Dung Beetle are an educational publishing house founded in 1936 in Dunging, a small village in Hampshire renowned for the high quality of its manure. Originally set up by a family of Presbyterian manure workers, the founders set out to deliver to children’s publishing the same fine standards of workmanship and attention to detail as they once did to dung.
Dung Beetle continue to produce high quality books and early learning tools covering a range of sensitive or difficult topics. Their key goal is simple: To embed core literacy and numeracy skills into the child’s first knowledge of evil and death.
