Aunt Sass

by P. L. Travers

Aunt Sass Synopsis

Published for the first time, here are three holiday tales by the author of Mary Poppins--a gift for all ages. P.L. Travers wrote with a signature blend of sugar and spice; her characters, including Mary Poppins, are endearing, outsized, and cozy. Her talent for capturing the perspective of children shines through Aunt Sass Christmas Stories. Each of the stories in this book was written as a holiday gift, sent to her friends and family and never published. Now her millions of readers and generations of filmgoers will recognize how she used her life story to inform her fiction. Whether it is Aunt Sass herself--who Travers admits is partly her inspiration for Poppins--or the Chinese cook whose "e;heathen"e; ways show the narrator the path to salvation, or the crass ex-jockey whose life work is not at all what it appears, the characters are unforgettable.
