The Legend of Little Fur
The Legend of Little Fur series blends fantasy, mythology, adventure and ecology. This beautifully bound hardcover with a soft felt finish features original ink illustrations by Isobelle Carmody.
Little Fur is a half elf, half troll and though she looks more like a four-year-old child she is much older. She lives as an animal healer in her very own patch of wilderness in the nexus of a sprawling human city. Little Fur adores her quiet life in the magical grove and cannot leave lest she face the possibility of being permanently severed from the earth magic that her elven ancestry connects her to. She is forced to do just this in a series of dangerous crusades to save her friends and her cherished environment continuously threatened by human and troll activity. Throughout these efforts she is accompanied by many animal companions both comedic and serious, sweetly loyal and dangerously erratic. She also uncovers surprising information about her own unusual parentage. This is a story of magic and wonder, of bravery and powerful platonic love that prevails even through the toughest of times.
