        The book is very well presented and very accurate in its transcription. I used the transcription straight into my midi editing software and the results were very pleasing indeed.
        The commentary used in the book is very informative and helps to set the atmosphere of this wonderful story written by Raymond Briggs.
        The price is very good value for money and I would strongly recommend this publication for both performance and as a great educational musical piece.
        The only downside of the publication is that the transcriptions on the pages are very small. Therefore you could not issue band members with a raw copy of the transcription as is. So a fair bit of preparation is needed before an orchestra could use the various parts.
        If there were downloadable midi files associated with the publication this would help tremendously and save countless hours in preparation time.
