The 2018 You're Such an Animal Release Challenge begins at 12:01 a.m. (your time) on September 1, 2018, and ends at 11:59 p.m. (your time) on October 4, 2018 (which is “World Animal Day”). This is the 15th year for this challenge, and each year has been loads of fun.

It’s easy. Just WILD release at least 20 books where the name of the book has within it the name of some kind of animal (not human), insect, or reptile. Any once-living animal or mammal (except man) will do—cat, dog, chicken, wolf, tiger, monkey, insects, lizards, arachnids, birds, dinosaurs, creature, and beast are acceptable words. You can use the gender names of animals and the baby names animals, too: mare, stallion, pup, kitten, kitty, puppy, pony, kid, etc. I even allow mythical creatures (phoenix, griffin, mermaid, dragon, etc.) Books entitled “The Cat in the Hat,” “Along Came a Spider,” “The Mouse That Roared,” “The Monkey House” and “A Bird in the Hand” are all good. However, a book titled “Rin Tin Tin” doesn’t work because although it’s a story about a dog, it does not have the word “dog” in the title. Embedded words are also acceptable (i.e., KIDnapped, LASSie, The SHADe of the Moon). Though controlled releases are not allowed, releases to any official OBCZ is satisfactory because OBCZs are somewhat Wild in that you never know who will be picking up the books.

You may use foreign (non-English) titles—but the title must be translated into English when you put down the link. Translations must be as the author would have intended them (so if there is more than one meaning to a word and one of those meanings is an animal, it can only be used if the author would have intended it).

In the past, there have been members who have issued special challenges within the Animal Challenge, for instance, releasing only one book of each kind of animal or only books with the word cat in them, or you may wish to theme your releases (i.e., The Rats of NIMH released at a science lab). I’m not requiring any of these, but will take note of any extra releasing complexities in the challenge and will give extra credit for creativity and difficulty, so PLEASE be sure to let me know when you add pics of the books released or when you do themed releases. Wings will be awarded to top releasers at the completion of the contest.

Each link you give for your released books should look like this:

#6. Cat http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/3243651. (Themed release with pic)

It must tell me which number book you are releasing and the kind of animal. Credit is given only for number of books, not
number of animals released per title. If you release “The Wolf and the Dove” you get only one credit. Again, be sure to let me know if you’ve themed your releases, put pics of the release points, or done other things which I might give extra credit for. Come and join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

Here are more specific answers to some questions asked in the past:

The following are okay:

Release more than one copy of an animal book or duplicates of the same animal
animals of all sorts (mammals, fish, birds, bugs)
the gender of any of those animals (drake, mare, stallion)
Breeds: maltese, yorkshire, palomino, etc.

The following words are good:

bait (because bait can be a fish or previously living animal)
cootie (or louse)
slang (Kitty, Puss, Doggy, etc., but spelled correctly)
all the 'baby' animal names are acceptable (duckling, cygnet, pup etc...)
plural (ants, dogs, Appaloosas etc...)
Spellings must be correct (cat not Kat, lion not Lyon)
No abbreviations (alligator, not gator; dinosaur, not dino)
embedded animals are okay (harry pOTTER or clASS, etc- -
embedded animal has to fit the language. (so, German animal in a German title, etc.) -
embedded also has to be in ONE word, not across spaces.
embedded--can be in the subtitle (even if it doesn’t show in the original book title, be sure it is in your journal entry)
Readers' Digest or other book collections okay as long as one of the titles has an animal in it and the title is shown on the front (or spine) of the book must be in the title (not the author)
the animal has to match the language (so Spanish book must have a Spanish animal name)

The words below won't count:

Capricorn, Leo, Taurus (the Zodiac signs)
groups (like gaggle of geese- - geese is ok, gaggle is <u>not</u>)

Thanks for hosting again.

ETA: I'm not playing for prizes (if you are giving any).


I think I can scare up 20 creatures here at home without going to storage. 😉
Since you are counting OBCZ's, Secretariat...would LFL's count as well?

Edited to add...

Better yet, how about books donated (is that "Wild") to a "new to me" School lost to a fire just as the new School year began, as "seed" to start a new Library? ; )

Yes, any place where you can't know who will be picking up the book(s).

GOOD NEWS, inDEED!!! : D Thank you, Secretariat!!! ; ) As soon as I have all of the information, I'm going to post in another Forum to see if others would want to send any books to the little school, as well. Thankfully, the fire was after hours and no one was injured, but they lost everything. Another local school was able to offer them space for now, and the Community has rallied behind their immediate needs for supplies and things for the children. A new Library for this little Pre-K - 5th Grade Elementary School will need lots of books!!! ; )

Save yourself the angst the next time and send me a PM. Time moves too quickly for me and I lose track of which month I'm in and what's supposed to be happening.

***[OU] Don't know if you'll count OU, Secretariat, but if you Google “define ou”, you'll find that an Ou is a fruit-eating Hawaiian Honeycreeper [BIRD]with a stout bill and green and yellow plumage.

Well, if you're going with (probably extinct) Hawaiian birds like the ʻōʻū, there's also the (actually extinct) ʻōʻō...both of those are going to be easier to find in a book title than the (threatened but apparently still out there) ʻiʻiwi. ;)
Educational footnote: technically, the glottal stop - ʻokina - is considered a letter in Hawaiian, but in practice it's often left out, especially when using Hawaiian words in English text. And "Hawaiian" should never have an ʻokina, because it's an English word, not a Hawaiian one. A lot depends how many nits you feel like picking. :p

(It's still the 31st here, so the animals will have to wait for tomorrow.)


(probably extinct) Hawaiian birds like the ʻōʻū



You might notice that the "OU"s were not part of my required 20, but if allowed, would be another others who are participating could look for to try to meet their goal of 20.

[A lot depends how many nits you feel like picking.
(It's still the 31st here, so the animals will have to wait for tomorrow.)]

Physical limitations keep me from being able to sit and/or stand for long periods of time, so I had/have to start my long post/s a bit early. I'm adding the links this morning, and will try to make the "Official" Release notes later. The books are set to arrive at the school just after the Labor Day Holiday break. I had to mail them, as I'm not able to drive that far to deliver them. ; )

I will accept extinct animals, and actually know about both the ou and oo birds because years ago when I was in Honolulu I went on a hike given by a biologist who had come to the islands to study them/find them (and has never left - even to visit his family - fearing he won't be able to go back). We got a whole lecture about how many extinct animals and plants there are because of civilization coming to the islands. Fascinating and sad.

What a great experience that seems to have been for you. Thanks for sharing!!! : )
Fascinating and sad.
Truly is...on both counts. ; )

OH, and...Thank y[OU]!!! ; D Maybe I'll be able to find 17 more to release before your October 4th Challenge deadline and have two groups of 20. ; )
