Zigzag the Rocking Roadrunner comes to life through the author's voice and the illustrator's creative visuals. Together they connect the zig zag path the protagonists all take finding their role as members of the desert community. There are humorous and stressful encounters between antagonists who need each other to survive. It is a story that speaks to all animals learning about themselves. When a path to happiness and success fades, follow another that leads to a better place. Friendship, loyalty and perseverance can be a game changer for all animal dwellers. The author, Judy places herself in the story fulfilling a need she had as a child to not only hear the voice of the author, but see her in the story. Another unexpected incident with a twist will surprise and put a smile on the reader's face. Who knows what direction life will take or the role we play in it, unless we introduce ourselves to "self".
