      Really thick book full of all the best and well known carols as well as some of the lesser known ones. A good mix of modern, traditional and jazzy tunes.
      Would be good if the level of pieces varied a bit more....easy through to intermediate.

      Good quality print and binding.
      Unlike the Film Book, which is consistently intermediate, the Christmas Book has very inconsistent difficulty levels with several pieces I found too difficult.

      Very fast delivery - in time for last minute Christmas purchase. My daughter is enjoying the book, she thinks its on the easy side of Intermediate.

      I was a bit disappointed in this book. I have had several of the other books in this series and the arrangements in this one were very basic.

      Well it does what it says on the cover, and I can't fault the music or the printing, but what a lousy format! The book is stiff spined, and the spine really needs to be 'broken' in order for it to stand on the piano so you can see the music. Only a matter of time before it falls apart I reckon, about six months or so. What a shame, spiral bound would have been much more user friendly, and this has put me off any others in this series.

      I was pleasantly surprised at the speed and efficeicy with which you dispatched my order. The book is excellent and already well-used. When I want a new music book again I will try you first.

      I wanted a selection with a bit of everything just to sit and play to feel Christmassy at home - and this has it. All very playable arrangements - on the easy side of "intermediate".

      most of the music was disappointingly simple, though it is not classified as'easy'. a waste of money unfortunately

      A great book with lots of favourites and some that i have never heard of before but very much enjoyed playing. There is enough music in this book for plenty of Christmas's.

      An excellent book for advanced pianists, with lovely arrangements of more traditional and popular carols. The book is quite expensive, but well worth it I feel!

      Excellent book, definitely worth getting! Songs range from "Fairytale of Newyork" to "Away in Manger". Not too difficult either.
