15.9 - Animal Guides
According to Native American tradition, each individual is connected with nine different animal guides, or totems, which accompany them through life. Different totems come and go as your direction in life changes. Choose a totem from the North American Totems list and read a book that contains the name of that animal in its title or subtitle. Plurals and possessives are OK, but no other variations. Note: There are 2 pages of totems.

Note: Either animal may be used for Boar/Pig and Heron/Egret. Both do NOT need to appear in the title.

From the review, it sounds like it would be fine but I don't have the book in hand. Since you do, if it seems to have at least 100 pages worth of text in it then it will work. If you find it's more pictures than words, then it wouldn't fit the SRC rules.

Looks good in that case. While it's got about 50 photos, not all of them are full page and the book is 157pg. So I think it squeaks through.

Cool. It sounds like a really cute book. Snuck its way onto my TBR pile, too. ;-)

You're looking for the name of an animal in the title of the book, not a picture of it on the cover. And, since the task says no variations then, no, mammoth wouldn't work even if it was in the title.

Task description says "Plurals and possessives are OK, but no other variations." So, no, compound words don't work.
