    One Reply to “A Fox Called Sorrow”

    1. Throughout "A Fox Called Sorrow", this talented Australian writer, Isobelle Carmody, vividly reflects how alienating the human world is to other creatures, and how pervasive and confusing. Cars are terrifying "road beasts" and trains are "road serpents", and Little Fur, the elf troll, cannot set foot on the wide, black roads, lest she break her contact with the earth, which suffocates beneath these poisonous black veins, and with the "earth magic" that assists her abilities as a healer of injure [...]

    2. A Fox Called Sorrow is the sequel to The Legend of Little Fur. Like the first book, it was faced paced but a lot of fun to read. Little Fur, has come a long way from the Elf-Troll who hated anything to do with humans. She still has distaste for a lot of them but she is curious about them and knows there are some good. She's a very curious creature and you see that with her interactions with Sorrow. Sorrow, intrigues you and makes you feel like you can understand his pain and hatred of all humans [...]

    3. Normally I shudder when I read a review that begins with "a delightful tale," but I'll be darned if that wasn't the first thing I thought after finishing Carmody's story. Little Fur's half-elven, half-trollish perspective on humans and their creations was comical, yet also bypassed the mishmash of facades and charades that we erect, leaving our constructs in their naked horror and disruption of the natural worldor perhaps I'm reading too much into a children's book.

    4. A sweetly charming and relatively simple tale, that follows on from the fable "Little Fur". Carmody has a lyrical writing style, that would translate well to being narrated aloud, and also resounds poetically in the reader's spirit. With a slightly more complex plot than its predecessor, "Sorrow" also has a shadow of sadness - mainly in the character of Sorrow, the fox who wants to die, but whose body resists anything but a hero's death.

    5. This good book is about this troll/elf Little Fur who is a healer to animals. Which means that she heals animals for anybody that does not get it. In this book Little Fur meets a fox called Sorrow who learns a great lesson and goes on an incredible journey. Little Fur is tring to find out the troll king's plans to get rid of all the earth magic and save everybody from despair.

    6. I know it's a book for younger kids, but even so it just swept me away. It makes you see things from another point of view. The other day it struck me how odd roads really were, and the noisy roadbeasts noisily roaring past on them.

    7. A sweet little story. I picked this one up in the clearance bin after Christmas.I didn't like that the only humans portrayed were those that were cruel to animals, even though she did say that not all humans were evil.

    8. I enjoyed this more than the first book. There was more action and I felt that there was more depth in the characters. This is a great children's book, with a really good message. I think I will be continuing with this series!

    9. Beautiful follow on from Little Fur. All children should enjoy the magic and warmth of the Legend of Little Fur.

    10. It wasn't a terrible book, I thought it was a good book for the younger generations. It would have made so much more sense if i read the first book of the series first.

    11. A story of far greater depth and darkness than most books for young readers. It really got the kids thinking, and the love Little Fur and her friends.

    12. Lost my long review of this by switching editions half way through the review. Will I never learn? Aaagh!Suffice to say, I love the book. Design, writing and illustrations, all.
