Little Fur is My Heroine! 14 Dec. 2007
By Pegi Eyers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I should have stopped reading Young Adult fiction a lifetime ago yet "Little Fur: The Legend Begins" jumped out at me from the shelf and I'm glad it did! The ecological truths it contains make it a valuable read for all ages. Following the quest and adventures of the charming heroine is a delight. Also, Little Fur has all the attributes of the Divine Feminine that are important to the cultural shift currently going on, away from patriarchal thinking and the wholesale depletion of nature's resources. Little Fur is a tiny "wise woman"; a reader of auras (by olfactory means!), a nurturer and healer of all green growing things and the woodland birds and animals. Part elf and part troll, she is a loving embodiment of sacred earth energy, a protector of the giant trees or "Old Ones" in the sacred grove, and a dweller of the "greenplace". If her feet were to touch anything not of the wild (ie. concrete) she would immediately be cast out of the wilderness and separated from the currents of earth magic forever. This powerful metaphor may point to how the collective soul of humanity (earth-dwellers all) may have been better off if the intrinsic principle of being in close proximity to the earth had been honored throughout the ages. Little Fur and her companions and allies (flora or fauna) are continually shocked by the stupidity and selfishness of the humans' activities. Most of the humans act as if they are NOT a part of the circle of earth energy. The zenith of this philosophy of separation from the natural world is represented by "rogue humans" responsible for crimes against the environment. Carrying her petition to stop them deep into a chasm underground, the beauty and spiritual truth at the heart of Little Fur's story culminates with a powerful "message to humanity" from the mystical Tree Guardian. Highly recommended.
An Elf Troll Quest 18 Dec. 2013
By Arthur W. Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Legend Begins (2005) is the first Fantasy novel in the Little Fur series. It takes place in a wild area of a city park and elsewhere within the city.

In this novel, Little Fur is an elf troll. Her father was an elf and her mother was a troll. She doesn't smell bad like purebred trolls.

Brownie is a pony. He lives in a stable nearby and jumps the fence to visit Little Fur. He is fascinated with elves.

Crow is a city bird who had flown into a tree. Little Fur nursed him back to health and he visits her to tell stories of the crazy humans.

Ginger and Sly are feral cats living in the city. They have been healed by Little Fur and are her friends.

In this story, Little Fur lives among the seven Old Ones. They are giant trees hidden by brush and magic spells. They whisper to her when she is close.

Brownie is full of energy and offers to carry her on his back. Little Fur refuses because she always has to touch the earth magic. Riding on him will break her connection to the magic and she may never get it back again.

Crow has come to tell Little Fur about the latest human craziness. He says a pack of humans are sneaking out at night to burn trees. He had learned the news from a possum, who had heard it from the picture box.

Little Fur is horrified by the news, but waits for Brownie to come for a second opinion. Brownie often disparages Crow's news as wild speculation. Yet this time he confirms the story and says that the humans are very angry about the tree burners.

Crow tells Little Fur that she should seek the advice of the Sett Owl. Unfortunately, she lives in the city at Beak House. Little Fur is afraid of the city, but that evening she dreams among the roots of the Old Ones.

The next morning, Little Fur has decided to seek the Sett Owl. Crow will go with her and two cats will also accompany her. She waits until night to avoid the humans.

This tale takes Little Fur into the unknown. Her guides lead the way, with Crow flying overhead and the cats prowling before her. Ginger and Sly also hunt for food as they are scouting the way.

Little Fur expects the Sett Owl to produce a hero to foil the tree burners. Yet she states that it is Little Fur's quest. Little Fur doesn't feel like a hero, but promises to do whatever she can.

Little Fur has much trouble staying in contact with earth magic in the city. The next installment in this sequence is A Fox Called Sorrow.

Highly recommended for Carmody fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of fairy creatures, desperate quests, and a persevering female. Read and enjoy!
