Barnes and Noble lists on their website a book entitled “My Little Pony: the Elements of Harmony: The Friendship Is Magic Official Handbook” without picture but with a release date of April 2, 2013. Thanks to Equestria Daily for the heads-up—you may be interested in the link to the actual page.
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication date: 4/2/2013
Age range: 12 – 18 Years
With 144 pages (which happens to be 12²—probably significant), it seems a different category of book than the usual comics and coloring books, and the age rage of 12–18 is promising too. Are you excited? Because I’m excited!
