PRAISE FOR FROM ALL OF US TO ALL OF YOU: THE DISNEY CHRISTMAS CARD

There are ordinary Christmas cards, and then there are Disney Christmas cards.--Reader's Digest
PRAISE FOR PRACTICALLY POPPINS IN EVERY WAYThis handsome hardcover is officially a tie-in book for the new Disney release Mary Poppins Returns, but in truth it is more. Prolific Disneyphile Kurtti has taken the opportunity to profile not only author P. L. Travers but several of the great talents who made the 1964 movie so great. He has also called on a number of fellow Disney experts like Jim Fanning (who discusses a TV adaptation from the 1950s starring Mary Wickes), Greg Ehrbar (whose specialty is soundtrack albums), Disney artwork curator Fox Carney, and Disney scholars Paula Sigman Lowery and Brian Sibley. You'll also read appreciations of the Sherman Brothers, an interview with Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell, and thoughts from other members of the current film's creative team, beginning with director Rob Marshall. Practically Poppins goes above and beyond the mandate of a movie tie-in to become a valuable book for any Mary Poppins fan.--Leonard Maltin, film critic and historian
