5.5.Esaugetuh Emissee.

In a Creek creation myth, the entire world was underwater, except for one hill, with a house, in which Esaugetuh Emissee (master of breath) lived. He created humanity from the clay on the hill.

Read a book with a body of water on the cover. It must be large enough for a regular-sized human to swim in.
REQUIRED: Include the cover in your post.

yep - if there's an arm sticking out of the water, gotta figure (or at least hope!) that the rest of the body is in there!

yes, but keep in mind that book that is only in ebook form needs to be approved for length - and this one looks as if it would be your one book <100 pages.

yes, if it's big enough to row a boat in, it would be big enough to swim in.

yes. Note that this is a childrens book, so if using it, you need to include the required info in your post.

In future, when asking about a cover task, you should include the cover in your post.
