Who is Little Fur? Why, she's a half elf, half troll, as tall as a three-year-old human child, with slanted green eyes, wild red hair that brambles about her pointed ears, and bare, broad, four-toed feet. Little Fur loves and tends to the Old Ones, the seven ancient trees that protect her home, a small, magical wilderness nestled magically in a park in the midst of a large, bustling human city. When she learns that evil forces are out to destroy her beloved trees, the intrepid halfling must embark on an ambitious and dangerous journey into the human world and down into an ancient cut in the earth, in search of a way to save not only the Old Ones, but the Earth Spirit itself. Geared to young middle-grade readers who are, like our troll heroine, still innocent and natural champions of our earth, Little Fur is an eco-fantasy as wise and fey as it is adventurous and suspenseful.

Review:

When she learns of an evil plot to destroy the world's trees, Little Fur, half-elf, half-troll girl, vows to save her own magical forest, but soon is embroiled on a quest to save the earth spirit itself. This tiny healer does not set out to be a heroine, but her steadfast determination and loyal heart sets her on that path in spite of her quiet, almost timid ways. Along with her crow and cat companions, red-headed Little Fur wends her way from comforting greenspaces to alarming city streets. Since her feet must never leave the ground (otherwise she would lose touch with the flow of earth magic), Little Fur’s route is meandering, long, and fraught with the danger of humans, trolls, and other nefarious creatures. In spite of it all, she finally approaches the chasm where earth’s Old Ones supposedly dwell. Can this tiny Halfling do what no others have been able to do and save the earth spirit?

Isobelle Carmody's enchanting though moralistic eco-fantasy will delight those who love to lose themselves in tales of elves, brownies, and Hobbits. Although Little Fur is somewhat lacking in humor, the elf-troll-eye view of humans is entertaining and astute, and the adventure in is in the classic, satisfying, good versus evil vein. --Emilie Coulter
