Synopsis

Simple science text and dramatic illustrations give a close-up view of the fascinating world of the dung beetle. When an animal lightens its load, dung beetles race to the scene. They battle over, devour, hoard, and lay their eggs in the precious poop. Dung is food, drink, and fuel for new life—as crucial to these beetles as the beetles are to many habitats, including our own.

Excerpt

Somewhere in the world right now an animal
is lightening its load—
in your backyard,
on a nearby farm,
in a forest,
on a grassland far away.
Cheryl Bardoe
