Book three, from the Robby's Quest children's storybook series, written by D.C. Rush, illustrated in color by Daniela Frongia.
Joy the Sparrow and her new best friend Josie want to see the world and why not start in Las Vegas, where the birds can visit Caesars Palace, the Eiffel Tower and New York City, all in the same day. So, the loyal group of friends - Sparrows, Robins and a Blackbird - fly there to have some fun.
However, Hershey the Cat, whom they've bumped into before, is back in the picture and would love nothing more than having at least one of the birds for a morning snack. Can the birds keep out of his clutches and claws? Will they get to their destination safely?
The courageous birds are pushed to their limits and Hershey also has to face some tough truths about himself.
This is a bright and inspiring story about facing challenges and being the best, you can.

About the Author
Publishing our first book was only a dream. The finished book sat on our computer hard drive for over a year before being convinced to self-publish. Self-publishing Robby's Quest for Seed was a difficult decision; however, the birth of our grandson Rylie gave us some added incentive to get the book out there. We decided to dedicate the first book to Rylie. We also thought it would be nice to leave something behind for our children and their children.
Since writing and publishing Robby's Quest for Seed in 2012, we have published three additional books in the series, Robby's Quest: Ocean Bound, Robby's Quest: Return of the Cat and Robby's Quest: Thrills and Chills. Our fifth book, Hershey Learns a Lesson, is a story about a bully cat named Hershey and the life lessons he learns one day. We have also self-published The Adventures of Sammy the Dalmatian and Friends, a story about the love and dedication three dogs have for each other.
Cathy and Don currently live in Arizona with their cats, Nomi and Hershey. Cathy is a homemaker and Don is a retired Manufacturing Manager and former Elementary School Governing Board Member.

Robby and his friends, a mixed flock of robins, sparrows, mourning doves, and a blackbird, are a very adventurous. It seems that nothing can get them down for long, because they have each other. They know that they can rely on each other for friendship, support, guidance, and help in case of trouble. And in the bird world, there is always trouble. In this, the third book of the series, Robby and the gang have a decision to make: Would they stay here or go to Arizona, where it would be warmer? The conclusion is that they will go their own ways for the time being, then perhaps reunite at some other time. The robins and the sparrows (most of them) decide to have an adventure in Las Vegas, while the others decide to stay put. Unbeknownst to them, Hershey, the cat who had preyed upon them before, has moved to Las Vegas also. And he has a score to settle… This is a great story in many ways. It not only gives a covert lesson in the benefits of living in harmony with each other, it is also a geography lesson of sorts. The readers (and the read-to) are introduced to other parts of the country as the birds learn about life in the desert cities of Arizona. I highly recommend this series.
This installment in the adventures of Robby and his friends really feels like it’s about redemption! I’m not going to giveaway the ending, but Hershey get’s a pleasant surprise! There are many sweet lessons of family, friendship and humility throughout the book. Hershey shows that he can be a good kitty. He’s able to be convinced by some very important people that you don’t have to me mean in order to gain something from someone! Overall The Babes really loved the series. This is a great read for a young reader who is able to read on a third grade level. The formatting is pleasant and the illustrations in all the books are wonderful. The Babes and I would love to see more of Robby’s adventures. Overall The Babes really liked the books! Twila still comes back to one of them every few days to read. I would definitely recommend these books for kids, they are well written, well formatted and have a great story. The illustrations are quite beautiful and improved with each book. If you have little ones you should pick these up!
Hershey the Cat is sad, horrible recurring nightmares haunt his sleep and all his authority has gone, all because of a silly incident with some annoying birds. What’s more, his life is changing and he has no control over it. He’s not sure what’s happening, but one thing he does know is that he’s not a happy cat! After their summer in San Diego, Robby and his flock are deciding where to go next. Some of the flock decide to stay put, but the others are undecided. In the end, they decide to go to Las Vegas where apparently you can see many replicas of the wonders of the world in one place. The next day they set off. Two trips made at the same time, one by a cat haunted by memories, the other by a flock of birds. What are the chances of them meeting? And, if by chance they did, what might happen? Finally arriving in Las Vegas the flock make friends with some very unusual coloured birds and have the time of their life, visiting all the famous sights. Meanwhile, Hershey finally arrives at his new destination and has an amazing surprise. What will the future hold for Robby and his flock? You’ll have to read the book to find out! I loved having the opportunity to follow Robby’s adventures with Hershey, and could not help but admire the beautiful illustrations by the very talented Daniela Frongia.
