Kristy at Passion for the Page is hosting part II of the What An Animal Challenge.

1. Read at least 6 books that have any of the following requirements:

a. there is an animal in the title of the book
b. there is an animal on the cover of the book
c. an animal plays a major role
d. a main character is (or turns into) an animal (define that however you’d like

2. The animal can be any type of animal (real or fictitious)–dog, cat, monkey, wolf, snake, insect, hedgehog, aardvark…dragon, mermaid, centaur, vampire, werewolf…you get the idea…
3. Challenge runs from July 1, 2009 to February 28, 2010.

I thought I still had 1 more book to go until I realized that The Angel Experiment counted since the kids are actually birds. Looking forward to this one again next year.
