A band of five cartoon bluebirds travel the world in search of record-setting bird species - the fastest, best mimic, highest flying, pinkest and more. This third in a series, which began with The BLUES Go Birding Across America (2010), continues to promote bird-watching among young readers through the antics of bluebird musicians Bing, Lulu, Uno, Eggbert and Sammi. . . .The facts have been vetted by a birding expert, sources are given in the acknowledgements and birding closer to home is encouraged. This is a clever extension of the series, taking advantage of children s interest in records and in Xtreme sports of all kinds. --Kirkus Reviews (Feb. 2011)
