Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cindy L. Carolan
Little Fur is an elf troll (half elf and half troll) who is a healer. She believes that in order to help humans rid themselves of violence and hurt, new seeds should be planted at every available opportunity. In doing so, the earth spirit will flow so strongly through the cities that humans will feel the earth magic and appreciate nature. In this story she is joined by Sorrow, a fox who only wishes to die but whose spirit keeps him alive nonetheless. The two must journey together with other friends to Underth (land of the trolls) to quell attempts by the Troll king to wreck havoc once again on earth. The pen-and-ink illustrations in the book are gorgeous; they are fairly spare in number but sufficient enough to keep readers in a state of anticipation for the next page turn. The hardback version of this book is stunning from both a visual and tactile perspective—a deep red flocked, almost velvet cover with a circular inset of Little Fur and Sorrow. This is the type of book every little girl imagines she would read in the library of a drafty old house in front of a fireplace. It is the second title in the "Little Fur" series. The author also wrote "The Gateway Trilogy" and "The Obernewtyn Chronicles." Recommended.
School Library Journal

Gr 4-6 - Isobelle Carmondy's sequel (Random, 2007) to The Legend of Little Furtakes listeners on the second adventure with Little Fur, a half-elf, half-troll girl, and her group of unlikely traveling companions as they embark on a dangerous quest given to them by the wise Sett Owl. Little Fur, who has the ability to heal animals, is joined by the faithful cat Ginger, an unenthusiastic and somewhat greedy rat, a pair of loyal ferrets, and a fox called Sorrow who only asks the great Sett Owl for the ability to die. The group is given the dangerous task of traveling to Unearth, the underground city of the wicked Troll King, who is to release a deadly sickness upon the world. This eco-fable with its good vs. evil plot will appeal to fantasy fans and animal lovers alike. The author's soft voice adds a magical flavor to the narration. Carmondy gives each character a distinctive voice, and although her Australian accent makes a few words difficult to understand, listeners will enjoy this audiobook.- Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY

Kirkus Reviews
Little Fur's quest to prevent the Troll King from destroying the earth spirit continues in this second book of the eco-fantasy series. Part elf and part troll, Little Fur lives in an ancient forest surrounded by urban blight. Dedicated to her mission of planting seeds and healing injured creatures, she seeks advice from Sett Owl and winds up on another harrowing journey. Her mismatched companions include two volunteer ferrets, a greedy rat, a loyal cat and a melancholy fox named Sorrow. Warned that someone will betray them, the wary pack descends beneath the city to Underth, the Troll King's forbidding subterranean stronghold. Determined to heal Sorrow's broken body and spirit, Little Fur follows the fox to the heart of danger, where they discover the Troll King's plan to unleash germ warfare on earth. Battling trolls and darkness, Little Fur must test the strength of her healing powers. Little Fur remains an inspiring heroine who proves that not "all things that are great are large." An environmentally friendly message packaged in page-turning adventure. (Fantasy. 8-11)
