"Robby's Quest: Return of the Cat" by D.C. Rush is part of a three story adventure series about Robby and his friends. While "Robby's Quest: Ocean Bound" is about moving to San Diego in summer and their team spirit and trust for each other, this book sees the return of Hershey the cat. He plans to eat one bird for his breakfast every day and spoil everything for the birds. The story is about Josie and her newly made sparrow friend Joy who wants to explore the world and they decide to move to Las Vegas. They persuade their friends - the Sparrows, Robins and a blackbird - to move with them. This book deals with the challenges these birds face and how they overcome them.

I would suggest "Robby's Quest: Return of the Cat" for all the small kids, especially the ones who are getting into reading. Every school library should have books like this. The story has different types of birds. It is educational for children who are trying to learn the different names of the birds. The illustrator has done a marvelous job by matching the illustrations to the personality of the birds presented in the book. Children are always fascinated by animals. So bringing them to life in this book is an ideal way to get them hooked to reading. The book is also about joy, love, happiness, excitement and friendship. Would Hershey be able to eat the birds for breakfast? Would he ruin the vacation plans of the birds?
