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. They persuade the flock of birds they live with to take a vacation there. 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 ruining the birds’ vacation. He’s determined to have 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.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
We enjoy writing for children. Kids want to hear an exciting story filled with adventure. Children are less critical and easy to please. Children appreciate the illustrations and are excited to read something new.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Stick with it. When things get frustrating, take a break but don’t stop. This process will take some time, maybe a year maybe longer.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
One day Cathy and I were watching the birds playing in the bird bath and eating from the birdfeeder. On the top of a block wall in the back yard, the birds patiently waited their turn to eat, resembling airplanes waiting to take off at a busy airport. We were amazed at how the birds took turns at the birdfeeder and how the smaller birds would kick seed down to the larger birds, and we decided to write a children’s book about our birds.
