Animal Tales #1-4 is a collection, published by Random House, which has been endorsed by the RSPCA.

   The stories are fictional, but each tale includes factual tips from the RSPCA including how to take care of a new puppy, learning why cage-free eggs are better along with certain other pertinent animal fact files.
   In The Million Paws Puppy, the foursome participate in the welfare organisation’s annual fundraiser and rescue a runaway puppy; Ruby’s Misadventure sees them racing against time to find the cause of a cat’s serious illness; two well-behaved terriers turn mischievous when their elderly owner goes into hospital for an operation in Double Trouble; and a visit to an RSPCA farm results in a surprising discovery in An Unexpected Arrival.  
   The RSPCA, who will receive royalties from every Animal Tales book sold, deserve to be supported since this community-based charity works tirelessly to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection.
