Sophie Thompson is truly star quality in her reading of Travers's classic children's book. Number Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane is never the same after the arrival of the magical nanny. Thompson captures the many enchanting characters, be they man, woman, child or beast. Her portrayal of Mary Poppins embraces all aspects of her personality: her vanity, curtness, irascibility, and most of all, her charm. Children and adults of all ages will enjoy this performance.
