I’m not a technophobe, but I have been slow to get into e-books.  No particular reason, mostly because I still find a lot to read in traditionally printed books, especially the non-fiction I have had to read recently.  So, for various reasons, my first e-book purchase was the children’s book “Doug the Dung Beetle: The Long Roll Home” by Martina Zeitler.

This book is a fun way to introduce a child to dung beetles — not in a stale, factual way, but through a story. The full colour illustrations are wonderful and the text is delightful.  While some may be squeamish when it comes to why dung beetles are called dung beetles, to most it will be interesting and to all it will be memorable!

By the way, if you want more from the talented Martina Zeitler, check out her website: http://justoutsidetheboxcartoon.com/ .
