• Little Golden Book's My Little Pony: Twilight Sparkle Best Aunt Ever Art Previewed at BookCon!

    One of the most exciting books to be coming out this year for the My Little Pony Franchise is Little Golden Book's My Little Pony: Twilight Sparkle Best Aunt Ever, written by Tallulah May and Illustrated by Zoe Persico. Well BookCon 2017 had a couple of Preview images being showcased at the con for everyone to see! Just look at that art style! Definitely feels like something fun is going to be found within these 24 pages!

    I know some—probably a lot—will point to The Art of My Little Pony: The Movie as the book they are most anticipating to come out this year. And they'd be justifiably correct.  That book is a collection of the concept and production art pieces which were created for My Little Pony: The Movie (2017). It directly appeals to the very large core group of the Brony community. However, what has me the most excited for the My Little Pony Little Golden Books coming out on August 29th, 2017 is who they are specifically targeted towards.

    The books are rated for children ages 2 – 5 years old. And I'm willing to bet some of the earliest memories they have are of them being tucked into bed and being read a Little Golden Book as a bedtime story. I know those are some of my earliest memories of my Mom and Dad. With the earliest one of my father being me sitting on his lap watching Captain Picard fight for Data's right to choose in one of the best episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. But the point I am trying to make is that for a lot of children, the earliest impressions they will have of the world are going to be of Little Golden Books. And nothing makes me happier than seeing My Little Pony become a part of that tradition.

    So what do you think of the art previewed for the book so far? And what are some of your memories involving the Little Golden Books? Be sure to discuss it after the break!
