Four tales of friendship and fun! Contains stories involving Granny and the Flim Flam brothers, Fluttershy and Iron Will, Rainbow Dash and Wonderbolt Spitfire, and Pinkie Pie! Collects issues #9–12.
I love the ponies, I think they are cute and each of them have fun personalities. This volume collected issues 9-12, which I have not read before, nor have I read the previous volumes/issues. I have watched all of the pony episodes though so I know about many of the characters that made cameos in these tales. We get four stories and almost all the ponies in this volume, all but Rarity who only has a very small part in these tales.
Granny and the Flim Flam Brothers is about family sticking together and was a lesson that everyone should read about all the time. Fluttershy helping others is the norm for her story, but it was done in an adorable way - with Iron Will a minotaur who is overly aggressive. Rainbow Dash's story was about finding your strengths and acknowledging that it is possible for great people or ponies, to have weaknesses as well. And lastly, Pinkie Pie's tale was about friendship and self control - her tale was the funniest, but it is Pinkie and she is always a spazz waiting for a good laugh.
The illustrations in this volume were all wonderful and vibrant and I think any My Little Pony lover will enjoy this compilation.
