Alright but not memorable. I wish it had new illustrations instead of recycling them from other HP books.

Spring 2018:

I can see myself putting this on, and letting it sing and read throughout my whole house, as I'm putting up the tree and all the decorations this coming after-Thanksgiving weekend.
