Little Fur is very old, though she looks more like a four-year-old child. She is half elf and half troll, and she lives in her very own wilderness, a patch of park, within the city where the humans live. Little Fur is distressed by what the humans are doing to her patch of wilderness--they are burning trees--and she must go on a perilous journey to prevent her precious home from being destroyed. She enlists the help of her friends: Brownie the shaggy Shetland pony, Crow the crow, and the Sett Owl. This is a story full of magic and wonder, of unforgettable characters and exciting adventures.
