In this cute My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic comic, Twilight Sparkle and the gang have started having horrible nightmares. Pinkie Pie decides to have a slumber party, because ponies can't have bad dreams at slumber parties. The ponies soon discover that you can have nightmares at slumber parties, and Rarity's nightmares carry her off to the moon! Twilight Sparkle and the rest of Rarity's friends go to Princesses Celestia and Luna to discover how to get their friend back. Luna, Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Spike have to journey to the moon to rescue their friend and stop the nightmares!
This was a cute comic. I felt all the characters were true to their cartoon counterparts. I thought the comic had good pacing was quite enjoyable. I feel both adult and child fans of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic will enjoy this story.

I requested a copy of this book because I knew my kids would love it and I was right. They loved it. I have two little girls, so My Little Pony is much loved and much discussed in our house.
I noticed a couple of things about this book that really made it a hit with my girls. First, the graphic novel format really is a brilliant way to deliver a story. There are lots of pictures, lots of dialogue, and no long sequences of boring descriptions or inward struggles by the characters. It isn't a terribly long book, so it can be read fairly quickly and keep a child's interest through the whole thing. The characters and their personalities remain true to the TV show, which is important to keep that consistency.
The plot itself is precisely what you would expect from My Little Pony. Nothing more, nothing less. It is sugary and sappy, with some light danger and a bit of age appropriate suspense/action. It is a little cheesy, but it works.
The illustrations are gorgeous. A lot of times, with these commercialized stories, I forget that someone had to create all the artwork, that a real person sat at their drawing table or computer for hours on end. Not all of the pictures are perfect, and some are a bit confusing, but the majority of the book is filled with beautifully rendered art.
