With the announcement last month of the June 2013 release of  The Elements Of Harmony and now with the news that New York City publisher Little, Brown and Company will be releasing several new My Little Pony books, ponies will be trotting in circles with anticipation.

First up for release in September 2014 is the new Emily Hughes written, My Little Pony: The Cutie Mark Crusaders Doodle Book.  At 128 pages and for those age six or older, this new doodle book sees Apple Bloom, Scootaloo, and Sweetie Belle as the Cutie Mark Crusaders. They’re all school-age ponies eager to discover their special talents and earn their Cutie Marks. The Crusaders Doodle Book is a fun and creative book where you can attend school with the trio, help the ponies design crusader capes, decorate their clubhouse, and try out different talents.

While the artwork above is not final at this time, the book’s ISBN is: 978-0-316-24906-5 and it’s suggested retail price at this time is $13.00 U.S. and $14.00 in Canada.

Also in September, Little, Brown and Company will release a new story volume by New York City children’s writer, Oliva London. My Little Pony: Welcome To Crystal Empire!  Crystal Empire will see Twilight Sparkle touring Crystal Empire with her brother and sister-in-law. Twilight will learn about what happened to it in the past. She will also attend the Crystal Faire, meet lots of Crystal Ponies, and get to stay in a special room in the castle with her very own library! Crystal Empire will be fully illustrated with vivid brand artwork and images from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

Crystal Empire has a suggested retail price of $4.99 and $5.50 in Canada. Crystal Empire will be 24 pages and will include a fun post out postcard inside.
