Hiro Mashima has collected various stories he's created for his characters and they are anthologized here. Even if you are as ignorant of the characters and their world, you'll quickly get a context for everything and everyone. Juvia has a crush on Gray which is alluded to in the second story but then fleshed out more in 413 Days. The cat from the first story is an Exceed, a sort of pet cum familiar, and there's an adorable story about one of them getting lost and trying to find a way back to the guild. This story is apparently based on a Japanese television show but don't worry. You don't have to know this before reading. I enjoyed the story and it wasn't until I read the author's notes at the end of the manga that I understood the context.
In the end, I enjoyed this manga very much but I don't think I'll give it to my granddaughter. I think my son will enjoy it more. And now I'm curious to read some of the light novels Mashima has written.
Storyline is easy to follow and this is a standalone novel so I didn't have to read any other from this line.
You get a lot of content for the price. The art isn't bad (it's not stunning, but it's fun and easy on the eyes) and the characters stay pretty true to themselves.
Hope that worked because it's a two volume set. He says the stories have only been available online up til now so he was happy to get the book to add to his collection (I've ordered the second one as a Xmas gift for him as well).
I you like Manga this is a great example.
