, facts and figures, both the children and King Cole learn that things aren't always what they seem and, sometimes, all it takes is a clever Cat to help you see the merry old soul within.
