An exciting, inspiring story based on a real-life animal rescue. Includes facts about badgers, an interview with a real RSPCA inspector, information about the RSPCA children's club and more. Scholastic will donate 15p to the RSPCA from every book sold. When Lewis and his dad see a baby badger on the side of the road, they fear it may be injured and call the RSPCA. But when the RSPCA arrive to examine the young badger, she proves tricky to catch. Scared and looking for a hiding place, she scampers under a parked car, only to get well and truly stuck! The RSPCA must work with the Fire and Rescue team to try and free the baby badger, and Lewis is going to do all he can to help.
