“Author Jeffery Carter weaves the true story of a bird blown off course by Jose into the fictitious life of Ralphie, a bird with an adventurous spirit.  Reading about Ralphie’s journey is like riding along with him on the winds of Hurricane Jose.  The vivid descriptions and the whirlwind story capture the thrill of looking for something different in life, while also realizing how good home really is.  Ralphie’s likable and courageous personality commandeers the reader to join him as he discovers new landscapes and meets new friends.  Children and adults will truly enjoy the tale of this wayward bird and his wish to see a different land.”
