Fluttershy loves animals and is very shy. But most ponies don't know that she has a secret talent: knitting! Princess Celestia is hosting an extreme art competition, and Fluttershy is determined to enter the contest with her knitted statue, incognito, just in case the judges hate her art. While at the competition, Fluttershy realizes that while not everyone will be pleased with her art, the ponies who matter most will love her and her talents no matter what.

Fluttershy provides a great example of standing up for yourself and having courage. Anyone who loves the My Little Pony series will enjoy these comic strip style books. The illustrations look just like the modern TV show and are bright and well done. The characters and storylines of My Little Pony always teach readers (or viewers) a great lesson on loving who you are and the power of friendship. This book is one in a series of six comic strip books, all of which are a fun addition to any library. Children who normally prefer to watch TV shows will love the fast pace and engaging comic book style of this series.
