AUNT SASS

599.00

In the 1940s P. L. Travers wrote three stories which she gave as Christmas gifts to friends. One was ‘Aunt Sass’ based on Travers’s great aunt – the real-life inspiration for Mary Poppins. Now for the first time they are available to a wider readership. Printed on board with beautiful illustrations this will be the perfect gift book for Christmas.

Friends come in many guises. In these autobiographical stories three characters – an eccentric great aunt a Chinese cook and a foul-mouthed ex-jockey – assert a lifelong influence on the narrator as she looks back over her childhood. Much like Mary Poppins each comes into the child’s life just when she needs them most. And each however unlikely becomes a friend and a champion to the young girl.

Charming tender and moving these stories which were given to the author’s friends as Christmas gifts contain all the hallmarks you’d expect from such a magical writer. And best of all you will meet the woman who was the inspiration for Mary Poppins.
