Critter Characters

 Hosted at Socrates Reviews this is all about the animals as the name implies.  This is a new to me challenge but I figured there are plenty of cozies out there that have animals as main characters/supporting characters.  

Any book read for this challenge has to have an animal that plays a major role in the book (which could be fiction or non-fiction.) It also counts if a main character is (or turns into) an animal (define that however you'd like). 

These are the levels.

Level 1 - Read 6 books

Level 2 - Read 7-12  

Level 3 - Read 13-20 

Level 4
- Read 21 or more<=   My Goal
