Alas, it takes 2 letters, but SIMULAR plus another A and a P gives us MARSUPIAL !

SIMULAR

change M to T

RITUALS

( I like that better than adding a T and getting MURALIST. )

(take about three steps to turn it into SATURNALIA, and from there one step to NATURALIST)

But within the roolz -

TITULARS - drop the U and make STARLIT

Luke,

TIRES to STRESS is two changes, I think.
TIRES --> TRESS --> STRESS

But continuing from STRESS,
Add an E, TRESSES

Luke -

Try doing it with the chages identified; that will make you aware of the steps.

TRESSES
add, or drop or change one letter
change one S to a T
rearrange
STREETS
