"That Quail Robert" by Margaret Stanger is a delightful book. It is a true story of a retired couple who find an abandoned quail egg and hatch it under a boudoir lamp on their kitchen counter. The quail grew up as a cherished & very willing member of it's human family. Robert also became quite a local star of sorts. Robert later turns out to be a 'Roberta' when she lays one perfect little egg. Robert's family tried to release her, but Robert chose to stay with his human family. It almost seems as if she knew she had to stay to teach her humans about love and life. Robert ends up deeply touching most any human whom she came upon.

Anyone that loves animals would enjoy this story. This book is also well suited for young readers, as well as adults. I laughed at all of Robert's little habits. Then I cried when she finally put her head under her wing and fell asleep for the last time.

This book will remain cherished in my book collection, hopefully to share with future generations.

This little book is a charmer. I fell in love with Robert the quail and felt as if I had been there and met him (or rather her, as it turns out). Wish I had. I finished the book last night and cannot stop thinking about it. Am sending a copy to my sister as I can't stand to part with mine. Anyone who loves animals will adore this book.

This book is such a delight! I can't imagine anyone who enjoys animals not being utterly charmed by this book. Sweet, heartwarming, quick read about a quail who hatched from an egg found in an abandoned nest, brought in and placed on a kitchen counter and voila! two or three days later surprisingly hatched a perfect baby quail who quickly is absorbed into the life of a retired couple. A real gem of a book!
