In a Fox Called Sorrow, the adventures continue for Little Fur, the half elf, half troll girl who heals animals in a magical grove in the heart of a big city. When Little Fur discovers that the Troll King is plotting against the earth spirit that binds all living things, she sets off on a new adventure with a set of unlikely companions: the faithful cat Ginger, a reluctant rat, a pair of ferrets, and a mysterious fox called Sorrow who believes their quest is doomed. Can someone as small as Little Fur prove him wrong? Absolutely! And how she does it is as rich a tale as we've come to expect from author Isobelle Carmody.

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, NYCopyright 2007 Reed Business Information
