"Little Fur is an endearing little creature... the novel reads as a gentle fable that children from eight to 10 will enjoy." - (Australian Bookseller & Publisher)
I felt that he subject matter was far too heavy for children under 12 or so--animal experimentation and torture. The book would be fine for older kids, but not for 8 year olds as was recommended.
Performance was heartfelt and intelligent.
Good story, just for older kids.
My 5 year old daughter has been listening to the first book of Little Fur for over a year, so it was time we got the second one. It is such a delight to listen to Isobelle Carmody reading her own book (and being Australian, it's great to hear Australian readers as well as US and UK accents). A great story that because of it's length we can listen to again and again to get more out of it each time. I'm sure my daughter only picks up a little each time (depending on what else she's doing at the time), but she plays and listens and eventually knows the story.
