The Red Pony
The Red Pony - John Steinbeck My spouse heard a piece of music on the radio by Aaron Copeland that had apparently been composed for a movie version of Steinbeck's novella. Well, I'd never heard of this book, so naturally, when I discovered my library had a copy I could snag, I downloaded it.

Basically, this is a series of four short stories with a common set of characters. The main character is a 10-year old boy, Jody Tiflin, who lives on a ranch in the Salinas Valley in California, with his father, a rather stern disciplinarian named Carl, his mother, and a ranch hand, Billy Buck, a grizzled old character with a knack for dealing with horses.

The first story involves a red pony for which Jody is supposed to learn to care. On the second story, Jody interacts with a drifter. The third story has another pony in it, or rather a pregnant mare. I've already forgotten the fourth. I dunno, this book didn't do much for me (maybe 2½ *s?).

A nice adaptation of the MLP episode. As with any of the MLP stories, this one has some good messages about friendship and having fun. The writing is well-done and there is a nice flow to the story. 

Nice pictures. This one is especially fun because of all of the costumes.

My Little Pony: Friends Forever Volume 4 (My Little Pony Friends Forever Tp) - Bobby Curnow,Jeremy Whitley

Overall, I liked the stories in this book better than some of the previous volumes. As with the other books in the series, I preferred the artwork that was more consistent with the show. Brenda Hickey and Jenn Blake had the best artwork in my opinion (sorry, Agnes Garbowska). 

I also think Jeremy Whitley and Bobby Curnow did a good job capturing the characters in the books. I could definitely see any of these stories happening in the show and the characters' reactions felt true to form. Some of the other stories in previous books seemed out of character, but I think all of these stick pretty closely to the show. 

Good graphic novel for fans of My Little Pony.

My Little Pony: Friends Forever, Vol. 3 - Christina Rice,Tony Fleecs,Agnes Garbowska,Brenda Hickey,Jay P. Fosgitt,Amy Mebberson,Ted Anderson,Barbara Kesel

Same set-up as the first two book. Four stories that feature one (or two) of the Mane Six (Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie) as well as a side character (Iron Will, Spitfire). This one also included a story about Granny Smith and the Flim Flam Brothers, which I enjoyed. As much as I love the Mane Six, sometimes it's nice to see what the other characters are up to. 

As with the other books, I prefer the art styles that are similar to the show (Tony Fleecs) and was really thrown off by the artists that used there own style for the characters (Jay Fosgitt's hardly even look like the characters and it drove me nuts). 

Good stories, I liked the variety. Overall, another nice collection of stories for Pony fans.

My Little Pony: Friends Forever Volume 2 - Tony Fleecs,Thom Zahler,Jeremy Whitley,Agnes Garbowska,Katie Cook

This book is pretty similar in style to the first volume of the series. It consists of four friendship stories featuring various characters in the My Little Pony universe. In this one, each story includes one (or more) of the Mane Six (Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Apple Jack, and Rarity) as well as a side character (Zecora, Trixie, and Princess Luna).

I feel pretty much the same about this volume as I did about the first. Overall, it's good. I prefer the comics that look more like the show (Tony Fleecs) rather than those that have their own style (Agnes Garbowska). There are a few weird things that seem inconsistent with the show (Rarity and Applejack really just stole a gyro-flyer!?). But the stories were all entertaining.

Good for MLP fans that enjoy graphic novels.
