By Meredith VINE VOICE on June 4, 2013

I have a 10 year old who is IN LOVE with MLP and all it's fables. She loves to read up on each character and know all she can know about the episodes. I was over the moon when I saw this was coming soon and now that it is here, I know she will be thrilled to receive it for her birthday.

It is smaller than I anticipated, measuring only 8.5 x 6 inches. It is more of a handbook than a picture book, which is great by me! The colorful part of the image is a shiny dust jacket. Under it is the brown, faux bejeweled antique-looking cover.

The pages are all glossy and colorful.

Contents:
*Introduction
*Why My Little Pony?
*My Little Ponies
*Cutie Mark Crusaders
*Fellow Equestrians and Animal Friends
*The Dark Side
*The Elements of Harmony
*The Magical World of Equestria
*An Interview with Lauren Faust
*Chronicles of Friendship
*The Musical Pony
*Friendship Fanatics

There are very cool things that a real fan will love: Pre-production artwork! An Introduction by Lauren Faust the creator of the series! A complete list of characters and scenery! Episode Guide! Song Lyrics and MORE!

All of this is sure to make any fan feel like a super fan in no time. Highly recommended for MLP fans and fanatics of all ages, shapes and sizes! (Photos of the book uploaded!)

I wasn't expecting much from this when I ordered it, but what arrived was AMAZING. First, the blue part you see is a half dust Jacket, when removed it looks almost exactly like the actual book in the show. THe first part of the book is a recreation of the show book telling the story of the two sisters and how the mare in the moon came to be. After that is the character info which includes initial concept art and all kinds of details. Add to that summaries of all the episodes and information on places and a MAP. It is a bargain. My nine year old daughter received this on Thursday, I had a lot of things to get done and about two hours into cleaning the kitchen I realized the house was quiet -- you know, the something is probably wrong quiet? Nope, she had been curled up on the couch, TV off, game system off, reading this book. She is going cover to cover and is about halfway through it now. This is a SOLID hardcover with all the information anyone who loves this show would adore. I am recommending it to all my daughter's friends who like MLP:FiM as well as MY friends that adore the show. While a child can read it, even the adult fan will appreciate all the information in this

My Little Pony: The Elements of Harmony: Friendship is Magic: The Official Guidebook is an awesome book. The intros are tear jerking. Reading a foreward and Q&A by Lauren Faust is insightful and awesome. All of the details that they bring to us, with little bubbles of quotes, concept art and other things are indeed inspiring and makes you smile. The little facts you learn in the beginning making you wonder 'what could have been?'

All in all, if you're a brony or pegasister, know one, or are the parent of one--pick up this book today. You'll be 20% cooler in 10 seconds flat.

I have to say I am very impressed with this little book! It's informative, well-made, and looks good on any shelf.

First, I have to give props to the guys at Little, Brown and Company for making the book look so much like something you'd find at Twilight's library. The entire cover is exquisitely detailed with ornamented gold and jewels, not real or metallic of course, but still quite beautiful. Also, inside the cover is a broad spectrum of quotes taken out of the show, from the Mane Six to the Cutie Mark Crusaders and even a few background ponies. It was something I wasn't expecting, but was thrilled to see. The feel of it being a genuine Equestrian book is not limited to the cover. The book has a distinct feel of wanting to hide the fact that it's a human book, which is pretty cool when even Star Wars books feel like they were made on earth most of the time.

The sections in the book are well written and concise, so don't expect three or four pages detailing each character. But they provide a nice character sketch for the Mane Six, the Princesses, and many background ponies. Derpy is of course ignored completely except for a single image of her napping on a cloud, but that's not really an issue to me. Other sections include information dealing with the series' antagonists, as well as locations in Equestria.

A good chunk of the book is taken up by the episode synopses. I kind of appreciate this, as it is a nice little guide for people who are generally unfamiliar with the show. I can just flip to a section in the book when I'm showing the series to a newbie and they can quickly choose an episode that suits them. But for veteran fans like me, it's more or less wasted space. I still like to read the synopses once in a while, but they're not my main focus.
