The Pridelands Cycle is a fictional book series in Housepets! written by Res Auburn and credited under his owner Ms. Auburn. It is a series chronicling the wars in ancient Africa of animal tribes. It is particularly popular with cats, such as Grape and Max, (as well as certain dogs.) There are currently 6 books; the first four being: Hunters of the Pridelands, Glories of the Pridelands, Fall of the Pridelands and Hope of the Pridelands, and a seventh book, The End of the Pridelands currently being written. There also have been at least two movies as well.
