Post script re ladybirds, dung beetles & cane toads

IMG_4741I am very excited to report that my copies of ‘We go to the gallery’ have just arrived!!

Some of you may remember my previous posts about Miriam Elia’s satirical look at contemporary art in the form of a 1960s ‘Ladybird Book’ that landed her in Penguin’s bad Books:

Elia has now revised the design slightly (just enough to get around the copyright issues) and called it a ‘Dung Beetle Learning Guide’.


(If you are quick, you may still be able to score a copy – here.)

Anyone who wants a reminder about how amazing dung beetles are, may like to visit one of my other posts:

And I’m sorry to report that those wily cane toads are continuing their relentless march south despite the huge desert in their path (e.g. here). They are apparently adapting better than expected to the different climatic conditions. Maybe we can learn a thing or two from them?

In any case, I think we can safely assume that our rabbit and dingo fences won’t stop them:
