What an Animal Reading Challenge COMPLETE!

Several months back I signed on to the What an Animal Reading Challenge with the good folks at What An Animal Reading Challenge.

The rules were simple: read a book that had an animal on the cover or contained an animal. Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?

HA! This turned out to be more difficult than I thought but I’m glad to say I completed it!

Yay!

Here are the books I read:

1. The Cat Who Turned On and Off Lilian Jackson Braun.  My review is here.

2. Green Eggs and Ham (Dr. Seuss’ Birthday!)  Reviewed here.

3. Hunger Games (a bird on the cover!!) Reviewed here.

4. Catching Fire.  I have NO proof, you’ll just hafta trust me.  You can quiz me if you like, I know ALL the answers.  prolly.

5. Mockingjay.  Proof that my cat supervised the reading of Mockingjay.

6. So Many Bunnies Board Book: A Bedtime ABC and Counting Book.  A video read; down below.

 

and ta DA!! That makes 6!!

I’ve loved participating in these challenges. Can’t wait to see what I’ll get into next.

Have you participated in any challenges?

Book Review: The Cat Who Turned On and Off

The Cat Who Turned on and Off by Lilian Jackson Braun

Cleo and I just finished

The Cat Who Turned on and Off by Lilian Jackson Braun

The Cat Who Turned on and Off by Lilian Jackson Braun

The Cat Who…is a story of a reporter nicknamed Qwill

who discovers some odd behaviors in Junktown

and of course, a mystery ensues!

This was our first foray into reading Braun’s work.

I found it delightfully easy to read, the characters amiable and

who doesn’t love to be taken back in time to a more genteel era of the 60s?

Cleo especially liked that everything about the book involved CATS.

Cats in the title:

Cats as the main characters: KoKo and YumYum

and cat prints on the cover:

What’s not to love?

Cleo and I gave it 3 paws.

This book also counts as part of TWO challenges:

What an Animal

and

Getting Lost in a Comfortable Book
