Little Fur has battled once before with those who would destroy the great earth spirit that nurtures all living things. Now her fate becomes entangled with the mysterious fox, Sorrow, and together they must travel to Underth in a dangerous quest to uncover the evil plans of the troll king.
'Isobelle Carmody's Legend of Little Fur books evoke a dreamlike sense of warmth and tenderness.' Sydney Morning Herald
'Isobelle Carmody's impish, environmentally passionate character is completely convincing, taking readers into a world that's familiar, and yet in Carmody's hands, refreshingly original.' Sunday Age
