We Go to the Gallery: A Dung Beetle Learning Guide


Have you taken children to a gallery recently? Did you struggle to explain the work to them in plain, simple English? With this new Dung Beetle book, both parents and young children can learn about contemporary art, and understand many of its key themes.Join John and Susan on their exciting journey through the art exhibition, where, with Mummy’s help, they will discover that real meaning does not exist, and that death is final.      

The jolly, colourful illustrations will enable the child to smoothly internalise all of the debilitating middle class self hatred contained in each artwork. New words on every page also help the child to identify the concepts, so that they may repeat them at dinner parties and impress educated guests.

'We Go to the Gallery' is the first in a series of Dung Beetle Learning books designed to make scary subjects approachable for the under 5s. Printed in bold colours and written in a clear and cheerful tone, each book will drag families into the darker recesses of the collective unconscious, for their broader cultural benefit.

This book is printed lithographically on high quality artists paper.
