Eager Bronies — and, you know, actual children — still have several months to wait before new episodes of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic return to The Hub. Luckily, a slew of new Pony titles being released this spring, summer, and fall should help make time fly.

Three of these books — Meet the Ponies of Ponyville, Welcome to Equestria, and Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell — hit stores today, while three more are slated for later this year. The full-color original picture book Under the Sparkling Sea, out April 23, features breathtaking illustrations by artist Mary Jane Begin and a journey to Aquastria, an all-new underwater world. The Elements of Harmony (June) serves as a guide to My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, complete with a forward by creator Lauren Faust. And finally, the Mini Pony Collector’s Guide (October) is a must for any avid Pony pack rat — especially since it comes with an exclusive mini figurine.

We’ve got exclusive images from the new books, as well as the punch-out trading card that comes with Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell (pictured above). Want to see them all? Hoof it on over to our gallery where you can use a magnifier to check out some of the detail.
