Promoting this one for a friend of mine -- The Seven Sisters is a story by Alan Loewen that ought to sound familiar to old-school MLP fans. A young, brave, and clever girl finds herself in another world, one where she meets seven magical ponies and ends up helping them find out just who they really are, and what happened to them, with plenty of laughs and thrills along the way.

I can't lie, this is heavily inspired by the first few TV specials and episodes of the original My Little Pony, but done in the fashion of old-school fantasy. Think the Narnia tales, or Baum's Oz books (and like both those series this started as oral stories told to children), or Stoddard's High House. The Arthurian mythos gets used, the old classical version of it; and the story has more than enough surprises for anyone who expects this to be just some re-tread. There are also some references to old-school fantasy that will bring a smile to anyone who recognizes them (like the 'Wood Between The Worlds').

This is not something that will only appeal to MLP fans; you don't even need to watch or like the show to enjoy this story, but if you do you may recognize some references. The seven sisters will be sort-of familiar, as will the young human lady who aids them; there's a small dragon who doesn't act much at all like Spike, he's more of an actual dragon; and we meet three rather clueless witches as 'villains' who will definitely remind you of a certain someone from the My Little Pony movie -- but again, they are NOT the same!

It also has some very good art by DA's own JordanGreywolf, a talented artist; check out that link if you want to see for yourself!

If you like either the original My Little Pony or the current My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you'll like this.

If you like the aforementioned classical fantasy, Lewis and Baum and Stoddard and The Hobbit, you'll like this.

If you want a fantasy that can be read by younger kids without getting twisted or brutal and that isn't afrad to take it for granted that kids can think and can be spoken to, you'll like this.

It is a good book and it is worth purchasing.

Thanks for reading.
