Little Fur: The Legend Begins, by Isobelle Carmody, is the story of Little Fur. She's half troll, half elf and as tall as a three-year-old child. Little Fur lives in a magical wilderness hidden within an ancient city, caring for small animals and for seven ancient trees called the Old Ones. But when news that her beloved trees are in danger reaches Little Fur, she and her animal friends decide to go on a dangerous quest into the human world to save them.
This book was filled with suspenseful chapter endings and cliffhangers. Little Fur is an unlikely heroine who's out not only to save her home, but also to prove that small creatures can do big things. I can't wait to read the sequel, Little Fur: A Fox Called Sorrow.
