KIRKUS REVIEW

Little Fur’s quest to prevent the Troll King from destroying the earth spirit continues in this second book of the eco-fantasy series. Part elf and part troll, Little Fur lives in an ancient forest surrounded by urban blight. Dedicated to her mission of planting seeds and healing injured creatures, she seeks advice from Sett Owl and winds up on another harrowing journey. Her mismatched companions include two volunteer ferrets, a greedy rat, a loyal cat and a melancholy fox named Sorrow. Warned that someone will betray them, the wary pack descends beneath the city to Underth, the Troll King’s forbidding subterranean stronghold. Determined to heal Sorrow’s broken body and spirit, Little Fur follows the fox to the heart of danger, where they discover the Troll King’s plan to unleash germ warfare on earth. Battling trolls and darkness, Little Fur must test the strength of her healing powers. Little Fur remains an inspiring heroine who proves that not “all things that are great are large.” An environmentally friendly message packaged in page-turning adventure. (Fantasy. 8-11)
