July 25, 2012
"The part-time keeper in the children’s zoo is combining two loves: teaching about the animals, plus writing and drawing," notes the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of Carolyn Mueller, author of a new children's book, Bubbles the Dwarf Zebu."She has a degree in creative writing from DePauw University," reports Janice Denham.
Mueller, a 2009 graduate of DePauw, is a zoo keeper at Emerson Children's Zoo. She "characterizes Bubbles, a cow brought from India to the Saint Louis Zoo, as 'not the most attractive. Not with a beautiful coat, she has kind of a long neck. She’s just kind of a regular little cow.' Mueller wrote her book about the dwarf Asian cow, respected in her native land for her usefulness. However, a flap on her neck and hump on her back make her look different from American farm animals. Her move to the zoo allows her to find new friends."Back
