* RefugeeFromTVLand: ''Mary Poppins in the Park'' has a variation, in which three fairy-tale princes and their unicorn meet Jane and Michael. They claim to have a book about the people of Cherry Tree Lane, which they use as a PortalBook to the park once every generation (London time). Unfortunately, when most of the children the princes meet over the years become adults, they seem to forget meeting the trio.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the second chapter of the first book, "The Day Out", Mary Poppins expresses awe and amazement during her and the Match-Man's journey inside a chalk drawing. This noticeably differs from later stories, in which Mary Poppins reacts to fantastical occurrences as ordinary events for herself. "The Day Out" even gives her an expression of astonishment, "Strike me pink!", that she never exclaims during those other stories.
