P.L. Travers

Born Pamela Lyndon Travers in Queensland, Australia on 9 August, 1899, P.L. Travers is an Australian-born British author best known for creating the magical nanny, Mary Poppins. Having lived most of her life in England, her children’s books have a quintessential, magical charm that is at odds with her mysterious and prickly reputation.

A huge fan of fairy tales and animals, she published the first Mary Poppins book in 1934 and followed this with seven more stories, culminating in 1988’s Mary Poppins and the House Next Door. The original story was adapted into a classic film by Walt Disney starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, while it has recently been announced that Emily Blunt will be starring in a belated sequel. P.L. Travers was made an OBE in 1934 and died in London on 23 April, 1996.
