The new movie Saving Mr. Banks is not a movie made from a single book exactly.  Rather it is a movie inspired by a series of good children's books, a great author and a fun family film rolled into one - based upon a magical character, namely - Mary Poppins.

The film, Saving Mr. Banks, is about the life of Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers and the journey of her children's books into the Disney movie -- Mary Poppins. Saving Mr. Banks is really more for the older set, but the original Travers books are still a treat for kids of all ages.  Mary Poppins is a magical nanny full of adventures.  There were actually eight different Mary Poppins written by P.L. Travers and seven are still in print and available at SCCLD including:
