The further adventures of Robby the Robin and his friends.
In the first book, Robby’s Quest for Seed, we discovered how Robby and Ricky the Robins, and their friends, migrated to Arizona, and the adventures they had on the way.
In this second book, we join the assorted flock of birds as they discover that Arizona is getting hotter by the day and wonder if they ought to migrate again, but this time to somewhere cooler.
The birds are trying to deciding where to go, and then Ruby, Ricky’s girlfriend and one of the new flock members suggests they go to San Diego, by the coast. She has been there before. All the other birds listen with interest as she tells them excitedly about her previous visit, how the weather is glorious and the food is plentiful, until finally convinced, they agree to migrate there.
Led by Ruby, they set off on their new adventure, eventually arriving in beautiful San Diego. It seems like paradise to them and soon they’ve picked their nesting tree in the gorgeous Balboa Park.
Happily, the birds go off the next day, exploring their beautiful new surroundings, but the two young sparrows Joy and Rosie become bored with sunning on the beach and decide to fly out to a big white ship they spy on the ocean.
The journey is further than they think, and when they arrive on deck they’re hungry, so they eat and take a nap. To their horror, when they awake they discover they are miles away from the flock, surrounded by sea and on an adventure of their own!
Meanwhile at home, when they’re discovered missing, all the birds go out searching for them, then Sid the Mourning Dove learns from Sadie the friendly Seagull that she saw two Sparrows flying over to a big white ship, but didn’t notice them return.
Soon a search party sets off down the south coast and into Mexico to try and find them.
But will they succeed?
What will become of the intrepid flock next?
The continuing adventures of Robby, Ricky and the rest of the flock make a lovely story, sure to enthral any youngster, and the book is beautifully illustrated by Kaui Wilson.
