This fantasy tale with strong ecological themes will delight young listeners who love nature and woodland creatures. Little Fur is a red-headed half elf/half troll, the size of a three-year-old human, who takes care of the animals around her. But when she learns that humans are about to start burning the forest down, she embarks on a quest to stop them. With well-developed characters drawn from the natural world (the crow is particularly memorable), The Legend of Little Fur is an enjoyable, high-quality tale. Isobelle Carmody's voice is sweet enough for young ears, but capable of being loud and forceful when necessary.
This is a story full of magic and wonder, of unforgettable characters and exciting adventures.

"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 think this is a fabulous story for all ages. it remind us of the importance of our communication and relationship with the earth,creatures seen and unseen and humans. this book delightfully assists in the re-membering of us and our child-like wonderous nature as well as our responsibility to it.
My daughter (eleven) is an audiobook afficionado. She was apologetic about telling me she did not really liuke this one. Her summary: "it's boring as all heck." Oooops!
