This was definitely not the quality that I was expecting from the author. Whereas the few stories in it were okay, I found that the commentaries between them by Dumbledore were nothing more than a waste of paper that the author merely used in order to fill pages. I also thought that her adding herself into the story as a type of editor was just tacky. She didn't do it for the Harry Potter series, so why start now? It would have been much better using another made up character from the HP world.
Overall, it was a bit of a disappointing book and even though it was published for a good cause, the effort should have been much better in order to represent that cause.
