This book was generously donated by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This book is a collection of six short stories. Each one focuses on one of the ponies (Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Apple Jack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie). The whole gang does not make an appearance in all of the stories. In each story, one of the ponies learns about the importance of friendship.
I am a big fan of The Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic television show. I discovered the show when I was sick at the beginning of this year, and I became addicted to the singing and the adorable-ness. The ponies between the pages of this book act the same as the ponies on the television show, which made me happy. Sometimes when cartoons are translated to the written page, they suddenly act differently. I was a bit disappointed that the whole gang was not in all of the stories. Each individual story was very adorable; however, they were a bit predictable. My favorite story was the Pinkie Pie tale; however, that is not surprising, because I am a Pinkie Pie fan. Although any pony fan will enjoy these stories, I feel that these stories are best for the younger pony fan set.
I give this book 3 out of 5 kitties.
