Misfit Challenges Wolves and Penguins and Foxes, Oh My!    

WOLVES AND PENGUINS AND FOXES, OH MY!
DURATION: February 1 – July 31, 2018
There are some animals that are most often associated with cold and snow. Here's a challenge that may help you learn a little more about five of our favorite "winter" animals :)

Read a book set in the northern hemisphere; tell us where OR a book with a circular object shown prominently on its cover; post the cover
Scotland The Exile of Sara Stevenson Darci Hannah 2/3/18

2. They have two layers of very white fur to protect them from the cold. The inner layer works as a waterproof barrier for the skin, while the outer layer is thick to keep body heat in. During the winter, the outer layer will get even thicker.
Read a "thick" book (over 400 pages); tell us how many pages OR a book with a two-word title (ALL words count)
688 pagesCloser Than You Think Karen Rose 2/5/18

Read a book by an author whose first and last initials can be found in ARCTICWOLF OR a book set in the winter (Nov., Dec. or Jan.); tell us when
Absinthe Winter Renshaw 2/6/18

Wild Justice Liz Fielding 2/20/18

❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄

Read a book set in the southern hemisphere; tell us where OR a book originally published between 1998 and 2003 (inclusive); tell us the publication date

6. Emperor Penguins can be 3-1/2 feet tall and weigh up to 75 pounds, while Little Blue Penguins, also known as Fairy Penguins, are only 16 inches tall and weigh a mere 2-1/2 pounds.

Alone In the Dark Karen Rose 2/12/18

7. Penguins can't fly, they swim instead, using their wings for propulsion. They can reach speeds of around 15 miles per hour. About 75% of a penguin's life is spent in the water, where they do all of their hunting.
Read a book with a bird name in the title OR a book with a character who swims regularly; tell us the character

8. They have insulating layers of air, skin and blubber, and their white bellies blend with the snow and sunlight, making it difficult for an underwater predator to see them.

Even the Score Beth Ehemann 2/19/18

9. When penguins find mates, they sing to each other so they can recognize their voices. Penguins take very good care of their eggs. After the female penguin lays her egg she goes out to look for food. The male penguin will sit on the egg to protect it until she returns. When she comes back he leaves to look for food.
Read a book in which both parents take care of their children OR a book with ROMANCE on its main GR page
Dignity Jay Crownover 2/14/18

10. When the chick hatches, it immediately starts calling out so its parents will learn to recognize its voice.
Read a book in which music plays an important part; without giving away spoilers, tell us how OR a book whose main character's first initial can be found in CHICK

11. They are social animals who usually move in large groups to keep warm. They can be playful, and seem to enjoy tobogganing. They will lay on their tummy and slide through the ice and snow. Penguins will also dive off cliffs into the water, get out and dive again for fun. Penguins can jump up to 6 feet out of the water.
Read a book just for fun OR a book with a character who could be considered playful; tell us the character and why you think that

❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄ ❄
