KIRKUS REVIEW

In this third volume of Little Fur adventures, Carmody’s wee heroine confronts a mystic order of wolves while searching for her missing friend. As Little Fur prepares for midwinter night, she worries something has happened to her vanished pal Ginger. After Sett Owl advises Little Fur to “seek the Mystery of the Wolves,” she meets Graysong, an elder wolf at the zoo who offers to lead her to the Mystery of Wolves, a secret wolf pack that dwells in the mountains. Following a difficult journey through the frozen landscape, Little Fur and Graysong arrive at the Mystery’s fortress where they encounter King Balidore, Graysong’s misguided son. Balidore holds Ginger captive and plans to destroy Little Fur to gain her elf spirit for his dark purposes. In the ensuing foray, Graysong sacrifices himself to save Little Fur, who makes a surprising discovery about the elf warrior and troll princess who were her parents. Little Fur fans will be pleased with her closing message that “it is not necessary to know everything at once,” which hints at more eco-adventures to come. (Fantasy. 8-11)
