The Terrible Tune That Came to the Zoo is Courtney Zach's first published children's book which she wrote after a car trip with her friend and friend's daughter, who happened to be fond of singing that day. With a background in art and second language acquisition, Courtney has always been interested in books and languages. She especially likes hilarious stories which is why she wrote a book that both kids and parents will have fun reading. She has always had a unique imagination and finds humor in everyday events and ordinary surroundings. Courtney currently resides in Seoul, South Korea where she teaches English, studies and finds funny things to draw.
Her next project, involves a very curious and slightly confused spider named Olive which will be released in 2013.
The Terrible Tune That Came to the Zoo is the story about a young girl, her ear-torturing song, and a rambunctious adventure around the zoo to find a new friend. The animals however, are not so amused by her singing. The rhythm of the narrative flows to create the emotions both the girl and animals are feeling in their off-beat encounters.
