To escape the hot Arizona summer, Robby the Robin and his band of friends - his brother Ricky, the Sparrow family, a trio of Mourning Doves and Benny the ever dependable Blackbird - fly west to San Diego in search of a cool summer breeze and some seaside fun. Upon arriving in San Diego, Joy and her new friend Josie wander off to investigate a cruise ship and end up on a voyage they will never forget.
Will Joy and Josie get back to San Diego and their loved ones? Will an encounter with a killer whale be one adventure too many for these lovely little Sparrows? Are their friends and family brave enough to attempt a daring rescue mission?
These plucky birds once again demonstrate the strength of their love and loyalty to each other in this tale about teamwork and trust.

Ocean Bound is the 2nd book in the Robby's Quest series. Narrated by Tracy Elman and published by DC Rush. Tracy Elman once again brings all the different bird characters to life. I have said before in other reviews how listening to her makes me feel like I am back at the Library for story time. She is a consistent joy to listen to.
As for Robby and his friends, this book is about family, teamwork, trust, and bringing outsiders into your family when they are in need. Helping others and believing in other members of your flock or team is a great lesson to teach.
This is an audiobook review but if you can get the book as well the illustrations are a great addition. Following along while listening is a great way to learn new words and improve reading for children.
Without giving away the adventure of Robby and his friends I must say this is another great adventure audiobook that will keep you and your kids entertained for 45 minutes to an hour.
