Just What I Was Looking For!!! Better Than Expected!
One of my piano students loves this movie (I do too!), and this is the best beginner book I've found in a long time! I played it all the way through and, even though it is easy and for beginners, it sounds just like it should, interesting and full. I'm so amazed. He has only been taking piano for a few months (he's in Piano Adventures Level 2A), so we're taking this in small bites (this is not your primer level 5-finger melody), and he's very enthusiastic because it sounds just like it should.

Pitched at the right level
It's very good for beginners who are looking at more challenging pieces to play as their skill develops.

Though I am a beg./int. player, the arrangements left me feeling a little flat. It's fine for beginners, but personally, it left much to be desired. Look for a book for piano and vocal if you like to sing along. I also bought Mary Poppins and Annie which I enjoy.

This book was a lot of fun to play from. It's very simple music, I'd agree with the publisher in it being Easy Piano. I enjoy singing and playing "The Lonley Goatherd" and "So Long, Farewell" because the music is simple, yet sounds like the movie. I have been playing for several years, and would reccomend this for Early Intermediate students. It has no large jumps or tricky chords to be worried about, just the basics. The "look inside" is helpful, and I'd say that's a pretty good representation of the music. Other musical books I own and would reccomend are: Wizard of Oz (Easy Piano) Annie (Easy Piano)

Buy this Music!!!!!!!!!!
This sheet music was excellent! Not only did my students love it, we actually put on a production of the play using the sheet music!
