15.9 -- In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb
Read a book with the name of an animal in the title or a picture of an animal on the cover. Animals must be real. Dogs, cats, insects, horses, fish, birds, or reptiles will work. Mythical animals such as dragons, unicorns, werewolves, and vampires will not. Required: If using the cover option, you must include the cover or a link to the book in your post.

These will NOT work:
The Bronze Horseman


message 4: by Isabell (new)

Isabell (purzel) | 247 comments How prominent does the animal have to be on the cover? I was thinking of Children of Amarid (The Lon Tobyn Chronicle, #1) by David B. Coe , which as a hawk on the cover although the person is more prominent.

That works. The animal doesn't need to be especially prominent.

Erin (NY) (erin_p) | 629 comments Do insects work? "bee" or "dragonfly"? (Little Bee or Dragonfly in Amber)
Edited: never mind! I just realized they are permitted in the task description

No, sorry, additions to the animal name that make it not an animal anymore won't work.

Carrie (goodreadscomkeridwynn) | 196 comments Would a "dead" bird, or silhouette of one work?

Here is the cover:

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (Flavia de Luce, #1) by Alan Bradley The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

Thanks so much!

Yes, that works.

Carrie (goodreadscomkeridwynn) | 196 comments Wonderful. I happen to find a somewhat local bookclub where I live and they are reading this book for an upcoming meeting. I had been hoping to stick this into the Reading Challenge too. Thank you!

I can clearly see that it's a wolf. So, yes, it will work.

RedSycamore | 111 comments What about a stylized animal like Batman The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller or Crossfire by Dick Francis ? (Not Batman, but the little bat in the yellow part of the cover. It's very small in this picture)

Either of those would work.

Dinosaurs work.


message 27: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (amandapearl) | 273 comments Hi I have two ideas for this.

Would

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater

or

Tithe (The Modern Faerie Tales, #1) by Holly Black

work? In the bottom right corner of Shiver there is an outline of a wolf and Tithe has a butterfly.

message 31: by Fran (new)

Fran | 736 comments I would like to use The Lady and the Unicorn (Loveswept, #29) by Iris Johansen

Although there is "unicorn" in the title, the story is actually about a woman who runs an animal reserve. On the cover it looks like there are bison/some kind of cattle. Just wanted to make sure the animals could be made out well enough. Thanks!

Yeah, unicorn won't work. But that does look vaguely like a buffalo or bison on the cover. I'll take it.

Judithe | 74 comments I'm wondering if one of these would work? The stories are about shifters, however, the animal in the pic on front is a depiction of a real animal.

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, Judithe. I've been out on the boat all weekend.

Either one of these will work. As long as the picture is of a real animal, it's OK if the stories are about not-so-real animals ;o). Enjoy!


message 36: by Judithe (new)

Judithe | 74 comments No problem, and hope you had a wonderful time on the boat!

The word "Pigs" in the title fits the task, the book is over 100 pages, and poetry is fine. So, yes, that book will work. I read the first couple of poems on Google Books. Very cute ;o)!
