"Robby's Quest for Seed" by D.C.Rush is the first book of the three part series. The story is about Robby and his brother Ricky and some of their other birdie friends who decide to fly to Florida to escape from Winter. They want to enjoy the sunny weather of Florida. They meet with a few misfortunes when Joy the sparrow wanders from the group and lands in front of Hershey the cat. They also suffer setbacks when they reach Florida to find out that their winter abode has been destroyed by a hurricane.

I found the story very exciting. The feathered friends are all interesting characters. The author has given them each a different personality. They are all unique and each of them will remain etched in your mind even after closing the book. It is a nice way to introduce children to different types of birds. Just as in the other two books, the illustrations are fabulous. The characters and the illustrations complement each other beautifully. It adds up to the book's charm and makes it even more appealing to a child. "Robby's Quest for Seed", though adventurous and fun, has underlying tones of disappointment, hope, challenges, friendship and fortitude which makes it an interesting read. Children understand about all these emotions through deft story telling. Will Robby and his friends be able to spend their winter in the hurricane ravaged Florida or will they fly back to Arizona and spend the rest of their holidays in the hot weather?
